AT&T Releases Specs for ASUS PadFone X, Still No Release Date

Ever since the PadFone X from ASUS was announced at CES this year, we have been patiently waiting to learn more about the device. We know that it will be on AT&T, that it will have LTE Advanced, feature HD Voice and VoLTE, but that was about it.

Today, AT&T has dropped the spec list for the phone/tablet hybrid to satisfy our appetite until the launch date. 

A few of the highlights would be that the PadFone X is launch with Kit Kat, a 13MP camera on the rear of the PadFone itself, and an unspecified 2.3GHz quad-core processor. What is awesome about this spec list is that the PadFone and the PadFone dock have their separate specs, which when combined make for one awesome device.

Unfortunately, we still do not have a set release date from ASUS or AT&T. AT&T promises that we are “one step closer” to getting our hands on it, but nothing more than that. As soon as we hear more, we will keep you updated.

Take a look at the spec list below.

    As per recent news, Netflix had earlier struck
    an agreement with Comcast, paying the latter in order to gain better access to

  • I used to want one… several years ago with Android tablets were brand new and this was all the rage, but I just don’t see the need for this anymore.

  • r0l

    I wonder how this will handle apps that have different formats for phone versus tablet, if they will will recognized which format to use with each launch or if you will only get phone formatted apps.

  • Jacob Mustin

    I wish other brands did this. Ill never buy another Asus after the gosh awful TF201 (and my in laws with N7 2013 problems)

  • epps720

    I’m mildly interested in this but the big question is how much will it be off contract.

  • Matthew Toomey

    Any idea what skin will be in this? Any idea how easy it is to root/unlock? If purchased on eBay or elsewhere can this go on T-Mobile?

  • xpyroxcorex

    Its kind of ugly… I really like the concept, but I think they need to do a little more with it. They should have an 8″ dock and a 10-15″ dock. And have a wacom stylus. It would be perfect. Oh and make it look better…..

  • Alex Boro

    This phone is so under hyped.

      • Tim

        It’s not true.

    • Tim

      Not true.

  • Steven02

    I know it is bigger, but it looks like an iPhone.

  • Intellectua1

    I remember when I was interested in this.. Now I’m not…

  • dwboston

    I’m interested in this. Specs look OK. It’s way past time to replace my Xoom, and a KitKat phone with a working microSD card would be nice.

  • Kelly Marvel

    The phone itself is reminiscent of early pre-Android touchscreen phones. It looks pretty clunky and the screen looks small. Doesn’t look like something that I’d be running off to purchase on the release date…

    • CoreRooted

      Given that it has similar specs screen-wise to the N5/S4/G2, I fail to see how it is reminiscent of any early Android devices. 5″ @ 1920×1080 (441 ppi) is not a bad display size at all. Now, considering we don’t know what the screen technology used is, that could possibly degrade display quality. The rest of the specs obviously don’t put it squarely as a next gen device, but that’s not what Asus is trying to achieve with it (as far as I can tell).

    Am I the only one who doesn’t want one of these?

    • The Narrator

      Nope, Asus blows. Except the Nexus 7 2013.

      • Tim

        Uh, I disagree. Yay opinions!

          Clap clap clap

      • Asus is a leader in laptops and desktops, they produce excellent products.

          Maybe the 1 in 25 devices that actually work. Over 10 laptops i exchanged, one worked but still had flaws.

          Terrible build, screens suck, bleeding like crazy.

          Have fun with piss poor products. That’s your choice
