Asus Padfone 2 launch on October 16

Asus has just set the launch date of the Padfone 2 on October 16, 2012. The event will be held simultaneously in Taiwan and Italy on the same day.

We’ve previously leaked some detailed information about the hardware configuration of the Asus Padfone 2.

Here’s what we know so far.

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series

Asus Padfone 2 specs (based on leaked info):
4.7-inch Super AMOLED display @ 720p
Qualcomm SnapDragon S4 Pro APQ8064 1.5GHz quad-core
Adreno 320 GPU
at least 16GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0
HSPA+ 42Mbps / LTE 100Mbps
GPS w/ aGPS support
Android 4.1 Jellybean

The invite to the official announcement of the Padfone 2 shows a glimpse of the Asus smartphone which looks pretty much the same as the old one.

We update once we get more information nearing the launch date. We noted before that Asus’ original plan was to announce the Padfone 2 next year (February 2013) at the GSM World in Barcelona, Spain. This new development is a surprise which makes us wonder why.

    This will definitely be expensive because it will come with the laptop dock (lapdock?) or maybe a tablet or it could be both.

    ^its not the same

    1gb DDR2 RAM, 4.7″ Super AMOLED HD, Bluetooth 4.0 with HSPA+42/LTE100 mbps

    oh and yes IT TURNS INTO A 10.1″ Tablet

    so to say just a higher cpu and memcard slot is carelessly uninformed

    Same as a Galaxy Nexus i9250. Same interface. Just a higher processor and with memory card slot..
