Asus PadFone S is an international variant of the PadFone X, should be launched in July
Asus is getting ready to announce new products at Computex on June 2, and one of them might be the PadFone S. However, this isn’t a new device in the true sense of the word. It’s a non-US version of the Asus PadFone X, which was announced by AT&T back in January. Of course, as you may know, AT&T still hasn’t launched the PadFone X since then, despite the fact that it released several promo videos showing it.

The PadFone S seems to be identical to the PadFone X, thus comprising of a 5-inch, 1080p Android KitKat smartphone, and an 8.9-inch tablet dock (with a 1,200 x 1,920 pixel resolution). The smartphone features LTE, a 13MP rear camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2,300 mAh battery. The tablet dock provides an extra 4,990 mAH battery, dual speakers, and its own 1MP front-facing camera.

Reportedly, the Asus PadFone S will be available in Taiwan (and possibly in other markets) starting July. We’ll see if AT&T launches its PadFone X by then.
