Taiwan based company Asus has a new tablet up its sleeve. The tablet is in the 10 inch category and the good news on this is that we perhaps won’t have to wait too long for the device to arrive. This since the device has already made it to the FCC under the guise of Asus K005. Its mandatory for manufacturers to have their wares approved by the FCC before being deemed fit for use in the US. That being in process, the tablet shouldn’t be too far off from an official launch.
Coming back to the device in question, it’s apparently the Memo Pad Smart 2 tablet with a full HD display, having a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The latter can be considered one of the biggest improvements over the Memo Pad Smart 10 Asus had launched earlier in the year but suffered from a display which at 1280 x 800 pixels is far from being anything even acceptable, let alone being spectacular.
Processing power will come from a 1.7 GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chip that has already found application in a number of devices such as the Nexus 4, the Droid DNA, HTC Butterfly, the Sony Xperia Z, LG Optimus G to name just a few.
Among the other specifications the Memo Pad Smart 2 is expected to come with include 16 GB of in built storage though there will also be a microSD card slot to allow for more expansion. The device will come with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean as well as a range topping 13 megapixel camera at the rear, which should really by a photographer’s delight. The Memo Pad Smart 10 too impressed with a 5 megapixel unit.
