The ASUS Fonepad Note FHD 6 is a new phablet joining the company’s product lineup for 2013.
The device features a 6-inch Super IPS+ display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, and a pixel density of ~367 ppi. ASUS claims that this display can be used even in bright lighting conditions, as it features a display brightness of 450 nits. Meanwhile, for maximum media enjoyment, ASUS included SonicMaster stereo speakers on its front. The phablet also supports the use of a stylus.
These features, it had been observed, are comparable to those found on other phablets. The HTC One, for example, also comes with front speakers. Likewise, the Samsung Galaxy Note supports stylus input, a feature which ASUS has not offered prior to this device.
Joining this list of specifications is a dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, PowerVR SGX 544 MP2 graphics processor, 2 GB of RAM, an 8 MP rear-facing main camera, and a 1.2 MP front-facing secondary camera. The device, unfortunately, does not support LTE connectivity.
