ASUS may have been relatively quiet on the tablet front for the past few months but it appears that this will change in the second half of the year. Two Russian device certification documents appear to have revealed the ASUS Fall 2013 tablet lineup and it promises both Android and Windows 8 devices. Let’s have a closer look.
The current ASUS MeMO Pad Smart ME301T should also make way for the SmartPad MeMO ME302KL. Detailed specifications have been leaked:
Rumoured ASUS SmartPad MeMO ME302KL specifications:
- Processor: 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon with Adreno 320 GPU
- Operating system: Google Android 4.x Jelly Bean
- Cellular connectivity: 4G/LTE
- Other connectivity: GPS, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0
- Display: 10.1-inch Full HD (1920×1080)
- RAM: 1GB
- Storage: 16GB onboard and microSD cards up to 32GB
- Rear-facing camera: 13MP
- Front-facing camera: 1.2MP
- Battery: 5,050mAh
- Dimensions: 266 × 181.7 × 9.9 millimeters
- Weight: 579 grams
There could also be an Intel-processor based variant known as the SmartPad MeMO ME302C.
ASUS will also update its Transformer Pad lineup. The Transformer Pad TF300 will make way for the Transformer Pad TF302. Two models appear to be on tap: The TF302T with Wi-Fi and the TF302TG with both Wi-Fi and 3G. While there are no details, it’s fair to assume that this will be primarily a hardware refresh.
The second model, the Transformer Pad TF501, could be a new design. It could also simply replace the Transformer Pad Infinity(TF700). Again, two models are on tap: The TF501T with Wi-Fi and the TF501TG with Wi-Fi and 3G. Both are likely to run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
On the Windows 8 front, the ASUS Vivo Tab Smart (ME400) will be succeeded by the Vivo Tab Smart ME402C (Wi-Fi) and ME402CL (4G/LTE and Wi-Fi). A refresh perhaps with Intel’s new Bay Trail Atom processors is again likely.
