Asus ZenPad 3S 8.0 unveiled with Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor

Asus launched a new 7.9 inch ZenPad 3S 8.0 tablet at the ongoing Computex tech show in Taipei. The tablet is a sort of upgrade to the ZenPad 3 8.0, although some may say it is just a smaller version of the ZenPad 3S 10. There are no pricing details available at this time.

The new ZenPad 3S 8.0 is powered by Snapdragon 652 Soc with Adreno 510 GPU. The ZenPad 3S 8.0 has a 6.9mm slate with an aluminum body, which may look like most of the tablets in the market now.

The "stunning" 2K display with VisualMaster technology is likely unchanged, and the same goes for all those premium audio enhancements and middling 4680 mAh battery. It offers two variants with 3GB of RAM and 4GB of RAM which can be combined with 32GB and 64GB storage variants available. Just like a smartphone, the new Asus ZenPad 3S has a 13 Megapixel of Primary camera along with a 5 Megapixel of front facing camera for video calling and selfies.

The tablet comes with a 7.9-inch display and a 1536 x 2048 pixel resolution, which matches the ZenPad 3S 10, at least when it comes to pixel count (the latter has a bigger display obviously). You can expand the memory storage of the device up to 128 GB by using an additional microSD card on it. It comes with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box, with Asus ZenUI 3.5 custom skin on the top. Sensors on the tablet include a Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, and E-Compass and Gyroscope sensor. The tablet is backed by 4680mAh non-removable battery and the company claims that it will offer up to 11 hours of battery life.
