Leaked Details on ASUS Transformer TF700T, More Units Expected at MWC
A polish website called Tabletowo.pl has published a leaked slide containing details about the ASUS Transformer FHD TF700T.
One of the things revealed about the tablet is that it a variant of it will no longer be powered by the usual NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip; which ASUS has been exclusively using in the past. Instead, the Transformer FHD TF700T runs on a 1.5GHz APQ8060A dual-core processor by Qualcomm. The reason behind this switch was an obvious one: ASUS wanted that this variant to have more powerful video bandwidth memory. And since Tegra 3 was incapable of providing the tablet’s needed 2.4GB video bandwidth, ASUS had no choice but to use Qualcomm’s APQ8060A.
Aside from the processor, other specs believed to complete the TF700T include a 1920x1200p screen resolution, 1G LPDDR2 RAM, 2MP front facing camera, and 8MP rear camera capable of 1080p video recording. It will also run on Android 4.0.
More information about the TF700T will be revealed at Mobile World Congress. Along with the TF700T, ASUS is expected to announce the Transformer TF300T; a cheaper version of the current Transformer Prime TF201. Compared to its predecessor, the TF300T bears a regular IPS panel and 16GB NAND flash memory. On the plus side, this is the first tablet that will launch with 1066MHz clocked DDR3L memory.
