Asus Padfone2 Might be Unveiled at October 16 Event

The highly anticipated Padfone 2 hybrid device is finally ready to launch. Asus, the company behind the Padfone 2, has sent out ‘save the date’ notes to Taiwan and Italy for the device launch.

Padfone 2 is a cross between mobile phone and a tablet. This device will be uncovered on October 16 at an event in Milan in Italy and Taipei in Taiwan at the same time.

Asus has not revealed any other details about the October 16th event and the device specifications are also unknown.

Going by the rumors, the device packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, and would be significantly better than its predecessor.

But then, these are rumors and need to be taken with a pinch of salt. It would be also possible that the device will launch with an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

But considering the fact that Asus is the maker of Google’s Nexus 7, we need to expect Android 4.1 Jelly Bean running inside the Padfone2.

Apart from a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 Super IPS+ display, this device sports 2GB of RAM, 13 megapixel camera and LTE connectivity. It measures 2.71x 5.43 x 0.35 in dimensions and weighs 4.76oz.  For further details, you will have to wait until October 16th.
