ASUS Malaysia has teased a new FonePad tablet is coming to our shores very soon. The screen is said to be bigger yet but manages maintain a slim profile with a narrower bezel.
The device in question is the new ASUS FonePad 8 that’s powered by Intel’s 64-bit processor. With growing demand of tablets with phone call features, this will be an extra option for those seeking something better than the current FonePad 7.

Naturally those who wants a tablet as a daily device would want bigger screens without being overly bulky. The FonePad 8 gets an 8″ IPS display that pushes 1280×800 resolution and it is encased in a compact body that has a 5.06mm bezel. The result is a narrow 120mm width which is more compact than a 7.9″ Mi Pad (135.4mm) and iPad mini (134.7mm). Probably the closest 8″ tablet to beat is the Huawei MediaPad M1 which is marginally wider at 120.7mm. It is quite slim too at 8.9mm and weighs 310grams.
Underneath, it runs on Intel’s newer Atom Z3530 Dual-Core processor and it is mated to either 1GB or 2GB RAM with 16GB/32GB storage capacities. There’s a microSD slot supporting up to 64GB cards and dual micro-SIM slots that are 3G HSPA+ supported with speeds up to 42Mbps.
Also included is pair of 5MP + 2MP cameras and it supports video recording at HD 720p resolution. The battery is a 15.2 Wh unit that’s rated to last 12 hours of continuous use. Like the newer FonePads, there’s front facing stereo speakers for a better multimedia experience and it runs on Android 4.4 with ZenUI skin on top. So far they have yet to release official availability dates but it should be happening quite soon.
