Asus unveiled their new PadFone Infinity today in their Taipei press event. The phone comes with several improvements over its predecessor, the most prominent being the quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC, clocking in at 2.2 GHz and 2 GB of DDR3 RAM, giving it a performance boost. The phone comes in variants with 16 / 32 GB of  internal storage, and will also pack a microSD card slot. The phone will come equipped with a 5-inch HD Super IPS 1920×1080 display, and will host a 2400 mAh battery.

Two other stand out features are the design and the camera. In terms of design, the phone now comes with a diamond cut metallic backside, giving the device a more solid and premium feel. The software also got an upgrade, to an Android 4.2 base and improved UI in terms of simpler icons and for the built-in Android Apps.

The PadFone Infinity comes with a 13 MP f/2.0 rear shooter, and a 2 MP front-facing camera. The intrigue here arises from the camera app, which Asus has updated to include its new PixelMaster, which combines multiple pixels to form a clearer 3 MP image. We’ve already seen this oversampling technique used by Nokia in the Lumia 1020‘s PureView camera.

The device comes fully equipped with WiFI, NFC, and the works. It will come in 2 colors, ‘Titanium Black’, and ‘Platinum White’. The phone will be priced at around $640 without contract, and $240 for the dock. It will be interesting to see how the camera techniques employed here stack up against Nokia’s dedicated camera phone.
