While giant phablets like the Sony Xperia Z Ultra with its 6.4 inch diagonal look like UFOs in Europe, they find attentive ears in Asia. This is why Asus does not hesitate to draw a phablet Fonepad 7 with a screen of 7 inch. It is not the first of its kind. We will notably remember the Galaxy W from Samsung, the Studio 7.0 from Blu Products or the YziPocketPhone from Evi which offer a similar display size.

To return to the Asus Fonepad 7, this large format smartphone has an Intel Atom Z3530 processor quad-core 1.33 GHz coupled with 2 GB of RAM, an IPS screen displaying a definition of 1280 x 800 pixels, 4G / Wi-Fi / GPS / Bluetooth modules, 2/5 Megapixel photo sensors, flash memory 8 or 16 GB expandable by MicroSD and battery 3,950 mAh.
Two white and black finishes will be offered shortly. You will have to pay the equivalent of 220 euros for 8 GB capacity. At the exit of the box, there is a device rotating under Android Lollipop. Only the Taiwanese market has been mentioned so far. Nothing on international distribution.
