Asus shows off 4:3 aspect ratio in leaked ZenPad press renders


Asus is expected to unveil its new ZenPad series tablets at Computex next week, which will feature 4:3 aspect ratio screens and Intel chips.

While the bezels are a bit big, the tablet above does have front-facing speakers, which should do some good as far as sound quality goes.

Also expect a power button below the right-side volume rocker, a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the top, and perhaps a microSD slot on the right side as well.

7-inch and 8-inch models are expected to be released, both with Intel processors and two different storage sizes. The 8-incher will have a 2048 x 1536 screen, and the 7-incher will have a 1024 x 600 screen. Expect more information on the devices next week at Computex.

    Terrible decision.Why are some tablet makers jumping over to a 4:3 ratio.I had the nexus 9 for about a week.Took it back because of the 4:3 screen.Most apps,games,magazines etc.are based on a 16:9 ratio to properly fill the screen.Movies are another reason i hated the 4:3 ratio.They already look squashed up on tablets that are 16:9 Which most movies are formatted to.On the 4:3 nexus 9 just about everything looked awful.Either squashed up even more or stretched to fit,which gave everything the conehead effect.No thanks if you want blocky tablet,Apple will sell you one.
