Asus has taken the wraps off its latest phone-tablet hybrid, the Padfone Infinity. It’s easily the company’s most ambitious tandem to date: both the 5-inch phone and 10-inch tablet feature full 1080p HD displays, for a PPI count of 441 on the phone and 218 on the tablet.
Like the Padfone 2, there’s a quad-core processor under the hood. Once again, Asus has opted for a Qualcomm chip. It’s a Snapdragon 600 with Adreno 320 graphics clocked at 1.7GHz, and it should provide a substantial performance boost over the last-generation model despite only being clocked 200MHz faster. As you’d expect from a premium Android smartphone in 2013, the Padfone Infinity also has 2GB of RAM.
The base model includes 32GB of internal storage and a 64GB model is also available. Other items rounding out the spec sheet include a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 2MP webcam, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 support, as well as GPS and GLONASS. The phone features a generous 2400mAh battery that’s rated for about 19 hours of use — while the additional pack inside the tablet dock more than doubles that run time. Just about every wireless network under the sun is supported (including HSPA+ and LTE), but you’ll need to have a shiny, new nano-SIM in your possession to use the Padfone Infinity.
