The ZenPad 3s 8.0 will be both the successor to last year's ZenPad 3 8.0 and the smaller brother to the current ZenPad 3s 10. Display resolution and battery capacity will remain identical to last year's model.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
