New PadFone Infinity to Pack Snapdragon 800 Chip, Report Says

Earlier this month, a few leaked slides from an Asus presentation in France gave us an idea of what devices the Taiwananese company has in its pipeline. Now, the details are starting to trickle in for one device in particular, the new PadFone Infinity, which will boast a Snapdragon 800 CPU, a microSD slot and a noise canceling microphone,  according to serial leaker @evleaks.

The PadFone is unlike any other device on the market, combining the tablet and the smartphone into one package. The current Infinity model features a 5-inch Android handset that works on its own or slides into a 10.1-inch slate to power the full-sized tablet. Asus previously hinted that it plans to market its first U.S. smartphone in 2014, so it seems possible that the new PadFone could land on American shores.

The leaked Asus slides also revealed that the company is working on a PadFone Mini, which we imagine might be a 4-inch smartphone that slides into a 7-inch tablet. Whatever happens, it’s clear that Asus has some interesting new products up its sleeve, and we’re hoping as many as possible make it the U.S. market.
