Asus announced the Asus Transformer Mini today at COMPUTEX 2016 in Taiwan, and the Transformer Mini is their newest 10.1-inch Windows 10 tablet with keyboard aka 2-in-1 or detachable. It is generally similar to the Asus Transformer Book T100HA that was released in October last year, although it has some significant differences too, like the built-in kickstand.
Asus Transformer Mini has specs like a 10.1-inch screen with HD resolution of 1280 x 800 and 400cd/m2 brightness, powered by a Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor, with options of 2GB and 4GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage.
It looks like a well performing tablet for not too much money, as it has a 11 hour battery life, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, and a front camera, but no rear camera, but there is a fingerprint reader there instead for quicker or more secure logins.
With a weight of 530 grams for the tablet, Asus went ahead and officially called it the worlds lightest 2-in-1 tablet. In the 10.1-inch Windows 10 2-in-1 category this is actually true even, as it clocks in just ahead of the Lenovo Miix 3 10 in terms of low weight. The thickness is 8.2 mm.
Asus Transformer Mini (T102) as this tablet is called, also has a USB Type-C port, HDMI port, and side stereo speakers. The tablet is made with an aluminum chassis, and comes in the color options of grey or white.
The remaining specs will be announced closer to the mid-summer launch.
