ASUS took the unusual step of revealing on its event invitation that it would unveil the Padfone 2 at an event on October 16th. The teasing now continues on its website:
The ASUS Padfone 2 is expected to offer a similar set of accessories as the original Padfone. The smartphone can be docked into a tablet docking base and a keyboard can be added to complete the transformation from smartphone to notebook.
Days ago, a number of specification details also leaked out. If accurate, the Padfone 2 will come with a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm processor, a 4.7-inch HD (1280×720) display, GSM and WCDMA connectivity, 2GB RAM, a 13MP rear camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, and a 2,140mAh battery.
ASUS will livestream its October 16th event for those who cannot make it to the event which will be held in both Milan, Italy and Taipei, Taiwan.
It remains to be seen if the Padfone 2 will make its way to North America.
