Its 10-inch display boasts a 1280×800 resolution, and it has two cameras — a 5-megapixel camera on its back, and a 1.2-megapixel camera on its front.

Other features include Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, SRS audio technology, and a battery that promises up to 8.5 hours of runtime. The MeMO Pad Smart measures 263 x 180.8 x 9.9mm, weighs 580 grams, and comes in three colors: white, blue, and pink.

In the U.S., the device is expected to sell for $299, and it’ll be available alongside an official Asus keyboard case called the Folio Key.
