Thanks to evleaks and GFXBench listing, we now have a pretty idea of the specs of Asus Padfone Infinity A86. The smartphone is expected to feature Qualcomm’s 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor along with full HD display, Android 4.2.2 and microSD card slot. The phone will reportedly be released in White colour but the release date is mystery at this moment.
Considering the Padfone moniker, we also expect the company to introduce a tablet dock along with the smartphone, which will allow the phone to dock inside. The specifications of this tablet dock are not known but we expect the presence of at-least full HD display and a decent battery.
Asus might reveal the device at the IFA trade fair next month but we are yet to see any concrete evidence indicating the same.
