Asus will reportedly unveil its new tablet line at Computex next week, and it looks like we’re getting an early look thanks to some press renders obtained by Ausdroid. Called the ZenPad, these new tablets will supposedly come in both 7 and 8-inch variants, with the former toting a resolution of 1,024 x 600 and the latter with a resolution of 2,048 x 1,536. The 8-inch model will also have a 4:3 aspect ratio, similar to what we see on the iPad.

The larger of the two tablets will feature front-facing speakers, a soft touch material on the back, along with a strip of leather-like material on the edge of the back side. Also on the back, we can see a rear-facing camera and an ‘Intel Inside’ logo, backing up previous rumors that the tablets would be powered by Intel processors. We can also see the power button mounted below the volume rocker on the right side of the tablet, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack sitting up top. According to the render, the tablet looks to feature some sort of slot on the left-hand side, though whether it’s a microSD card slot or a SIM card slot for cellular connectivity is still up in the air.

Computex takes place from June 2nd to June 6th, so we’ll definitely know more about these tablets by the end of next week. Judging by the press renders and the few rumored specs we have so far, are you excited for Asus’ next tablet offerings?
