If you’ve owned an ASUS PadFone or previously thought of buying an ASUS PadFone then you will definitely want ASUS’ latest addition to the ASUS PadFone line, the ASUS PadFone Mini.
As the name suggests, the ASUS PadFone Mini is a fresher, smaller version of the previous PadFone.
The new ASUS PadFone Mini features a 4-inch smartphone that transforms into a 7-inch tablet. The ASUS PadFone Mini packs a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor, an 8GB of internal storage and a micro SD card slot with up to 64GB support.
The PadFone Mini’s 4-inch smartphone has an 800 x 480 pixel resolution while the 7-inch tablet has a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. Both displays use IPS+ (in-plane switching), providing clearer and sharper images and better viewing angles.
It has an 8-megapixel, f/2.0 main and 2MP front camera. Its smartphone is just 6.33mm at its thinnest edge and weighs 116g. The ASUS PadFone Mini (smartphone + tablet) has a combined weight of just 376g, lighter than many smartphone-and-tablet combinations.
The ASUS PadFone Mini has a total battery capacity of 3270mAh (12.8Wh) and surprisingly supports dual SIMs.
