Asus launched a Verizon exclusive (US) 8-inch tablet last year called Asus ZenPad Z8, and today a new tablet that by every account looks like the predecessor to this tablet had its FCC approval published. Carrying the model number ZT582KL, it got some of its specs revealed in the process.
Official Asus ZT582KL specs so far is that of an 8-inch tablet running Android 7.0, with a 2048 x 1536 display resolution, dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth LE, a 4680 mAh (18Wh) 3.85V Li-ion battery, and 4G LTE, with all wireless modems being supplied by Qualcomm.
Which makes it reasonable to assume that this new Asus tablet will continue to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, just like the hex-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor powered predecessor. But what processor, and how much RAM remains to be seen.
We can just make out the perforated speakers on the bottom of the tablet though from the illustraation, along with the audio jack, and presumably a USB port. The camera and the buttons seem to be in the same place as before otherwise. And as you can also see, the Asus ZT582KL is a tablet earmarked for Verizon Wireless too.
