ASUS was already known to be preparing a PadFone Mini, but the details about the project were quite scarce. Today we get a few extra pieces of info on the topic and we learn that the handset included in this combo is going to be a 4 inch.
Last I heard the PadFone Mini involved a 7 inch tablet and that said tablet will be used as a dock for a smaller handset. Now a supposed device of this kind appears on the GFXBench site, under the codenamed PadFone T00C. It appears the handset part will offer a qHD resolution and inside we’ll get a Snapdragon S4 CPU at 1.4 GHz, plus an Adreno 305 GP.
The smartphone will run Android 4.3 and support 4G LTE connectivity. Apparently, we may also see the PadFone T00C powering up a 10 inch tablet, not only a 7 incher, so an affordable 10 inch PadFone may also be on its way. CES 2014 is the deadline to look for here.
