New ASUS PadFone Infinity To Launch On Sept. 17

Asus finally confirmed the rumors today, unveiling a Web site and short YouTube video to promote the updated PadFone Infinity. The refreshed smartphone-tablet hybrid will launch next week on Sept. 17 at a special event hosted by CEO Jerry Shen in Taipei.

We already have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the new device. The updated PadFone will likely boast a Snapdragon 800 processor, a microSD slot, a noise canceling microphone, and come in black and white models. The Padfone Infinity is expected to sport a full-HD display with 1080x1920 pixels resolution; however there is no word about the size of the display, yet. The tablet is codenamed PadFone T004 and runs on Android 4.2.2. The device is likely to include expandable storage and a noise-cancelling microphone.

The refreshed A86 model offers the same dimensions and design as the current A80, and will likely fit right into its accompanying tablet. Asus continues to roll out new versions of the PadFone, a smartphone that can power up a special Android slate by sliding into a slot in the back.

It’s also mentioned the price may fall, which probably isn’t a bad thing, as you’ll pay 1000 euros (that’s $1325) for one at the moment. Asus justifies the price by saying it’s less than buying an equivalent phone and tablet separately, but in these days of Nexus 7/Nexus 4 match ups, it’s tough to swallow.

However, before getting too excited, as the event is being held in Taipei, it could indicate we’ll have to wait for the new Padfone Infinity’s release outside of the region. It could also be the reason it didn’t include the new device in its IFA 2013 line-up.
