Asus shows off PadFone Infinity

Second phone-to-tablet transformer set for April 2013 launch and £800 price tag

ASUS has unveiled the PadFone Infinity at Mobile World Congress.

The five-inch LTE smartphone is the second device to join the PadFone range. It becomes a 10.1-inch tablet when connected to the Infinity Station dock.

It comes with Android 4.2, and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 1.7GHz processor. Its five-inch screen features a 1920x1080 full HD display with 441 pixels per square inch. According to ASUS, its battery delivers 19 hours of 3G talk-time, increasing up to 40 hours when docked.

On the storage side, it comes with 64GB of internal memory. It also offers speeds of 100Mbit/s for LTE and 42Mbit/s on DC-HSPA+.

The Padfone also comes with a 13-megapixel camera. It features an f/2.0 five-element lens that ASUS claims enables it to take incredibly detailed pictures with no shutter lag. It also features a dedicated signal processor for low-light photography, as well as capturing up to 100 photos at eight frames per second, while recording 1080p full HD video at the same time.

While the PadFone concept has been around for a while, the latest version ups the resolution of the tablet experience.

According to ASUS, the PadFone Infinity will launch April 2013 in the UK at the earliest, and cost £800.
