Asus today launched a new version of its premium 9.7” Android tablet, the ZenPad 3S 10. The new version adds support for LTE and offers upgraded internals when compared to the Wi-Fi only version launched in August last year.
The ZenPad 3S 10 LTE Z500KL comes with a 9.7-inch IPS display with 2048 x 1536 resolution and exclusive VisualMaster technology. The display boasts of the world’s thinnest bezel at 5.32mm and a high screen-to-body ratio of 78%. To further enhance your multimedia experience, the VisualMaster tech includes ASUS Tru2Life+ with motion-estimation and motion-compensation (MEMC) algorithms that ensure blur-free video without any judder. You also get 95% NTSC color gamut coverage for vibrant color reproduction as well as a Bluelight filter to minimize eye fatigue. The display supports pen input as well, with the Z stylus, supporting up to 1024 pressure levels.
The tablet runs on the hexa-core Snapdragon 650 chipset with Adreno 510 graphics, paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. It comes equipped with an 8MP snapper at the back and a 5MP camera on the front for video calls. Asus has upgraded the LTE version in the battery life department as well, fitting a 7800mAh capacity battery inside it. The company claims the tablet delivers up to 16 hours of battery life, which is certainly quite impressive, at least on paper. In terms of software, the tablet runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system.
For now, the ZenPad 3S 10 LTE is available in Malaysia only, where it has been priced at RM1,799 ($405).
