There has been a lot of new out there on the internet about an initial leak. We believe that some of that information is incorrect. This is the correct model listing for the ZenPad 7.

  • Z370C
    • We believe that this is the traditional 7-inch tablet offering from Asus. The models listed below, are part of what we believe to be the ZenPad C series, of which we are currently unclear.
  • Z370CG
    • This is a 3G model of the 7-inch ZenPad 7 tablet.
  • Z370KL
    • This is a 4G LTE version of the ZenPad 7 and uses a Snapdragon processor, which is indicated by the “K” in the model numbering.


Breaking News! Here are the model numbers for the ZenPad 7 tablets:

  • Z170C – 1A013A (Black)
  • Z170C – 1B009A (White)
  • Z170CG – 3G
  • Z170KL or Z170CL – 4G LTE (we are guess that it’s going to have a snapdragon processor, indicated by the “K”)

ZenPad 7 Price (not official):

  • Europe prices: € 139 Euros for Z170C – € 159 Euros for Z170CG
  • USA prices: $158 USD and $180 USD
  • Canadian prices: $189 CAD and $217 CAD
  • UK prices: £100 pound and £114

ZenPad 7 Release Date:

We are still awaiting the FCC submission for the ZenPad 7 tablet. On May 13th, we’ve seen the ZenPad 8 at the FCC. In general, it’s going to be at least 4 weeks after the FCC submission is published. In general, Asus tablets have been anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks after showing up at the FCC. With Computex happening in the first week of June, we would expect the ZenPad 7 release date to be mid June to late June.

Our Opinion on Recent Rumors:

Right now, it’s hard to say about the accuracy of the information out there. The resolution is very low, which doesn’t match up with Asus and their Zen branding. The question is whether the current rumored specs are for a budge model ZenPad 7 and that there will be a premium model released also. Jerry Shen, Asus CEO, did indicate that there may be two at most 7-inch ZenPads. Thus, it’s possible that the leak is about the cheaper of the two 7-inch models. However, there is no indication that there are 2 models going to be released. We think spec wise, we should wait for better information before drawing any conclusions.



Asus has a long history of making impressive 7-inch tablets. Asus make huge inroads into the North American market with the Google Nexus 7. The Nexus 7 is arguably the greatest Nexus tablet ever released. It’s still very popular today and hit at magical price point for consumers.

Do not be confused by the existing articles on the internet from 2010 where there was a different ZenPad 7 made by a company that is not Asus. The other company who released a ZenPad 7 in 2010 is no longer branding or releasing tablets under that name. So if Asus does release a tablet with the same naming scheme, I suppose it’s not the first one!

asus-zenpad-memo-7-white-reviewGoogle and Asus are no longer working on tablets, and because of that, the MeMO Pad 7 was released by Asus. This was a great, fun, tablet line-up with lots of colors and a great price point. Expandable storage and everything else you want from a small tablet.

It does appear at this point in time that the ZenPad 7 will replace the 7-inch MeMO Pad tablets. We can’t say what’s going to be new, but lighter, faster and thinner will be part of this new release.

We will look at the ZenPad vs. iPad mini from a comparison perspective once we learn of specs. We hope MWC 2015 will shed some light on what Asus is bringing to the ZenPad 7.

Will It Be Known As The ZenPad 7 or the ZenPad MeMO 7 Tablet?

Please participate in our poll over to the sidebar. We want to know from you, what branding you hope Asus decides. Keep “MeMO” or drop that entirely from the name?


This is the 2014 MeMO Pad 8. Will the MeMO 7 in 2015 be of the same design?


So far this image is what we have. Yes, it appears to be a 7-inch tablet with an Intel processor inside. We disagree with reports that the ZenPad is a replacement for the fonepad. We don’t see any indicators on this tablet that indicate front facing speakers of any sort. We do know that it looks great and that we’re excited for some leaks as the Mobile World Conference nears.

CES 2012 was a big show for Asus. The 7-inch 370T was the story of CES and it impressed Google enough that they released it as the Nexus 7.


Below you see the original or “first ever” product rendering of the MeMO tablet. In addition, Asus showed off a 3D model which never saw wide release, but did show off Asus’ ability to innovate.zenpad-eee-pad-memo original-memo-tablet memo-pad-me173 memo-in-hand-zenpad memo-3d-asus-tablet

    If Asus has any plan to release a Zenpad S 7 model then my advise is to make it LTE, FULL HD and of course with Good cameras, 8 for rear and 2/5 for front. Please We want LTE and voice calling functionality so that we don’t have to rely on Wi-Fi always and can connect to internet from anywhere and have a choice to use the Tab as a big screen Phone.

    If Asus does this, We will just say, “Shut up, and take my money”. Because we all know Asus is a reliable and time tested company.

    Earlier we saw ZE551ML aka ZenFone 2. Now it is time to bring the big daddy of ZenFone 2 in the market. I am sure many other device makers has a bad dream waiting for them, with the release of a FHD ZenPad 7 LTE.

      I agree with you. I would love to have it all in a 7-inch device. Phone, pen, and tablet as one with top specs.

    ZenPad is impressive at first glance: a cleanly designed plastic 7 incher with leathery finish at the back and metal chamfered edges that gives it a premium look. Color saturation of the IPS panel is good per advertised. The DTS-HD premium sound was great as well especially since the speaker is front-facing. The issues you have to live with are: the non-removable battery has some heating concerns that would shutdown the device; it crashes summarily while playing CoC and Boom Beach and for a new Intel 64 bit quadcore, I wouldn’t expect it to happen at all (I play CoC on my iPod 4th Gen & it hardly crashes, and it’s 3 years old now and Apple even stopped upgrading its OS); while watching clips on YouTube, it would randomly crash as well; after the crash comes the issue with turning it on which would take quite a long time I thought the device totally died (then I learned I had to reboot by pressing volume up and power button at the same time, otherwise, the power button wouldn’t turn on the device at all). I’d understand the lag because ZenPad7 Z170CG isn’t high end after all but the crashes are a big bummer for this device. Overall, it’s nice for calling and texting, dual sim is supported and it works perfectly; ditto for web browsing that isn’t heavy with videos. I bought this as my first ‘android practice device’ to be familiar with the ecosystem. I expected above-average performance for a budget device and new chip from Intel, but it didn’t live up to my expectations. This means I cannot add more games to this tablet which offers 16G of storage or essentially 11G for the user because or pre-installed apps, most are useful though. Z170CG is a budget device that still has ‘sub-par performance’ even up to this day where competition on the mid-range section is so fierce, while other OEMs can do more on the performance side without burning a hole in the pocket (i.e., xiaomi, Lenovo, and other local brands). Asks seriously needs to provide regular updates for this device to resolve the crashing issues to make it a keeper. Otherwise it’s just gonna be a paperweight with a colourful lcd.

    I want the Z370CG in Germany. At this Moment it is possible to buy the me372cl or FE375cxg.

    • Staff September 6, 2015 at 6:11 am #

      Something strange going on with the Germany ZenPad models, or at least on Amazon.de. A week ago, they had over 40 different models available, but removed them. Now there are about 3 models. The Z370CG will be there. It could be any day really. We will see what we can find out and will post back here. Thanks.
