At CES in January this year, Asus revealed its latest "phone inside a tablet" hybrid dubbed the PadFone X. However, we were unable to do a hands-on because the prototype was enclosed in a glass. That left us wondering and hanging as to what Asus is brewing under the hood.
Thankfully, AT&T has released the exact hardware specifications of the device. Ryan Lee, AT&T's Senior Product Marketing Manager, detailed the technical specifications of the PadFone X. Lee said that the device is built for speed and longevity. He also posted a video that walks us through the design story of the PadFone X. You can check out the video after the break.
The PadFone X, being a phone-tablet duo, is essentially made up of two devices: the actual phone itself which is the PadFone, and the PadFone Station that acts like a tablet. The former features a 5-inch display with a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, while the latter has a 9-inch display that has a 1,920 X 1,200 resolution.
The precise dimension of the PadFone are 143.93 x 72.46 x 9.98 mm and it weighs 150 grams; while the PadFone Station has a 250.4 x 172.25 x 11.63 mm dimension and a 514g weight. Powering the device is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz. The PadFone also has a 13-megapixel camera on the back and a 1-megapixel camera on the front. The PadFone Station, meanwhile, has a decent 1-megapixel front-facing shooter.
Other features include a 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, microSD support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 2,300mAh battery on the PadFone, and a 4,990mAh battery on the PadFone Station. AT&T has yet to announce the pricing and availability of the PadFone X, so stay tuned.
