Asus Padfone 2 will be announced on October 16
The Asus Padfone 2 will get unveiled on October 16, at two simultaneous events scheduled to take place in Milan, Italy, and Taipei, Taiwan.
The Padfone 2 will obviously be the successor to the original Padfone, that was reintroduced at this year’s MWC in February, only to then face some pretty serious supply issues. The original Padfone still isn’t shipping in great quantities throughout the world, so a successor, though early, may not be a bad idea at this point. Asus clearly wants to profit from the famed holiday shopping season, so we’re going to assume that we’ll see the Padfone 2 in stores before December.
It may come with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, just like the LG Optimus G. At least that’s what one leaked benchmark seemed to indicate not long ago. And since this is going to be branded Padfone, we fully expect there to be a tablet dock and a keyboard dock attached. We’ll know everything there is to know in less than a month, so stay tuned.
