MWC 2013: Improved screens and Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset


During its keynote at MWC 2013 in Barcelona, Asus unveiled its latest Padfone smartphone/tablet dock device, the Padfone Infinity.

The main device is the actual smartphone built around a 5-inch 1080p Super IPS+ touchscreen with 441ppi, so it can proudly stand neck to neck with any competitor. The tablet dock is also improved and now features a 10.1-inch IPS 1920x1200 screen. The heart of the smartphone is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 chipset with quad-core Krait CPU clocked at 1.7GHz, Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM.

The rest of the features include a 13-megapixel main snapper capable of recording 1080p@30fps and a 2-megapixel front camera for video calls. The smartphone features a brushed aluminum unibody design while the dock is made out some sort of plastic back, at least as far as we could tell from the press shots. The connectivity side features all the usual 802.11abgnac WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC (integrated in the smartphone) as well as 100Mbps LTE.

The tablet dock also comes with its own 5,000mAh battery while the smartphone is powered by a decent 2,400mAh one. Of course, the tablet dock has some extra connections and features an improved loudspeaker that uses Asus' 3rd generation Sonic Master audio enhancing technology. According to Asus, there will be a 32 and 64GB version of the Padfone Infinity.

Unfortunately, the Padfone Infinity will not be available in the US of A, but it is expected to show up in Europe as of April with a price set at €999/£799, tablet dock included.
