Back in January, at CES 2013 tech fair, ASUS introduced the Padfone X, a smartphone/tablet hybrid that will go on sale at AT&T later this year. The Padfone X wasn’t available for public testing at the Las Vegas-based event and the company only revealed a part of its technical specifications.
Now, the folks at AT&T revealed the full ASUS Padfone X specs, but failed to mention when the device will become available for purchase. The US carrier didn’t mention anything about its price either.
The smartphone itself is 143.93 mm tall, 72.46 mm wide, 9.98 mm thin and weighs 150 grams, while running Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. Padfone X boasts about a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 resolution and 441 ppi pixel density, while the processing tasks are handled by Snapdragon 800 chipset with quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU and quad-core Adreno 330 GPU.
The Padfone X smartphone also comes with 13 MP Pixel Master primary camera, 2 MP user-facing camera, 16 GB of native storage, microSD card slot (up to 64 GB supported), and 2 GB of RAM. A 2,300 mAh battery it’s keeping the lights on.
Connectivity-wise the terminal arrives wtih WiFi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS/aGPS. Even though it’s not mentioned in AT&T’s press release we might also get NFC and microUSB 2.0.
As you may know the Padfone X smartphone can be docked into the Padfone Station that transforms it into a full-sized tablet. The Padfone Station measures 250.4 x 172.25 x 11.63 mm and weighs 514 grams, has a 1 MP user-facing camera, and 4,990 mAh battery (that also charges the smartphone).
