Intel-powered Asus ZenPad 8 shows up unannounced
Earlier this month, we showed you the back of an unannounced Asus tablet called ZenPad 7, while also informing you about an upcoming ZenPad 8. Now, we can take a look at the latter, and, thankfully, we can see its front side, too.

Reportedly sporting an 8-inch display with 1536 x 2048 pixels and a 4:3 aspect ratio, the ZenPad 8 is obviously larger than the ZenPad 7 (which offers a 7-inch screen with just 600 x 1024 pixels). It seems that the ZenPad 8 features front-facing speakers, a front-facing camera, and, of course, also a rear camera. The slate is powered by an Intel processor, and probably has a microSD card slot. Its back cover appears to have a leather-like texture, as we can see in the first image embedded below (which shows the ZenPad 7 in front of the ZenPad 8).

Both the ZenPad 7 and ZenPad 8 should be announced by Asus in early June at Computex 2015, and could be available sometime in July, almost certainly running Android Lollipop out of the box. It's said that the ZenPad 7 will have prices starting at about $160. The ZenPad 8 will undoubtedly be more expensive. Not too expensive, we hope.
