ASUS Malaysia today has announced a brand new tablet series, the ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG) and ZenPad C 7.0 (Z170CG) – officially launched during its ASUS Zensation Roadshow located in Mid Valley Megamall starting from 26th till 30th August 2015. The ASUS ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG) is a premium 7-inch Android tablet that combines distinguished styling, incredible entertainment capabilities, and customizable functionality with interchangeable covers to redefine the tablet experience and bring true luxury to consumers.
The ZenPad features an alluring appearance inspired by the ASUS Zen design philosophy of creating harmonious beauty and functionality. With its clean lines, embossed-leather patterning, and premium styling influenced by fashion accessories such as clutch bags and wallets, ZenPad has a luxurious appearance unique among mobile devices. Ergonomic rounded edges make ZenPad comfortable to hold and carry, and its polished metallic frame adds a bold visual accent.
Powered by a 64-bit quad-core Intel® Atom™ processor, ZenPad delivers high performance for smooth multitasking, watching videos, or gaming. Its 8MP rear-facing and 2MP front-facing PixelMaster cameras allow users to capture great-looking photos, videos and selfies in any situation, including low-light conditions.
ZenPad comes with Android 5.0 ‘Lollipop’ and features ASUS ZenUI, the all-new mobile user interface built around the concepts of freedom, connection, and expression. As the world’s first fully customizable interface, ZenUI offers advanced functionality with a stylish, clean design that places information front and center for a simpler, smarter user experience.
ASUS ZenPad 7.0 is crafted to provide exceptional entertainment experiences and built around an expansive HD IPS display, providing up to a 76.5% screen-to-body ratio and features the exclusive ASUS VisualMaster suite of visual enhancement technologies — including ASUS Tru2Life and ASUS TruVivid — offering advanced image-processing found on high-end TVs to a tablet for the first time and provides comprehensive visual optimization.
ASUS Tru2Life analyzes each pixel in an image before it is displayed and performs intelligent contrast and sharpness adjustments to boost dynamic range, revealing even the smallest details to ensure an incredibly realistic viewing experience. ASUS TruVivid improves screen clarity, brightness, and touch responsiveness by transforming the conventional six-layer display design — composed of cover glass, two layers of optical adhesive, two layers of sensor film, and an air gap in front of the LCD module — into a two-layer, fully-laminated design that eliminates the air gap, resulting in higher optical transparency for brilliant color and improved brightness.
Complementing its stunning display, ASUS ZenPad is the world’s first tablet to integrate DTS-HD Premium Sound. Together with ASUS SonicMaster, ZenPad delivers the ultimate audio experience. DTS-HD Premium Sound provides high-fidelity sound from multimedia content with DTS-HD encoding, and transforms stereo audio into virtual surround sound for immersive entertainment experiences at home or on the go. DTS-HD Premium Sound also lets users enjoy full 360-degree surround sound when listening with headphones.
ASUS ZenPad is the world’s first tablet to feature an innovative interchangeable cover design that lets users easily customize their tablet with functional back covers. These can provide extra features and additional color options, while perfectly matching ZenPad’s look.
Audio Cover is an entertainment accessory that brings cinematic, 5.1-channel surround sound to ZenPad. It includes four satellite speakers, one center-channel speaker, and one subwoofer to provide an incredible surround-sound experience when watching videos or listening to music. Audio Cover provides up to six times (6X) louder volume than ZenPad alone and up to six hours of continuous usage on a single charge. Audio Cover also doubles as a convenient stand for watching videos or getting some work done.
Zen Clutch is a fashionable accessory that combines elegant style with premium materials to provide a sophisticated carrying and protection solution for ZenPad. It features a fine leather finish and is available in a choice of two device-matching colors. Its unique folding design also serves as a stand for typing or watching videos.
Zen Case is another stylish accessory that lets users outfit ZenPad in their choice of five sleek or vivid colors, including Obsidian Black, Pearl White, Aqua Blue, Vibrant Orange, and Aurora Metallic. Zen Case features a fine leather texture and attaches to ZenPad without adding bulk, maintaining its low profile, easily portable design.
Power Case extends ZenPad’s battery life, giving users up to 15 hours of usage to easily get them through their day or even the longest international flights. This elegant solution seamlessly attaches to ZenPad and maintains its compact size, delivering power on the go without the need to carry bulky portable batteries and extra cables.
