Description

A 5" 1080x1920 pixels IPS-LCD display is on the ASUS PadFone Infinity 2, and a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 is running the show, aided by 2 GB of RAM, and backed by a 2400 mAh battery. The 13 MP f/2.0 aperture camera stays, but Asus is using what it calls PixelMaster technology to bin the information from four pixels together into one decked out 3 MP image, similar to Nokia's PureView Phase 1 technology. Storage gets shrunk to either 16 GB or 32 GB models, instead of 32 GB/64 GB of the original, but that's because you get a memory card slot for expansion now. The phone supports European/Asian networks mainly, with LTE 800/1800/2600 bands, and will arrive with Android 4.2.2 onboard in Titanium Black or Platinum White chassis colors.

  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 441 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

  • Positioning:

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
