PadFone X Spotted in Benchmark with Android KitKat and Snapdragon 800

Asus just unveiled the PadFone Mini last week, but it looks like the company is also working on another flagship two-in-one hybrid. A new device referred to as the PadFone X was recently spotted in an Antutu benchmark, boasting high-end specs and impressive speeds.

The PadFone X appears to come equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 1200 x 1920-pixel display—though it’s unclear if this resolution refers to the smartphone itself, the tablet component or both. The benchmark also lists the device as sporting a 5-megapixel camera—even weaker than the Mini’s 8-megapixel shooter—suggesting we may be looking at an early model subject to future changes.

Asus CEO Jerry Shen recently promised the company would launch its first PadFone targeting the U.S. market early next year as part of a new two-pronged strategy. Shen wouldn’t reveal any specific details, but it looks like the PadFone X could be that device. We won’t know anything for sure until the Taiwanese company makes an official announcement, which likely won’t happen until next year at either CES 2014 in January or during Mobile World Congress a month later.
