Asus Zenpad Z8s hits Verizon
Last year, Verizon added an exclusive Asus slate to its portfolio. Dubbed ZenPad Z8, it had a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor, 2 GB RAM, and Android Marshmallow on board, as well as a 7.9-inch IPS, display with 2,048 x 1,536 pixels. Now, this slate received a follow-up that has the same display and carries the same price tag but comes with noticeable improvements in other key areas.
The new Asus ZenPad Z8s is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, next to 3 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 5 MP and 13 MP front/back cameras, USB Type-C connectivity, a classic audio jack, 4G LTE connectivity, as well as a 4,680 mAh battery. Unlike its predecessor, it runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
Those interested to acquire this slate can get it for a single US$249.99 payment, but Verizon also offers them the chance to grab it for 24 monthly payments of US$10.41 each. At last, signing up for a two-year data plan can push the price down to just US$149.99.
