The ASUS PadFone Infinity was announced earlier this year at the Mobile World Congress 2013. It is a redesigned and upgraded version of PadFone 2. The company hasn’t officially released this smartphone in the U.S., even though it is available for purchase here through unofficial channels. Recently benchmarks of an unreleased ASUS PadFone Infinity A86 were spotted which hinted at the possibility of a Snapdragon 800 powered model. It is believed that the company has delayed PadFone Infinity U.S. release to launch the Snapdragon 800 version instead. Today, the new PadFone Infinity has been pictured, it looks identical to the current one, except that it comes in white as well.
The A86 is said to be compatible with the current PadFone Infinity’s base. There is also chatter of a microSD slot through which customers will be able to externally expand memory, something that’s not possible on the device right now. ASUS hasn’t revealed as yet when it will release the new PadFone Infinity, it is expected to make the announcement at IFA 2013, which takes place in the first week of September. This device is rumored to release in Taiwan in the third week of September, no details as yet on when it will be released in the West. [Image via ePrice]
