AT&T teases the Asus PadFone X, still no word on its release date

It was back in January when AT&T announced it would sell the Asus PadFone X later this year. Since then, the carrier has been quiet about the new device. However, today AT&T took to Twitter to remind us that the “Asus PadFone X is a 5-inch FHD smartphone that transforms into a 9-inch FHD tablet”, and to ask “how would you use a larger screen?” The text is accompanied by the image seen above.

We can only assume that this means the new smartphone-tablet hybrid will be released in the near future. AT&T has yet to reveal how much it’s going to ask for the PadFone X. At the moment, the PadFone X page found at AT&T’s website only says that the device is “coming soon.”

Running Android 4.4 KitKat, the Asus PadFone X features LTE-A connectivity and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM-8974 processor. More details should be unveiled pretty soon.
