Fans of Asus may be in for a treat over the next few days as its next mobile phone update could be here as soon as next week (September 17th).
The company announced that the Padfone Infinity will become official on September 17th. It's expected to bring a five-inch full-HD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
It is a unique handset as it forms a hybrid device which means the PadFone is essentially a smartphone inside a tablet to give the user a much bigger screen. Although it may sound odd, it's proving popular with users as Asus carries on pushing it with new handsets.
The company has posted a teaser video showing a phone exploding out of the tablet which is complemented by an official countdown on the website which counts the days left until the official launch.
It's unusual that Asus didn't use the big stage in Berlin at the IFA 2013 event to announce the Padfone Infinity, especially as the firm puts so much weight behind the hybrid device.
