The phone packs 2 GB of RAM, however, there is no word on internal memory. The device rocks a HSPA+ radio which is capable of reaching speeds up to 42Mbit/s.
The handset is equipped a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera in addition to its 8-megapixel main shooter. The Asus FonePad Note also boasts a dual front speakers much like the one used in the HTC One. The phablet is bundled with a stylus to make writing easier and more accurate.
The device runs Android, though it is unclear whether it is the latest version. It will also come pre-loaded with software solutions that takes advantage of the stylus.
