As expected, Asus today launched its new PadFone Infinity in Taipei. The new variant is an improvement over the original one launched earlier this year. Just a few months after the announcement, Asus has changed a few things to make the unique smartphone with a tablet jacket device.
The biggest change in the new version is it is now powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz. This should give the device enough processing chops for most functions either in smartphone or tablet mode when compared to the Snapdragon 600 variant.
Asus has also added a microSD card slot and has lowered the internal storage to 16GB and 32GB variants. This should be expected with the addition of a microSD card slot.
The third change is the design with a new diamond cut pattern on the back and new ‘Titanium Black’ and ‘Platinum White’ colors. There is no word about its India launch or pricing at the moment.
