In the end of the May, ASUS held an event at Computex in Taipei and the new ZenPad 3S 8.0 tablet appeared at the booth. Fast forward two months and the slate arrives in the United States on Verizon with a new name - ASUS ZenPad Z8s. The retail price is $249.99, but there are cheaper ways to have it tied to a contract with the carrier.
The ZenPad Z8s has a 7.9” IPS display with a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution. The tablet runs on Snapdragon 652, paired with 3 GB RAM and 16 GB storage. There is also a microSD slot that can hold a card with up to 128 GB more.
There are two cameras on the Z8s - the main one on the back with a 13 MP sensor and a 5 MP selfie snappert. The OS is Android Nougat 7.0, and the whole setup is powered by a 4,680 mAh battery.
Verizon offers two additional options for purchasing. The ZenPad Z8s can be bought for $149.99 with a two-year contract. The other choice is $10.41/mo for 24 months without a down payment.
Thanks for the tip!
