Asus FonePad Note 6 unveiled: narrow bezel, stylus and Intel inside
Asus has just stormed into IFA with a torrential rain of mobile devices. Among them are two new FonePads, gadgets that are on the border between a phone and a tablet: the Asus FonePad Note 6 and the Asus FonePad 7. The index in the name stands for the screen size, so we’re looking at a 6-inch and a 7-inch device, and they come with pretty narrow bezels and Intel inside.

The Asus FonePad Note 6 is the smaller of the two and you could easily mistake this for a phone. It’s a ‘FonePad’ in Asus terms, but with a small bezels, other manufacturers have named such devices phablets with no hesitation.

Now, the FonePad Note 6 is not a light or a thin device - it weighs 210 grams and measures 10.3mm.

It also comes with a built-in stylus, a full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel display and runs on a brand new Intel Atom Z2580 dual-core chip with Hyperthreading. It’s an impressive device all around. The screen is sharp and luminant with brightness reaching the above average 450 nits. The Intel chip comes with 2GB of RAM, and the FonePad Note 6 features Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Camera-wise, the device comes with an 8-megapixel rear shooter and 1.2MP front one. There is 16GB or 32GB of expandable internal storage. The battery is a pretty solid 3200mAh one.

This "might" have been a contender for the Note 1... But against the Note 3 it doesn't stand a chance.

If the off-contract price for this is around $300 then it will be something worth considering. I actually like the design too.

A 1080p screen, a new dual core Intel CPU, a stylus? All these for $300 off contract? O_O
Too much hope in a comment. :D

It's very possible because the Intel chipset and the rest of the internals are not that expensive. That's why you see ASUS tablets with Intel hardware selling for about $300 or less. The only real cost here comes from the added cellular hardware and the higher resolution screen. It may more realistically come out for about $400, but if they really want to make a statement I would go for $300.

If this were a 7" phablet from Samsung I'd be cre_min' in my pants but, somehow sounds incomplete.

Kinda like the looks but I'm more interested in their Padfone than this Fonepad.
