The new device’s official features haven’t been unveiled, but we’ve heard it would come with a quad-core Qualcomm processor, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. And now, thanks to the fact that the Global Certification Forum has approved it, we can confirm the PadFone 2 has LTE connectivity (on bands 3, 7, and 20 – usable only in Europe, Asia, and Latin America). A PadFone 2 version with US-friendly LTE will probably show up soon, too.
Like the first Asus PadFone, the new one will be comprised of a smartphone, and a tablet dock. There’s no word on how much it will cost – but it’s certainly not going to be cheap.
