ASUS ZenPad Z8

Sports, concert and gaming fans looking to score a life-like entertainment experience will find it in the new ASUS ZenPad Z8 tablet, exclusively from Verizon. The lightweight, sleekly designed ZenPad Z8, a multimedia powerhouse featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 hexa-core processor, is available here today and in Verizon retail stores.

Because the ASUS ZenPad Z8 runs on Verizon, you can make the most out of your tablet with Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The network was ranked “Highest Wireless Network Quality Performance across All Six Regions” by J.D. Power for the third time and number one by RootMetrics* for overall network performance across the United States for the past five consecutive testing periods. You’ll have a great experience, thanks to the speed, reliability and responsiveness of Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

Entertainment everywhere

With the Verizon-exclusive ASUS ZenPad Z8 you can livestream that slam dunk over and over again in life-like detail without the blur thanks to Tru2Life+ technology. And when you livestream your favorite band with cinematic surround sound, you’d swear you scored front row seats to their concert.

Master your world

The ZenPad Z8 delivers a truly vivid HDTV tablet experience thanks to the VisualMaster suite of picture enhancement technologies. VisualMaster employs image processing normally reserved for larger, high-end TVs to deliver incredibly realistic images. The PixelMaster camera on the ZenPad Z8 reduces noise by 400%, enhances contrast in low light mode and intelligently adjusts color and contrast automatically. Dual front-facing stereo speakers deliver smooth, rich, life-like sound thanks to SonicMaster audio by ASUS.

Additional specs:

  • 7.9” display with 2048 x 1536 (QXGA) resolution and in-plane switching technology
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon Hexa-Core 1.8 GHz processor
  • 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front-facing cameras

Accessorize your entertainment

Prop up and protect your new entertainment tablet with an assortment of case options available for pre-order. The Verizon Tablet Case for ASUS ZenPad Z8 ($34.99) and Incipio Lexington Folio ($34.99) cases both stand it up so you can enjoy all its features hands-free. As a bonus, the Verizon Tablet Case can wake the device when open and put it in sleep mode when closed. For protection from daily wear and tear, the Verizon Rugged Cover ($34.99) can help. Accidents happen. The rugged cover wraps the entire tablet and includes a built-in screen cover to protect against scratches.

The cases are also eligible for Verizon’s Case Loyalty Program so the more cases you buy, the more you save.
