Asus: PadFone 2 Is ‘Definitely’ Coming to U.K. Early Next Year

Asus decided not to bring the original PadFone to the United Kingdom, much to the disappointment of Brits who were itching to get their hands on the do-it-all, transforming smartphone (like me!). But the Taiwanese company won’t be forgetting about us this time around.

Adam King, a spokesman for Asus U.K., has confirmed to TechRadar that it will “definitely” be bringing the PadFone 2 to the U.K. early next year.

“As to [exactly] when I can’t say,” Kind added. “But we’ll hopefully have some more details before the end of this year.”

This is great news, especially considering the PadFone 2 is even more impressive this time around. It’s packing a quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture. It also boasts a 4.7-inch Super IPS+ (1280 x 720) display, a 2,140 mAh battery, and 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of storage.

The PadFone 2 will be arriving in parts of Europe and Asia later this year, but Asus is yet to provide a specific release date.

Are you looking forward to PadFone 2?
