Asus announces tablets, laptops and more at Computex 2015


We’re no stranger to Asus’s wide range or electronics, and today they announced a slew of new gadgets including several we’ve touched on in the past. With that in mind we’ve decided to do a roundup to give you the scoop on some of the cooler tech Asus unveiled at Computex 2015.

The Asus ZenWatch 2 has been on our radar for a while, and today the company made it official in Taipei at Computex. The wearable runs Android Wear, and comes in two different sizes with a 41mm version and one with a smaller 18mm face. Other than that, it looks to be essentially the same watch as the previous version with a few new features like better battery life and water resistance. A digital crown of sorts is present as well, but details are light at the moment.

If smartwatches aren’t your thing, the Asus ZenPad S 8.0 may be right up your alley. It’s the company’s high-end slate, and it packs an Intel Z3580 clocked at 2.2Ghz under the hood with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The display is nothing to scoff at either as it’s an 8-inch QHD panel. Throw in Wi-Fi, 8MP/5MP camera combo, Bluetooth, Android 5.0, and a Type C USB port, and you’ve got yourself a speedy little slate. There will be a cheaper model as well (sans the “S”) with dumbed down specs and a lower price tag.

On the smartphone side of things, we have the Asus ZenFone Seflie with its dual 13MP camera’s and laser assisted auto-focus. The device features a 5.5-inch FHD panel and is powered by a Snapdragon 615. There’s been no word on the RAM or storage options, but the usual 16/32GB configuration should be in play along with a 1-2GB of RAM.


In addition to the ZenWatch 2, ZenPad and Zenfone Selfie, Asus showed off numerous other product including gaming notebooks and a mini projector. They definitely covered all their technical bases, but left us in the dark regarding two of the more important things – pricing and availability. We expect that to change soon, and there will be no shortage of Asus tech ready to roll later this summer.
