Asus PadFone Infinity Official Specs: 2.2 GHz Quad-Core CPU, 5-Inch Display

We reported last week on Asus’ plans to unveil its next PadFone Infinity phone/tablet combo and it looks like the company has just made it official.

As previous rumors suggested, Asus PadFone Infinity is equipped with a powerful 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB LPDDR3 of RAM. In comparison, the original model is powered by a slightly less powerful 1.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, which is complemented by 2GB LPDDR2 of RAM. Another difference between the two smartphones is the fact that the new PadFone Infinity will ship with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box, while the original version still runs Android 4.1.2. Even though both Asus PadFone Infinity devices boast 13-megapixel rear-facing cameras, Engadget reports that the newer model comes pre-installed with a new PixelMaster feature, which is said to combine multiple pixels in order to form a smaller but much sharper and cleaner 3-megapixel image.

This sounds similar to Nokia’s PureView technology, but the Finish company offers a more advanced technology than Asus, at least for the moment. The new PadFone Infinity comes with microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 64GB), something that the original model lacked. Asus PadFone Infinity sports a clear and crisp 5-inch Super IPS capacitive touchscreen display that supports full HD (1080 x 1920 pixels) resolution, which is similar to the one that’s been embedded into the original model. Other highlights of the recently announced PadFone Infinity include 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, NFC (Near Field Communication), LTE support and 2400 mAh Li-Ion battery.

According to Asus, PadFone Infinity will be available in Titanium Black and Platinum White for no less than $640 (€480) for the 16GB model and $710 (€530) for the 32GB variant. Unfortunately, there’s no word on availability yet, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
