Brand new Asus Padfone Infinity unleashed!
Asus first revealed its incredible PadFone Infinity on stage during Mobile World Congress back in February, but now the Taiwanese tech maker has given its phone-tablet combo device an upgrade under the hood to make it even faster than before. Read on for all the details!
While the Asus PadFone Infinity has been on sale for only a few short months, the company’s already given the gadget duo an upgrade with some extra speedy hardware under the bonnet. The main addition to the all-new PadFone Infinity is the super-speedy 2.2GHz quad-core processor, while there’s also the addition of a microSD slot that will let you bump up your storage options to suit your needs. Asus has also lowered the internal storage options down to 16GB and 32GB variants, thanks to the inclusion of the microSD slot, while you’ll be able to pick up the new model in either black or white. The new PadFone is also based on Android 4.2 out of the box instead of 4.1, so there’s bound to be a few faster tweaks across the board.
Aside from the processor upgrade, Asus has put a lot of emphasis into the camera on its latest model – and while it’s the same 13-megapixel snapper from the previous model, the camera app itself has been given a few tweaks to take even better shots than before. The new app has gained a feature called PixelMaster, which combines multiple pixels to form a smaller, but sharper image – and there’s a new turbo mode burst setting which can capture up to 25 frames per second. It’s also set to support various LTE bands, which means you’ll be able to hop onto a super-fast 4G connection and beam down your favourite goods at top-notch speeds.
If you’re after the updated Asus PadFone Infinity, it hits shelves in Taiwan first for $640 (£403) for the 16GB model, while the 32GB version will cost you $710 (£446). There’s currently no word on a UK release date, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we find out.
