New ZenPad tablet shows up at FCC

Asus and Computex is an exciting time. Computex 2016 starts at the end of May, into the first week of June 2016. Typically Asus showcases their products at that show and then there is quite a long delay before products become available to buy in stores.

We’ve spotted a new Asus tablet at the FCC going by the product code P008. This is the second reference to this P008 model, as it previously showed up on GFX Bench.

Here is what some of the early specs indicate based on the two mentions online so far (nothing is official from Asus):

  • 8-inch
  • Android 6.0
  • 2048 x 1536 resolution
  • Snapdragon 650 (unconfirmed) hexa-core processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB storage
  • 8MP rear and 2MP front cameras
  • 4,680 mAh battery
  • 802.11 ac wifi

When products show up at the FCC, the earliest they are released and available to buy in stores is 4 weeks. Most times it’s longer than that. Given that Computex is months away, the listing showing up now is a bit confusing to us. Could Asus release some new Zenpad tablets prior to Computex 2016? Hard to imagine but you never know.

So this new tablet seems interesting. It’s somewhere between the ZenPad S 8.0 and the ZenPad 8.0 model. Asus has said previously that they want to bring more quality to their tablets, so this may very well be the next ZenPad 8.0 model.
