We have seen some leaked benchmarks of the Asus Padfone 2 last month, where other rumors point towards a highly possible October 16th release date for said device. Well, the leaked benchmarks do point towards the possibility of a quad-core Qualcomm S4 quad-core APQ8064 processor that is accompanied by an Adreno 320 GPU which does all the heavy lifting where graphics are concerned, in addition to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the operating system of choice right out of the box. The thing is, none of those are verified, they are just most likely to happen. Well, the Global Certification Forum has already approved of the Asus Padfone 2, where we now know that it will come with European, Asian and Latin American LTE connectivity on bands 3, 7 and 20. Not only that, consumers can also expect to see GCF approval for U.S. LTE bands in due time.

The thing is, will the ASus Padfone 2 idea actually take off the ground when it is plugged into a dock to be transformed into a mobile computer of sorts? Only time will tell, and it might just hit the very same brick wall that the Webtop from Motorola did eventually.
