ASUS PadFone X seen in benchmark, may be released soon

PadFone_Infinity_Updated_2013

While the PadFone Infinity is set to be released in the US sometime in the near future and the new PadFone mini was just announced last week, it seems there’s a new PadFone being released by ASUS soon as well. It’s called the PadFone X, and it was recently spotted in AnTuTu’s benchmark database.

The PadFone X is supposedly the successor to the PadFone 2 which was released last year, and there are a number of things that we can tell from its appearance in the database. First of all, it will be running Android 4.4 and will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Not only that, it also has a 1200 x 1920 screen resolution, thought the size of the screen remains unknown. Other details include a rear-facing camera of at least 5MP, 2Gb of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory.

The device itself scored very high in the benchmark tests, but we still don’t know when it will be released. Will we see the PadFone X in the US? We certainly hope so!

Google may drop Asus for Nexus 7 2014, source claims

Google will be moving away from Asus for the next-generation of Nexus 7 tablet, says Digitimes source. After spending the last two years working together on the 7-inch tablet experience, Google may split from Asus and choose another vendor.

It’s unclear why Google might opt for a new partner but we’ll likely hear a number of reasons over the coming year. With the current model barely a few months old there is plenty of time to uncover the backstory.

If you’re like us, you reserve a bit of skepticism when it comes to Digitimes reports. Known to be inaccurate at times, the outlet was pretty spot-on in the months leading up for the current Nexus 7.

Asus to make the new Nexus 10 tablet, according to rumor

ASUS_Logo_From_MeMO_Pad_10

According to a tweet from @Rage06, which was then retweeted by famed leaker @evleaks with a comment saying “seems legit,” the new Nexus 10 will be made by Asus. @Rage06, or Ray, works at  Curry’s PC world in the UK and found a line in the system that suggests that the Nexus 10 will indeed be made by Asus instead of Samsung, the current manufacturer.

This tweet does go against Sunday Pichai’s statement earlier this year that said that Samsung would be the manufacturer. Regardless, hopefully we’ll hear the official details soon enough. With rumors going either way, it sure will be interesting to see the real manufacturer.

ASUS unveils updated PadFone Infinity in Taipei

PadFone_Infinity_Updated_2013

The updated PadFone Infinity is official folks. It gets a beefier processor in the Snapdragon 800 and a microSD slot. You will also find a secondary microphone for noise cancellation, a new diamond cut on the metallic backside, and some minor changes to the UI. The camera is the same (13MP and f/2.0 aperture), but there is a new feature called PixelMaster. It combines multiple pixels to form a 3MP image that promises to be sharper.

The phone itself still has the 5-inch 1080p IPS display along with a 2,400mAh battery. If you already own an existing PadFone Infinity tablet dock, you will still be able to use it with this new phone.

Since a microSD slot is on board for expanded storage, ASUS lowered the internal storage options to 16GB and 32GB. Pricing is going to be NT$18,990 ($640) off-contract, while the tablet dock will go for NT$7,000 ($240).

I would love to finally see one of these bad boys come to the U.S., but not sure which carrier would be keen to it.
