ASUS has officially unveiled the much rumored Padfone Infinity refresh with a beefed up hardware and new design. This hybrid between smartphone and a tablet has been partially successful in the industry, so it makes sense for ASUS to give it another go.
The Padfone Infinity will first launch in Taiwan as we reported last week, possibly followed by global markets. Some notable changes have been made to the hardware as the unit now comes with a Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.2 GHz and sells in 32 or 64GB storage variants with a microSD card slot. It packs the same 5 inch 1080p resolution display from its predecessor and also features 2GB of RAM.
The smartphone also sports a 13MP camera sensor on the back accompanied by a 2MP front camera and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. A 2,400 mAh battery is on board, which might not provide a great deal of backup considering the hardware it packs.
The Padfone Station tablet will pack a 10.1 inch 1920×1200 resolution display as well as a 5,000 mAh battery. It also comes with a speaker which can output sound from the smartphone when attached. The Padfone Infinity will cost NT $18,990 ($641) and NT $20,990 ($708) for the 16 and 32GB variants respectively. The Padfone Station however will cost NT $7,000 or $236.
