Asus Padfone 2 specs leaked ahead of October unveiling?

Asus Padfone 2 specs leaked ahead of October unveiling?The original Asus Padfone is currently going for £689.99, with the keyboard dock, over at Expansys. Bargain (says the guy who spent £700 on an iPhone 5). I wonder if anyone in the country bought one.

In any case, Asus has told us to leave October 16 free for the Padfone 2 launch, and – surprise, surprise – the specs have now been leaked in advance. Well, supposedly.

The purported Asus Padfone 2 specs first appeared over on Chinese site mobile01.com, and are relayed by Pocket Droid. We appear to be looking at some sort of Asus Padfone 2 box.

We’re told to expect a 4.7in Super IPS+ display (1280 x 720) on the smartphone component, a quad-core Qualcomm S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, and a 13MP rear camera with autofocus and flash.

Other Asus Padfone 2 specs include a 2,140mAh battery, 1.2MP front camera, LTE (Long Term Evolution), and 2GB of RAM.

No mention of the Asus Padfone 2 tablet size, but we imagine it’ll be 10.1in again. Nor are we told which version of Android to expect, though Asus has a pretty decent rep, so we’d bet on Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) at this stage.

Good question! I wasn't aware the first one was actually sold anywhere, yet. :p

I was thinking about getting one, since I could really do with the kind of shared memory architecture you get with it but with all the recent Intel news lately (stuff like the Surface Pro and new 10w Atoms) I'd rather wait a year and get something similar only running x86, since it makes it an awful lot more versatile
