Asus PadFone X

It’s not often a carrier teases a smartphone for months on end without dropping a hint on its pricing or release dates, or without publishing the full list of specs, but that’s exactly what AT&T has done with the ASUS PadFone X. Confirmed to be headed to AT&T back in January, we’ve been waiting on details on the hardware of ASUS’ latest smartphone-cum-tablet device, and now, as we head into April, the carrier has finally decided to oblige by publishing its detailed specs.

The PadFone X will sport a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, 16GB of expandable internal storage, support for AT&T’s LTE-Advanced network, and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. The phone’s display will be a 5-inch Full HD unit, while the tablet companion sports a 9-inch display of the same resolution, while also toting a dedicated 1-megapixel front-facing camera. Both phone and tablet have their own batteries – a 2,300 mAh unit for the former, and a 4,990 mAh unit for the latter.

Unfortunately, a release date and pricing details are still missing. The PadFone X is expected to launch sometime in Q2 this year, and considering AT&T has officially announced hardware details of the device, it shouldn’t be long before we find out exactly when consumers will be able to get their hands on the hybrid smartphone.
