The new Asus Transformer Mini T103 was unveiled at COMPUTEX today, as the successor to the Asus Transformer Mini T102HA. The new model now has eSIM and built-in 4G LTE.
It is expected to launch late in fall this year, but even so the predecessor is already on sale. The main specs are mainly the same as before, apart from the new 4G LTE inclusion and eSIM that Asus says makes it easy to switch mobile numbers withouth changing SIM cards, even internationally, where a user can simply log into the website and buy a data plan on the go.
Other than that, the new Asus Transformer Mini T103HAF is a 10.1-inch Windows 10 Pro 2-in-1 tablet, powered by a Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor, featuring 4GB of RAM, and 64GB/128GB of storage.
As the detachable tablet it is, it comes with the keyboard included in the price, just like the predecessor does. It also comes with the stylus pen included and a flip on the side of the keyboard to stick it into.
The 10.1-inch screen has a HD resolution of 1280 x 800, and offers active digitizer support of course, for that pen. It also has a built-in kickstand just like a Surface tablet. The new Asus Transformer Mini T103HAF also comes with a 2MP front camera and USB 3.0 port, and has an 11 hour battery life.
The Asus Transformer Mini T103HAF launch price is from $349 and upwards, but the predecessor is on sale for $249 for those who don’t want the built-in 4G.
Another option is the upcoming and faster Chuwi SurBook Mini.
