Asus Fonepad 7 has been around for a while in various hardware configurations and a model powered by one of the new Intel Moorefield chips was spotted for the first time back in June. The Asus Fonepad 7 model FE7530CXG has just been unveiled on the official Asus website in China and it will hit the local market on September 1.

- Processor: quad-core Intel Atom Z3530
- Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 8 GB or 16 GB of internal storage, microSD support (not confirmed, but all Fonepad devices have a microSD slot)

This new Asus Fonepad 7 has dual SIM support and is thinner than previous models - only 0.3 inches, compared to 0.41 inches. Pricing has not been revealed yet, but the tablet should hit three major Chinese electronics chains next week. More accurate technical details and information on worldwide availability will surely go public at IFA 2014.
