Asus FonePad 7 launched in India for Rs 17,499
Asus has launched its latest version of the FonePad 7 in India today. Priced at Rs 17,499, the FonePad 7 runs on Intel’s Clover Trail Plus Z2560 dual-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz. It also features a 7-inch display and comes with a micro-SIM slot, which also doubles it up as a phone with calling features.
On the specifications front, the Asus FonePad 7 has a 1280×800 pixel IPS display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot. It also has a 5-megapixel rear and 1.2-megapixel front cameras. It has a mammoth 3,950mAh battery, which the company claims is good enough for 28 hours of talk time or 10 hours of tablet usage. It weighs 340 grams and runs on Android 4.2 Jellybean with Asus’s own UI skin on top.
Essentially, the new generation FonePad 7 has a better processor and double the storage than the previous generation but has a slightly smaller battery and a higher price, which can be attributed to the weak Indian Rupee. You can check out our review of the previous FonePad here.
