PadFone™ Infinity, like its predecessors, is an evolution of the mobile device as we know it. PadFone™ Infinity, together with its PadFone™ Infinity Station dock, gives users the cost-saving benefits of having both a cutting-edge Android smartphone and a tablet in one device under a single data plan. All the processing power is housed within the PadFone™ Infinity, so it does away with tedious sync times between smartphone and tablet.

The wonders of Dynamic Display Switch ensures data and settings on PadFone™ Infinity are available instantly on PadFone™ Infinity Station upon docking; while running apps smoothly transition to fit the larger 10.1-inch Full HD display.

ASUS designers created several mock-ups as they sought to find a slot-in design that would make the union of smartphone and tablet second nature to users. They took inspiration from bicycle brakes, and yielded a simple design that secures the smartphone into the tablet dock.

“Thin” and “Light” are mobile device buzzwords. PadFone™ Infinity has a unibody frame milled out of aerospace-grade aluminium which, if our trusty pair of vernier calipers are to be believed, measures a mere 6.3mm at its thinnest point. The use of lightweight fiberglass reinforced plastic provides additional structural integrity, with PadFone™ Infinity tipping the scales around 145g. The phone exudes quality, with a brushed aluminum finish and twice-anodized diamond cut edges; and ergonomic touches like precisely-calibrated buttons and curved edges.

Under the hood, PadFone™ Infinity packs a 1.7GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 600 quad-core processor to compete with the most powerful smartphones in the market; while the latest mobile standards like 4G LTE deliver super-fast web connections. The PadFone™ Infinity’s Li-ion battery is good for up to 19 hours of 3G talk time, and this is doubled to 40 hours when docked with the PadFone™ Infinity Station. With a built-in battery of its own, the tablet dock can also charge the PadFone™ Infinity.

Super IPS display technology and 400 nits brightness gives you wide-viewing angles and vibrant images in 1920 × 1080 (PadFone™ Infinity) or 1920 × 1200 (PadFone™ Infinity Station) even in glaring conditions. When it comes to audio, both feature SonicMaster-enhanced audio; PadFone™ Infinity Station has 18mm diameter built-in speakers, comparative to what is found in most laptops.

PadFone™ Infinity’s 13-megapixel main camera has an f/2.0 five-element lens that captures incredible images. It shoots up to 100 continuous photos at 8 frames-per-second (FPS), while simultaneously recording 1080p Full HD video at 30 FPS, or 720p HD video at 60 FPS.
