It seems like ASUS thinks that 7-inchers weren’t big enough for us, so they introduced yet another phablet – the ASUS Fonepad 8.

The ASUS Fonepad 8 features a narrow bezel design on the sides which reminds us of Apple’s iPad Mini but it’s not strikingly similar like other cheap knock-offs. It has dual front speakers combined with SonicMaster technology that will definitely make this device great for watching videos, movies, and even playing games.


It is powered by a 64-bit Intel® Atom™ quad-core processor Z3560, 1GB RAM, and runs on Android Kitkat. It also has a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera. Like the affordable Fonepad 7, it will also come in dual-sim functionality which is great so we can use mobile data directly onto the tablet. Here are the complete specs of the AUS Fonepad 8.
