It seems that ASUS hasn’t completely finished new product announcements at Computex this year. During Qualcomm’s keynote, the CEO of taiwanese company came on stage throwing a new tablet, you can glimpse in the photo above, but has not been officially presented. ASUS has confirmed the MEMO Pad FHD 10 LTE, a variant of tablets presented a few days ago, that stands out not only for the presence of the LTE radio, as the name suggests, but also to have at its core a Snapdragon processor instead of Intel (in fact we were attending a Conference of Qualcomm).
In the third quarter of this year, we will raise the bar of mobile devices, launching an incredible LTE tablet, which will have a Qualcomm Snapdragonprocessor, full HD display and ASUS SonicMaster, to bring our customers a superior mobile experience. I will save the rest for our launch event in the fall.
Thus says Jerry Shen, CEO of ASUS.
We see only a small detail: the speech begins with “third quarter”, which usually suggests to summer, but ends in “Autumn”; It is true that the Q3 ends at the end of September, then incorporates a week of fall, but there is still the possibility that the tablet will be presented in the summer and then launched in the autumn. In any case the expand of the times, and the words he used, we suggest that the Qualcomm which Shen refers to both the Snapdragon 800, the previously announced flagship model that represents the best of the chip maker for this 2013.Definitely a good way to “raising the bar”.
Update: according to notebookitaliacolleagues reported, the bar won’t be as high as we thought. Aboard the MeMO Pad FHD 10 LTE there would be indeed a Qualcomm AP8064, which is the same processor on board the Nexus 4, and has also confirmed the launch in the fall. However, this is a good processor, but certainly from a template which will debut almost a year after the Google mobile phone we expected more (happy obviously if things changed in the meantime).
After the jump you can find the video preview in Italian.
