During Computex 2016 Asus revealed a number of new devices, amongst them, was a brand new line of Transformer devices, the Transformer 3, Transformer 3 Pro and the Transformer Mini.
The Transformer 3 is a new 2-in-1 solution that has been designed to easily transform between a laptop and tablet, it measures just 6.9mm thin and features a giant 12.6-inch display with a 2,880 x 1,920-pixel resolution.
The display also has a pixel count of 275 ppi and a brightness of 350 nits, and comes with support for Asus’ Tru2Life technology, which is said to enhance the tablet’s overall sharpness and contrast.
Inside you can chose a seven-generation Intel Core processor with up to 512GB of SSD storage, with a memory that is clocked at 1,866MHz.
The Transformer 3 also has a 13MP camera on the back, with a built-in kickstand that allows it to be adjusted between two positions.
It also has a battery that is said to last up to 9 hours, with support for Windows Hello and a total of four speakers in-built that is said to be 3.5 times louder than past models due to SmartAmp technology.
There’s also an included Transformer Sleeve keyboard that features a full-size, backlit keyboard and a glass-based touchpad.
The Transformer 3 is available now in Stone, Charcoal, Taupe and Amber for $800.
If the normal Transformer 3 model doesn’t take your fancy then you might take a liking to the Transformer 3 Pro, which is a more feature-full version of the 2-in-1, and because of that, it does measure a slightly wider 8.5mm, but does also have some more features to warrant that.
This Pro model features a built-in adjustable metal kickstand with a “stepless” hinge for adjusting the screen to any angle, alongside Harmon Kardon certified speakers, a full-size HDMI port, a dual 4K display output, and support for Thunderbolt 3 over a USB Type-C port.
The Transformer 3 Pro also supports up to an Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16GB of RAM at 2,133MHz and up to 1TB PCIe x4 SSD storage.
Finally, the Pro model has a 12.6-inch display with a 2,880 x 1,920-pixel resolution, with a pixel count of 275 and 170-degree viewing angles.
This model also features a front-facing camera, 13MP rear-facing camera and that same Cover Keyboard included. It will also support the ROG XG Station 2.
The Asus Transformer 3 Pro will be available in North America for $1,000.
On top of all that, Asus also unveiled the Transformer Mini during Computex.
According to Asus, it is the world’s lightest 2-in-1 PC, measuring just 8.2mm thin and weighing a tiny 1.17 pounds, or 1.74 pounds with the keyboard attached.
It features a 10.1-inch display with a brightness of 400 nits and support for Asus’ Tru2Life and TruVive technology. The Mini also features a built-in kickstand, with the same “stepless” Smart Hinge that you will find on the Pro model.
Asus say that it also features a battery that will last up to 11 hours from a single charge, with Wireless AC connectivity and a full USB port. It also has a detachable keyboard, with a built-in Instant ID fingerprint reader with support for Windows Hello.
The Asus Transformer Mini will be available in Quartz Grey and Pearl White, however, at the moment, that’s all we know about it.
