COMPUTEX 2017 | Asus unveils Zenpad 3s 8.0 Z582KL with 2K resolution display
Following on the footsteps of the new ZenPad 3s 10 will be the smaller 7.9-inch ZenPad 3s 8.0 as spotted by Quandt on his Taipei tour. The all-aluminum tablet is notable for its 2K 2048 x 1536 resolution display that is uncommon for a tablet this size. Other core specifications include:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC
- 3 GB or 4 GB RAM
- 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage space
- Integrated 4680 mAh battery
- 13 MP f/2.0 rear + 5 MP front cameras
- Android 7.1 w/ ZenUI 3.5
- 6.9 mm thick
In comparison, last year's ZenPad 3 8.0 is equipped with the older Snapdragon 650 SoC and lower resolution rear and front cameras. It's also slightly thicker at 7.6 mm with the same 4680 mAh battery. It remains to be seen if Asus will update the 2K display on the ZenPad 3s 8.0 with perhaps a brighter backlight or wider color gamut or if it will be the exact same panel as on its predecessor.
Exact prices and launch dates have yet to be revealed. The ZenPad 3 8.0 launched in Q3 2016 for about $300 USD depending on the SKU and so we are expecting a similar Q3 2017 launch window and price for the impending ZenPad 3s 8.0.
