New Asus Padfone Infinity A86 officially arrives next week
It looks like Asus is finally ready to announce its new Padfone Infinity – the A86, which was spotted in live photos last month.
Asus has already launched a teaser website for the new Infinity, confirming that the device will be announced on September 17. There’s also a very short video that shows the A86 (it’s embedded below).
Unlike the original Padfone Infinity, the new one will have a Qualcomm 800 quad-core processor, MicroSD card slot, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box. That aside, it’s the same concept: a 5 inch Full HD smartphone paired with a tablet dock (10.1 inch display) that includes an extra battery.
The Padfone Infinity A86 should be available in two color versions: black and white. I assume it will be out in Asia first, with Europe and North America following shortly after that. Asus did not say when it intends to start selling the device, but that’ll probably happen in the next few months.
