Taiwanese multinational company, ASUS, has been busy over the weekend with its ZenSensation roadshow – seeing the Zenpad 7.0 be the only tablet, while 4 Zenfones were announced: Zenfone Selfie, Zenfone 2 Laser, Zenfone 2 Deluxe and the Zenfone Go. A headache causing model line-up, that in the past has already been quite a mouthful.
During the ASUS# zensationroadshow which is set to take place at MidValley Megamall till the 30th August, ASUS is showcasing their customiseable ZenPad 7.0 tablet alongside the ZenPad C, which was also announced at an earlier date.
Over the weekend ASUS Malaysia shared their Cosplay Selfie challenge to win a yet to be released Zenfone Selfie. ASUS will reward the most creative Cosplay Selfie on its Facebook and it’ll note the number of likes for photos to give you a chance at the selfie-centric smart phone.
Very much on the smaller side of tablets, ASUS will soon release its new ZenPad series that promises to offer a premium tablet experience for the masses. Touted to be the first tablet with customisable functional back covers, ASUS is adding the ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG) into its tablet line-up and it joins its entry-level ZenPad C. The ZenPad series is the tablet equivalent of its Zenfone line up and eventually this would replace its current FonePad and MeMoPad tablet series.
After the Zenfone 2, ASUS is expected to announce its new ZenPad tablet series at Computex 2015. You can expect Intel Atom powered internals and the front display is pushing a 4:3 aspect ratio that’s similar to the iPad.
Now a new leak of its ZenPad 8 has revealed more of its exterior design. The back is shown with a dual texture design with a leather-like appearance at the bottom for better grip. The power and rocker buttons are placed on the right side and the front appears to have dual stereo speakers as well. There’s an exposed slot on the left which could be used for an expandable microSD card slot.
The Zenfone series is ASUS surprising breakthrough in the smart phone segment, propelling themselves from zero to Malaysia’s #3 smart phone brand in 2015. Not to rest on its laurels, they are about to replicate the same formula for its tablets, offering high-end features and experience in an affordable price range.
According to recent leaks, ASUS is coming up with a new ZenPad series that’s expected to run on Intel’s new Atom processors.
