Earlier we had reported that ASUS was set to announce the company’s upcoming PadFone Infinity which will be making its debut next week during an event held in Taipei, Taiwan. At that time ASUS had only sent out an invite, but has since released a rather cheeky video which shows the smartphone portion of the combo “launching” from the tablet. The video is under 10 seconds long but surprisingly pretty entertaining.
For those unfamiliar with the PadFone Infinity, the device was announced earlier this year at MWC 2013, but unfortunately the device was not made available for purchase in the US. This led to speculation that ASUS was looking to beef up the device to prime it for a release for the US market, and benchmark sightings have suggested that a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset could be making its way into the device. A rumor further down the line even saw the handset portion of the combo pictured along with a possible launch date in September, and we guess that is really going to happen.
In any case if you have a few seconds to spare you should check out the video above, and check back with us next week for the details.
