|ASUS Fonepad 7 (FE171CG): Specs, Price and Availability|
Alongside the Fonepad 8, ASUS Philippines also launched the new ASUS Fonepad 7 (FE171CG), a 7-inch phablet with full 3G and dual SIM phone functionality. It features an all-new design that is thinner and lighter than the previous Fonepad 7 (FE170CG), and fits comfortably in one hand for increased ease of use and maximum mobility.
Thin and lightweight design
Fonepad 7 is available in a choice of Black, White, Gold, and Red colors, each with a unique texture that enhances Fonepad 7’s style and makes it easier to grip. The display is framed by a beautiful metallic band finished with non-conductive vacuum metallization (NCVM) technology for an additional stylish accent.
5MP PixelMaster camera
The new ASUS Fonepad 7 comes equipped with an 5MP rear-facing auto-focus camera for incredibly rich, detailed photos of life’s memorable events. It has a large f/2.4 aperture lens for increased camera performance in a variety of lighting conditions and is the first ASUS phablet to incorporate a blue-glass optical filter to reduce light scattering and flare for capturing brilliant photos with accurate color.
Fonepad 7 is also the first ASUS phablet to feature Low Light mode, an ASUS-exclusive PixelMaster camera technology that significantly increases camera performance in poorly lit scenes. By merging adjacent pixels, the camera increases light sensitivity by up to 400%, resulting in clear and bright photos and videos without the need for flash.
In addition to the 5MP rear-facing camera, Fonepad 7 also has a 2MP front-facing camera that’s perfect for making video calls with family and friends.
Beautiful IPS display with ASUS TruVivid technology
The ASUS Fonepad 7 experience centers on its 7-inch IPS display that provides accurate color reproduction and enhanced saturation for unparalleled picture quality, as well as a wide 178-degree viewing angle that makes it easy for users to share onscreen content with other people nearby. ASUS TruVivid, a full lamination display technology that reduces thickness and weight, and provides higher optical transparency than traditional touchscreen displays, delivers brighter, more vivid colors to make movies, photos, and apps look their best.
