ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 Is An Android Tablet With a 2K Display

We don’t often get to see a new Android tablet get released by one of the major manufacturers these days but ASUS did release one alongside the Snapdragon 821 version of ZenFone 3. It’s called the ZenPad 3S 10 and by the looks of it, it’s quite a decent offering actually.

The display on the front is a 9.7” LED panel of 2K (2048 x 1536) resolution. More-importantly, it has 4:3 aspect ratio which allows more content in a more normal way and with Tru2Life provides more vivid images. ASUS’s active Z Stylus is also supported.

Under the hood, you get a 64-bit hexa-core MediaTek MT8176 chipset with dual Cortex-A72 cores at 2 Ghz and quad Cortex-A53 cores at 1.6 Ghz. Alongside it is 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage (which is expandable by 128 GB) and PowerVR GX6250 graphics.

At the back sits a 5 megapixel camera, along with a 5 MP shooter on the front. The home-button also integrates a finger-print scanner. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Miracast, GPS/GLONASS and Bluetooth. DTS Headphone: X technology is supported for audiophiles while there’s a USB Type-C port for your cables.

Battery capacity is set at 5900mAh which also supports Fast Charging 3.0. The OS running on the phone is Android 6.0 Marshmallow with ZenUI customization. Pricing is set at around $350 when the tablet gets released early next month. We just hope that the availability is good enough.

      This is a tablet. You are an idiot if you use your tablet as your main camera.

        you on fire or something :/ ?! that was blunt…

        ofc , nobody uses that as a main cam but im a staunch advocate of tablets having better cams !!
        and why shouldn’t they ?! they cost more than smartphones , why can’t some of that money go into the cam ?!

        is it wrong to take a picture with a tab ?!
        i don’t see the idiocy in that.

          You do realize megapixels are not everything, right? 5MPs are more than enough for whatever odd shots one needs to take with a tablet. I’d rather the money be spent somewhere else.

          And no, tablets do not cost more than mobiles. The world’s most expensive tablet, Apple’s iPad, costs roughly half that an iPhone.

            lol … you have to take iphone out of the equation.. it is the priciest smartphone every year. (save a few gimmick filled phones which aren’t worth their salt)

    2k is still pretty low. My three year old LG G3 has a higher resolution than that.
