ASUS has an entire lineup of tablet and smartphone hybrids that it calls the PadFone. Just last month two additions were made to the lineup, the PadFone Mini and the PadFone E. Today yet another model has been launched which sticks to the core philosophy of merging together a smartphone and a tablet, while allowing users to separate the two whenever they want. The PadFone Infinity Lite has been launched today, and it builds up on its predecessor, the PadFone Infinity 2, which was launched in the second half of 2013.
The biggest difference between these two models is that the Infinity 2 touted a much more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quadcore processor, whereas the PadFone Infinity Lite launched today has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quadcore processor clocked at 1.7Ghz. The smartphone has a 5 inch 1,080×1,920 pixel resolution display with 2GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage, 13 megapixel rear camera and a 2,400mAh battery. Tablet has a 10.1 inch 1,920×1,080 pixel resolution display and an additional 5,000mAh battery. The entire contraption runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, though its possible that it may be updated to Android 4.4 KitKat in the near future. ASUS hasn’t said when the PadFone Infinity Lite will be released globally, it will initially be available for purchase in Taiwan next month.
