Asus lifts cover off Padfone Infinity: 5-inch 1080p phone docks into 10-inch 1200p tablet
Asus has been teasing a new generation of its Padfone for MWC, and sure enough it has just become official: the Asus Padfone Infinity, a device coming in two parts, a 5-inch, 1080p 4G LTE phone that docks into a 10.1-inch tablet with a 1080p display.

The new Padfone Infinity comes with a sleek aluminum alloy body with brushed metal finish. Under the hood, a quad-core 1.7GHz Quadlcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with Adreno 320 graphics and 2GB of RAM power the experience.

The 5-inch Padfone Infinity features a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony BSI sensor and wide f/2.0 aperture for better low-light performance. The camera unit consists of 5-elements and features a single LED flash. On the front, there is a 2-megapixel snapper.

Designwise, you get a phone that measures 8.9mm at its thickest but goes down to 6.3mm at its slimmest point. Inside, there is a 2,400mAh non-removable battery. Good news is the Padfone Infinity launches with the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box.

The Padfone Infinity Station on the other hand, the 10-inch tablet chassis, has a 1,920 x 1,200-pixel resolution and packs a 5,000mAh battery. It is powered completely by the 5-inch phone that docks in it, so it does not have a standalone processor. It does however feature a 1-megapixel front camera. The station is 10.7mm thick and weighs 530g.

The Padfone Infinity phone cum tablet combo will come in 32GB or 64GB versions with a nano-SIM card slot. We don’t have the exact release date just yet but price should be around £799 ($1,200) in the UK.
