ASUS Padfone Mini image renders have made their way online, thanks to famous tipster @evleaks. Rumors of the device have been circulating for the past couple of months, but so far no detailed renders have been posted, prior to these ones that @evleaks uploaded.
The images show the 4.3-inch smartphone as well as its 7-inch tablet dock. Both the front and rear sides of the device are pictured, making it clear how the handset slides right into a slot on the tablet in a portrait orientation.
The leaked renders do not include any specifications, but earlier rumors have suggested that the smartphone of the ASUS Padfone Mini will have a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. Meanwhile, the tablet will pack a display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Internally, the ASUS Padfone Mini is believed to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
The images give consumers a preview of the device which is set to be unveiled on December 11th in Taiwan. Earlier, it had been rumored that ASUS will reveal the device in January, but the company apparently has sent invitations to the media for an earlier launch.
Meanwhile, there is no word about whether the ASUS Padfone Mini will make it to the United States. However, it would probably be best not to expect too much, as ASUS has not made any of the devices in its Padfone product line available globally. That said, ASUS may choose to do things differently this time, especially given that companies left and right have been releasing mini smartphones. Making the ASUS Padfone Mini available on a global scale may just be what the manufacturer needs to compete more effectively in international market.
