The last we heard of the Padfone was quite awhile ago, with ASUS announcing that it would be delayed because they wanted to load it up with Android Ice Cream Sandwich. But it looks like they’ve already started working on the phone-tablet combo. According to reports, the folks over at Notebook Italia spotted the phone’s results on a list of OpenGL benchmark results. In addition to the phone’s benchmark results, some additional details about the device were revealed.
The results showed that the Padfone packs a qHD resolution (960 x 540) so there’s no 720p display for this phone, and it is running on a Qualcomm MSM8960 processor (Snapdragon S4) with a max speed of 918MHz – which means the quad-core processor should be clocked at 1GHz. While the phone was being tested with Android Gingerbread (2.3.5), it is a pre-production unit, and we should expect it to be packing Ice Cream Sandwich at its release. Anybody keen on picking up this tablet-phone combination when it’s released?
