Asus' purported ZenPad is also expected to be a budget offering to be launched at Computex 2015Asus

Asus' recent Zenfone 2 series of smartphones had generated increased pre-launch hype in multiple countries. One reason for this was that these handsets offered comparatively high-end technical aspects at a nominal cost, thus making them value-for-money devices.

Now, the Taiwan-based company is said to be looking at releasing high-end value-for-money tablets to complement the Zenfone 2 smartphones range.

According to a PhoneArena report, that in turn quotes a report published in AusDroid, the new ZenPad range of tablets will be officially showcased at the Computex 2015 which is slated to begin from 1 June at Chinese Taipei.

AusDroid believes that the ZenPad series of tablets will comprise two different variants incorporating 7in and 8in tablets with a screen having 4:3 aspect ratio.
