Asus mobile and tablet is constantly evolving despite the decreasing demand for such device. A testament to this is the upcoming mysterious 9.6-inch tablet spotted on benchmarking service GFXBench.

The highlight of this unidentified ASUS tablet is that it features a dodeca-core processor, made by MediaTek. This does not really surprise us, coming from the makers of the deca-core Helio line of chipsets. The mysterious 12-core chipset registers as the MT8173, but that model was announced as a quad-core chipset. The other specs line up, including the impressive PowerVR Rogue GX6250 graphics chip, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

Other features of the device also include a decent 7MP rear-facing camera and a 4.7MP front-facing camera. Thus, suggesting a better image capturing as compared to its predecessors. Furthermore, the highly cited 9.6-inch display will come with a 2048 x 1536 resolution.

Its value would be somewhere in the $300 to $400 price point. Given the projected price range, it could pose as a potential rival to Apple iPad Air 2 at $399.
