The ASUS PadFone is one of those ideas that, while certainly innovative, may just be a bit too “out there” to catch-on commercially. Certainly, the first PadFone failed to make a big splash, but that could have been for any number of reasons; the tablet hybrid cost a bit more than users wanted to pay for a smartphone that wasn’t from the likes of Samsung or HTC, and the model’s launch didn’t have the promotional muscle to get it widely noticed. Maybe the second time will be the charm? Some benchmark figures have surfaced that paint the picture of a PadFone 2 with what looks to be quite the powerful processor.

While the first PadFone’s dual-core Snapdragon S4 was certainly no slouch, and the reviews were generally satisfied with its performance (when used as a phone, anyway), the PadFone 2 should kick things up a notch with the inclusion of a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro. The AnTuTu benchmark figures show a device that’s generally on-par with some of the Exynos 4 Quad figures we’ve seen, though as shouldn’t be a surprise, some specific scores are lower, with others higher.

There’s already some speculation about the rest of the tablet’s hardware, like a possible 2GB of RAM, but for now all we have are these benchmark results. With any luck, we might get a real look at the PadFone 2 in early 2013.
