Asus just announced the Padfone Infinity in February of this year, but it looks like the company is already prepping a newer model. Talk of a Padfone Infinity packing a Snapdragon 800 SoC has been heating up over the last couple of weeks and it seems Asus is finally ready to let the cat out of the bag.
The company has reportedly sent out invitations to a Taipei event hosted by Asus CEO Jerry Shen and taking place next Tuesday. If that weren't enough to wet your whistle, Asus has also released a teaser video (below) that shows a phone that looks similar to the Padfone Infinity taking off like a rocket from behind an Asus-branded tablet. In addition to this invitation and video, there's also a webpage (opens in new tab) counting down to next Tuesday.
The original Padfone Infinity runs on Qualcomm's 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 SoC and packs 2 GB of RAM, an Adreno 320 GPU, a 5-inch 1080p display (with 441 ppi), a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 2-megapixel lens up front. The Padfone Infinity Station, meanwhile, houses a 1,920 x 1,200 pixel resolution and a 5,000 mAh battery and is powered by the phone.
Details on the updated model are thin on the ground (save for talk of a Snapdragon 800), and it's not clear if Asus plans to upgrade the Infinity Station, too. We'll keep you posted so stay tuned!
