Asus PadFone 2 specs leak - Snapdragon S4 Pro, 4.7-inch HD screen, 13MP camera
Only hours since we learned that the Asus PadFone 2 will be announced on October 16, the device's specifications have already been leaked on the internet. Spotted on a Chinese forum thread was a photo of what is said to be the retail box of the smartphone/tablet hybrid, designated with the A68 model name. Note that the device itself isn't visible, yet since the first PadFone was known internally as the A66, then what we are looking at might indeed be the list of PadFone 2 specifications.

Without further ado, here is what is written on the packaging: a Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core SoC running at 1.5GHz is where the Asus PadFone 2 will get its processing power from. Add the 2GB of RAM into the equation and it becomes clear that the device will be positioned in the same category with other makers' high-end Androids.

The Super IPS+ LCD screen measures 4.7 inches in diagonal, shines with the impressive 700 nits of brightness, and has a resolution of 1280 of 720 pixels. There is a 13-megapixel camera on the smartphone's back and a 1.2-megapixel one on its front for video chats. Connectivity-wise, the PadFone 2 supports both LTE and HSPA+. All these goodies, along with a 2,140mAh battery, are tucked away inside a 135-gram body that is 9 millimeters thick. 

There aren't any details given as to how big the "tablet" part of the Asus PadFone 2 is, but we will know the answer to that in less than a month's time. In the meantime, check out our Asus PadFone review in case you're wondering how practical a blend between a smartphone and a tablet could be.

Based on the previous Padfone, it still within a "reasonable" price considering the end users get a hybrid of smartphone and tablet. I hope there is something better - a lapdock or whatever it is called. Did Motorola patented the lapdock? Both are the way of the future. Both are my dreams. And this is my ultimate geeky dream -http://www.indiegogo.com/nexphone

Man all of these monster phones coming out seem to make the Razr HD less significant. Optimus G, HTC 5" monster, Galaxay note 2, Lumia 920.

Yeah...i really thought this would happen. The razr looks nice but I really wondered from the get go why the razr wasnt packing a stronger processor. The specs are more comparable to the the spring/summer models. (one x, s3, atrix hd)

Who knows, maybe Google is being a little to modest on the hardware front to make it not seem like they are picking favorites...... I don't know.

i know, it's a shame. it still might be worth it for the build quality and the battery life for some people though.

I think it could be a fake, mistake or whatever... but It could also mean, Super IPS on the Tablet dock and Amoled on the Phone.

This is some serious awesomeness. Put a full hd on the tablet screen and keep all under 900$ and you'll make the greatest thing ever, Asus.

I've had the original for 2+ months and I love the concept. Just hoping Asus will keep a sub 4.5" version in their PadFone catalogue. IMHO Asus is at the moment #1 manufacturer of high end Android devices in all categories.
