With ASUS ready to announce the Padfone 2 on October 16th, it was only a matter of time before the leaks started rolling in. Here we have what is said to be a snapshot of the back of the Padfone 2′s retail packaging, complete with a rundown of the hardware powering the brains of the phone that can in turn power a tablet. Just as previously rumored, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor is insider, running at a 1.5GHz clip. Also featured is a 12MP camera, 2GB RAM, and a 4.7-inch Super IPS+ HD display.
All is wrapped into a frame that measures in at 9mm thick while still packing a 2140mAh battery. The specs are pretty impressive on paper, and the multi-funtionality that will presumably get the same tablet and laptop docking options as its predecessor make it a pretty complete device that should be able to compete head-to-head with the most powerful handsets on the market. Now let’s see if ASUS can take advantage of its unique positioning.
