Well look at what we have here. After much teasing, ASUS has finally launched the latest iteration of the phone/tablet device that goes by the name of PadFone Infinity. Is it a worthy successor to the PadFone 2? Find out after the break.
ASUS’ new brainchild boasts a better hardware configuration than its predecessor which includes a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 GPU. The handset’s display also received an upgrade which now has 5-inch 1080p IPS display and is paired to 10.1-inch tablet dock with a slightly better resolution at 1920×1200.
The PadFone Infinity’s main camera has a resolution of 13-megapixel with an aperture of f2.0 which is coupled with a 2MP in the front. To further increase it imaging capabilities, especially in lowlight conditions, ASUS also equipped the device with a dedicated image sensor.

The ASUS PadFone Infinity is expected to hit the market this April and will consumers back €999 or little over fifty four grand in our local currency. From the looks of it, it seems that the new device is worthy successor, but we think that its steep asking price may hinder some potential buyers from getting it and would opt for the PadFone 2.
