A new Asus Transformer tablet is being previewed online on the manufacturer’s Facebook page. Over the past few days, Asus claimed that the device would “transform your possibilities,” “transform your mobility,” and “transform your perception.” The new Asus Transformer tablet is expected to be revealed on September 4th.
According to Android Authority, these hints possibly point to a refreshed Transformer Pad Infinity tablet, which Asus showcased during Computex earlier this year. During the unveiling, the device offered a 10.1 inch IPS display with a WQXGA resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels and 178-degree wide viewing angles ad . It also comes with an NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU, 72-core GeForce GPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and expansion via SD card slot. Furthermore, it packs support for 4K Ultra HD through an HDMI port, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n with Miracast, and Bluetooth 3.0+EDR. The interface includes an audio jack, stereo speaker, and internal microphone. It draws power from a 31Wh Li-polymer Battery and offers the following sensors: G-Sensor, Light Sensor, Gyroscope, E-compass, and GPS. The tablet has dimensions of 263 x 180.8 x 8.9mm and weighs 600 grams. It sells for $399.
Asus is also selling a separate QWERTY keyboard dock that works with the tablet. This dock adds 16Wh of battery life, as well as a USB 3.0 port and SDXC Card Reader. Bundled together, the tablet and mobile dock cost $499. It measures 263 x 180.8 x 7mm, and weighs 450 grams.
In related news, an unknown ASUS tablet with model number K00C was recently spotted at the FCC. The listing did not divulge much information about the tablet, save for its 10-inch display, as well as support for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Asus is among the group of manufacturers which have released teasers prior to the trade show. Sony, HTC, and Samsung have all hinted about their upcoming releases.
