Asus ZenPad Z8 might launch on Verizon soon

Asus ZenPad Z8 Android tablet coming soon to Verizon Wireless

The upcoming 8-inch Android slate is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor, also featuring 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, and a microSD slot.

A new Asus ZenPad tablet is apparently heading for Verizon Wireless and, by the looks of its features, it will probably aim budget-conscious users. Unfortunately, this slate does not seem to feature a premium design as well, but that remains to be seen. For now, the only image of the ZenPad Z8 shows it from the front.

The photo and the information about the specs come from notorious leakster Evan Blass, who wrote the following message next to the image above: "Asus Zenpad Z8 for VZW: Snapdragon 650, 8", 1536 x 2048, 2GB/16GB, 8MP/1.8MP, microSD." While the Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 is not such a weak processor and the 8-inch display has a generous resolution, the amount of memory and internal storage space offered by this tablet might soon become insufficient for most users. The Android version installed on the Asus ZenPad Z8 has not been revealed, but considering its specs, it should come with Android Marshmallow.

Unfortunately, this device did not get an official launch yet, but we will probably hear more about in the first part of June.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
