Asus ZenPad 8.0 ‏(Z380M) In Store

The new 2nd generation Asus ZenPad 8.0 ‏(Z380M) 2016-2017 model is in store already, long before both the official unveiling in June, and the June 20 release: http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-Z380M-A2-GR-Zenpad

(UPDATE: The Asus ZenPad 8.0 ‏(Z380M) was updated to Android 7.0 Nougat in May 2017.)

The Asus ZenPad 8.0 ‏(Z380M) is the successor to the Asus ZenPad 8.0 (Z380C), an 8-inch Android tablet launched in June 2015 with 1280 x 800 HD screen and an Intel Atom x3-C3200 processor.

The processor is better this year though with Asus opting for a MediaTek MT8163 processor instead, with Mali-T720 MP4 GPU. Other than that the new Asus ZenPad 8.0 ‏(Z380M) will be launched in June with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and 128GB microSD card support, but not really any other changes from the predecessor.

But for being a cheap budget tablet in the 8-inch Android tablet category, it does a good job anyway.
It has specs like options of 1GB or 2GB RAM, 8GB and 16GB storage options, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 2MP front camera, a 5MP rear camera, DTS HD sound, g-sensor, e-compass, hall sensor, light sensor, and GPS.

The battery life is 8 hours, while the thickness is 8.5 mm with a weight of 350 grams. The color options of the new Asus ZenPad 8.0 are dark grey, white, and gold.
