Asus is apparently working on a new high-end Android tablet. A recent benchmark from GFXBench details a new version of the Eee Pad with an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor and a high-quality 2560 x 1504-pixel display, as well as on-screen capacitive buttons and Android 4.2.2. Based on screen resolution alone, we’re guessing this is a full-sized tablet rather than a 7-inch slate.
The leaked Asus tablet is expected to launch later this year to compete in the high-end market. The original Eee Pad Transformer was one of our favorite Android tablets when it came out in 2011, so we can’t wait to see what the Taiwanese company has in store for us this time around.
Asus has had a busy year so far, with a number of successful launches including most recently the new Nexus 7 tablet. The Taiwanese company clearly isn’t done with 2013, however, and is rumored to be prepping a new Windows 8.1 VivoBook and its first Chromebook for release later this year. Chairman Jonney Shih also recently revealed that he hopes to launch the first Asus smartphone targeting the U.S. in 2014.
