Asus shows some ZenPad love at IFA 2016 with ZenPad 3S 10 (Z500M)

Asus has been quite modest with their tablet offerings here in 2016. Thankfully at IFA 2016, Asus took the wraps off the ZenPad 3S 10 (Z500M) for the English speaking audience. Up until now, Taiwan has been the only market with details and promotion.

So the first question on most people’s mind is, how much does it cost and when is it available to buy? First, it’s costs € 379 EUR which puts it at a price below the Samsung Galaxy S2 flagship tablet. Certainly Asus is putting out a premium tablet and the price is going to be higher than their ZenPad 10 models.

Release date wise, we haven’t heard much. Expect this to be hitting store shelves in the next couple of months depending on where you’re located. We need to see this at the FCC before we can be accurate regarding a US and Canada release date.


Asus has come to the conclusion that the marketplace desires more premium tablets. This tablet addresses those demands. You are getting top end build quality along with some top end hardware. Asus didn’t skimp on materials or hardware on this tablet. Is this what you’ve been waiting for?

There are a few key features of the ZenPad 3S 10 (Z500M) that need mentioning. Asus states this tablet has the world’s narrowest bezel. It has a finger print sensor on the front of the tablet (home button). It also has Z Stylus support and compatibility. It also features Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 which will be handy on a regular basis.

We will break down more details in the coming day! For more, see our dedicated page here.
