News & Reviews: ASUS ZenPad 7.0 specs
Aug 27, 2015
According to ASUS, the ASUS ZenPad tablets were created to replace the ASUS Fonepad tablet phones or tablets with smartphone call and SMS capabilities. Now that the ASUS ZenPad is here with the ASUS ZenPad C 7.0 and ASUS ZenPad 7.0, we thought we'd take a step through memory lane by going through the design, look and feel of the previous ASUS Fonepad 7 tablets up until the current ZenPad tablets. While all of them carried a 7-inch display, the Fonepad tablets were initially a lot thicker and rounder, eventually evolving to a flat and thin look with the newer Fonepad tablets. This evolved again into the clutch case-like design of the ZenPad tablets with the interchangeable Zen Case backplates of the ZenPad 7.0. Check out our comparison video in this article for yourself.

The SIRIM Database is often used like China's TENAA and also usually gives a clear indication that a device may be coming to Malaysia soon. The ASUS ZenPad 7.0 or Z370CG, ASUS ZenPad C 7.0 or Z170CG and LG G4. The ZenPad tablets will have tech specs that include the new 64-bit Intel Atom x3 processors, 1GB/2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage and 3G connectivity. Both will feature 7-inch displays but the higher-end Z370CG will offer 1280 x 800 pixel resolutions compared to the 1024 x 600 pixels on the Z170CG. The listing for the ZenPad tablets appears to be to all the usual local distributors, suggesting that we could see the ASUS ZenPad tablets sometime soon, with early estimates set at July 2015. The LG G4 on the other hand looks to be going to one of the major smartphone distributors in Malaysia, which suggests that it may be making an official comeback to Malaysia. The LG G4 is currently the leather-clad flagship smartphone from LG with a curved 5.5-inch 2K display covered by Gorilla Glass 4, 16MP rear camera with laser autofocus and OIS and much more. Neither ASUS nor LG Malaysia have made any comment or teaser on these new arrivals, but we expect both to arrive in Malaysia soon.
