A few hours ago, a YouTube video showing the updated ASUS FonePad to be revealed at IFA 2013 appeared, but it was set to private just a few minutes later. Fortunately, there was enough time to spot the refreshed specs of this tablet and there is no doubt that the official confirmation will arrive later this week.
For now, these are the leaked specs of the ASUS FonePad 7:
- Processor: dual-core 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z2560
- Graphics accelerator: PowerVR SGX 544MP2
- Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 8 GB ROM and microSD card reader (up to 64 GB)
- Display: 7-inch WXGA IPS with 1,280X800 pixels
- Camera: rear 5 MP with F2.4 lens
- Audio: stereo front speakers with SonicMaster technology
- Operating system: Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
There are no major design changes, but internal ones may exceed expectations. For example, the rear camera is rumored to allow Full HD video capture while the updated FonePad is expected to cost less than $330.
