ASUS Padfone is currently going for £689.99 at UK currently.
The Asus Padfone 2, which is going to be unveiled on October 16th, will have a mouthwatering spec sheet if a report of Mobile01 is to be believed.
Some details of the PadFone 2 have already been leaked in a benchmark that revealed that it would come with a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 APQ8064 processor with Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS.
If the leak is to be believed, the Padfone 2 will be sporting a 4.7-inch 1280x720p HD display although the box confusingly says both Super AMOLED and IPS+, but it can’t be both. Then the brand new quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro will be under the hood, along with 2GB of RAM, and an impressive 13 megapixel camera. Sounds like the LG Optimus G if you ask us. The specs however, are all about the phone and not the accompanying tablet.
Other specs include a HSPA+ model, 4G LTE (in select regions) and a decently sized 2,140 mAh battery for the smartphone. It’s also being listed as just 9mm thin, so it should be a bit lighter and thinner than the original Padfone. Either way we’ll learn all the details on October 16th in Milan and Taipei as ASUS unveils the new Padfone 2.
No mention of the Asus Padfone 2 tablet size, but we imagine it’ll be 10.1in again. Nor are we told which version of Android to expect, though Asus has a pretty decent rep, so we’d bet on Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) at this stage
