AT&T reveals hardware specs for upcoming ASUS PadFone X smartphone/tablet

ASUS PadFone X tablet dock

AT&T is on a roll. After announcing earlier today that the Galaxy Note 3 was being treated to KitKat, the 2nd largest carrier in the US is back and divulging some important info about their upcoming smartphone/tablet hybrid — the recently announced ASUS Padfone X.

It was all the way back in January AT&T first announced that they’d be carrying the ASUS Padfone X later this year. The problem is, they were mum on many of the hardware details, leaving us to wonder what kind of changes in hardware (if any) the PadFone X would receive that would separate it from last year’s ASUS PadFone Infinity. Turns out, not much. AT&T took to their blog to reveal the PadFone X’s specs, all of which can be found down below.

ASUS PadFone Infinity X back

As you can see, the phone has aged pretty well, offering many of the high-end specs typical of this year’s flagships. For those interested in the PadFone X’s “Design Story,” ASUS North America uploaded a quick overview video. The video covers many of the tablet/hybrids main hardware points, in ASUS’ typical cheesy voice-over style.

AT&T was still quiet on pricing and availability, although they promise to have more details soon. We’ll keep you posted.

    Hope the phone has long battery life on it’s own, as 2,300 mah w/a 5″ display doesn’t sound so hot.

    Might as well comment on the tablet’s bezel while I’m here:

    DAAAAYAAAAAMMMMMMNNNNN……..

    • Jody Schoolcraft

      It’s like they put a 9″ screen on a 10″ screen tablet and filled in the rest with bezel…

      • Tony Lai

        I guess they tried to save cost on the display plus the housing…. terrible move by Asus to try to impress the US market like this…

    Too bad it’s another ATT exclusive. I’m happy with my combination Note 3 and Note 8 right now, but Padfone was always something that I would’ve considered losing the Note series for.

  • max

    Always wondered who in the world buys a padphone?

    • Tony Lai

      They are kinda popular in Asia.

    I hope this goes down the way it did with the Galaxy Note. AT&T only for this generation but then everyone picks up on it next generation.

  • Aslan Bollin

    They’re taking to long releasing this… I want it, but im getting tired of waiting for the padfone to come stateside.
    They announce the device then 3-4 months later still no news no hands on no nada.
    Samsung, Htc etc announces a phone and people play with it THAT very day and are ordering/buying it within a month…. o_O
    Get your ish together.

    The thought process of that designer:
    1. People like small screen tablets + Giant screen phone.
    2. Durr we put 9 inchers + 5 inchers.
    3. Oh dang… 5 inchers in portrait is too large for 9 inchers in landscape..
    4. Increase the bezel

    One last look at that 9 inch bezel.. *facepalm* That alone is the turn off of this device.
