Verizon has announced that it is launching the Asus ZenPad Z10 4G model (ZT500KL) in the US, ahead of Asus launching the Wi-Fi version Asus ZenPad 3S 10 (Z500M).
But while it used to be that 2G/3G/4G editions of a Wi-Fi tablet had more memory capacity in form of increased RAM, the opposite is the case with the Asus ZenPad Z10 (ZT500KL) on Verizon, which has 25% less RAM than the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 (Z500M) Wi-Fi edition.
In addition to having less RAM, the 4G model also runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor instead of the new MediaTek MT8176V processor in the Wi-Fi model.
Asus ZenPad Z10 is a 9.7-inch Android 6.0 tablet with 4G LTE, that have been built to compete with the octa-core 9.7-inch Super AMOLED New Samsung Galaxy Tab S2.
The 9.7-inch screen has a 2048 x 1536 resolution display, while the tablet also has 32GB of storage with 128GB microSD card support, a 5MP front camera, and a 8MP rear camera, a micro-USB port, and 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support.
The more powerful Wi-Fi edition Asus ZenPad 3S 10 will be launched in the US later this year.
