Description

The Zenpad Z8 comes with a 7.9-inch IPS display running at 2048 by 1536 pixels. The display has a PPI of 324, a level of sharpness that makes a lot of sense on a multimedia tablet. Another detail that speaks of the multimedia nature of the Verizon Asus Zenpad Z8 are the dual front-facing stereo speakers with DTS-HD support. Under the hood, Asus has fitted in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650, an upper-end chipset that includes a hexa-core CPU and an Adreno 520 GPU. This SoC is paired with 2GB of RAM. The Asus Zenpad Z8 features 16GB of integrated storage, but users can expand on that via the microSD card slot. Other key specs include an 8MP primary camera, a USB Type-C connector, an LTE connection and a listed battery life of 13 hours with average use.

  • Resolution:
    • 1536 x 2048 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 324 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
