Asus intros a new Fonepad 7 with Android 5.0 Lollipop on board
While the new Fonepad doesn't look too different from the Fonepad 7 FE170CG that was released in 2014, it brings important improvements when it comes to specs. The device is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z3530 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, and sports a 7-inch IPS display with 800 x 1200 pixels. It obviously lets you make phone calls, supporting micro SIM cards, LTE, and 3G connectivity. Furthermore, the Fonepad 7 features a 2 MP front-facing camera, 5 MP rear camera, 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB or 16 GB of internal memory, 5 GB of cloud storage space (for life), and microSD card slot.
The Fonepad 7 FE375CL weighs 299 grams, measures 108.9 x 194.3 x 9.8 mm, and comes with a battery that can provide up to 12 hours of usage time.
The new Fonepad 7 will be released in Taiwan first, for prices starting at around $250. Asus didn't say if it plans to launch the device around the world, though its presence on the company's global website (see the source link below) suggests that it does.
