AT&T shares ASUS PadFone X specs (but no word on release date)
Back at the CES in early January, ASUS announced the upcoming PadFone X for AT&T. Like PadFones before it, this would be a combination smartphone/tablet dock setup, this time with a five-inch phone and a nine-inch tablet, both full HD. While we got that display info, some general talk about a large battery, and confirmation of LTE-Advanced support, ASUS still hadn’t revealed a lot of detail about this hardware. A couple weeks back we saw AT&T teasing the PadFone X, but it had no new hardware info to share, nor did it reveal anything about when sales might begin; would we ever make any headway with guy? Well, the release date still eludes us, but tonight we finally start filling in those hardware blanks, as AT&T shares the specs for the PadFone X.
Here’s what we’re looking at: the handset will run a Snapdragon 800, offer 2GB of RAM, and have 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD). It’s got a 13MP main camera (2MP front-facer), measures 9.98mm thick (can we not just call it 10?), and packs a 2300mAh battery.
The tablet dock (or PadFone Station, to use the parlance of our times) measures 11.63mm thick, offers a 4990mAh battery (and again, could we not just bump that up to an even 5000?), and has its own 1MP front-facer. We also learn that the display is not 1080p as implied by ASUS, but 1920 x 1200, instead. Really, that makes sense, since the same resolution was used for the tablet side of the PadFone Infinity. In fact, this whole package sounds a lot like Infinity, but that has a Snapdragon 600 and a larger tablet display.
So what’s it going to be, AT&T? Are you ever going to start selling the PadFone X, or what?
