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

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
