Even though the TransPhone is only showing up the party now, it is already trumped not only by the older PadFone but by the upcoming PadFone 2. Tomorrow Asus will officially announce the Padfone 2, but that isn’t stopping the net from leaking official photos ahead of schedule.
So what has changed in the latest PadFone? For starters, the docking station no longer has a door latch. Inside, it simply slides and is ready to go. You can even watch a video in tablet mode and pull out the phone without interrupting a thing.
Besides a few cosmetic changes, there is also tons of power underneath the hood in the PadFone 2. The device itself has a larger 4.7-inch screen with a 1280 x 720 pixel display and also upgrades its processor to a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm. There is also 1GB of RAM and 13MP camera. It is also believed that the device will have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Keep in mind that the specs aren’t yet confirmed, though. In other words, take this with a grain of salt.
We will know more tomorrow when Asus officially unveils the unique smartphone/tablet transforming device. What do you think? Excited for the PadFone 2 or not?
