We first saw the ASUS PadFone Infinity at Mobile World Congress (MWC) back in February. At that time, the device was listed as model A80, and it was powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600. Some new pictures are showing what looks to be an updated ASUS PadFone Infinity handset that could be released as soon as September (aka next month)...

Looks like they have added a MicroSD card slot on the left side of the phone, right next to the MicroSIM car slot. Expanded memory? Yes!!!

I just hope they announce a lot of stuff at IFA Berlin and steal the show.

This is a start of a new trend with micro updates in hardware within the model life cycle. Its good and bad for both manufacturer and customer.

But Cash is King! So keep it coming!!

Asus phones are too expensive and they are even not well distributed.

Did anyone notice the atrocious icon for the messaging app on the right in picture 1?

whatever, that will soon be replaced by Whatsapp, Hangouts, Viber... or your favorite messaging app...

I agree the icon its ugly... but the phone itself is awesome... but too expensive and no America support

Why do phone makers think bigger is better?

Just so everyone knows, Asus will have phones on US networks in the first quarter of 2014.

If anyone thinks its expensive (its a flagship phone) and that is with a tablet dock: 10in screen + battery.

Also Asus is one of the best on updates and innovation, so yeah can't wait!
