Asus announces PadFone Infinity: 5-inch 1080p phone that docks into a 10.1-inch 1080p tablet
Asus has just announced its next iteration of the PadFone, the PadFone Infinity. The device’s announcement was leaked earlier today. Following in its predecessor’s footsteps, the PadFone Infinity is an Android smartphone that docks into a large display to transform itself into a tablet. The “Fone” on the Infinity sports a 5-inch 1080p display, LTE connectivity, 64GB of storage, and a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor. Asus has made sure that users have nothing to complain about the specs. The “Pad” side of the Infinity, dubbed as the “Infinity Station,” features a 10.1-inch 1080p display as well as another battery to juice its display and ramp up the battery life.
One of the cool features Asus is boasting about the Infinity is the ability to capture up to 100 sequential images at 8 frames-per-second while simultaneously recording a 1080p Full HD video. The PadFone Infinity features a 13 MP sensor paired with an f/2.0 5-element lens, coupled with a dedicated imaging processor that allows for insane imaging capabilities, such as the sequential image capture being being talked about.
Only the UK pricing has been announced so far and it’s priced very highly. The Asus PadFone Infinity and the “Infinity Station” will cost £799 (or €999) — that’s somewhere between $1200 and $1400 — when it launches. It would amount to around 60,000 rupees when it launches in India, a crazy price for a crazy gadget.
