If you thought that Asus’s previous flagship phone, the Padfone S, would be outdone by the more popular Zenfone series, a specs leak suggests that the phone/tablet hybrid system will keep going.

According to a report via Mobipicker, the Asus Padfone S2 is being prepared for a March 2016 launch and will be rocking some top-end specs:

  • SoC:  Snapdragon 820
  • Display:  5.5″ QHD
  • RAM:  4GB
  • Storage:  32GB/64GB on-board
  • Cameras:  20.7MP rear and 8MP front
  • Battery:  3,060mAh

This is quite a list for a device that is far away, but in-line with specs we expect to see soon.

And what would the Padfone be with the corresponding tablet?  It is said that the Padfone S2 will dock onto a slab with a 10″ screen and 5,100mAh battery.

As always, especially with a report so early, take this word with a grain of salt.  Would you be looking forward to the Padfone S2 if this is what’s in store, or do you think it’s a tired concept?

  1. Why not just put the 4GB zenfone2 into a padfone and reduce the humongous bezels on the tablet? That would be perfect and cheaper.

      • Thanks Josh. I own both and the zenfone2 is deadly. The unlocked padfone-x I’m using is adequate but I won’t buy another unless they put more thought into it.

    • I actually like the bezel around the PadFone Station as it makes holding the device without touching the screen easier. But perhaps, slightly smaller would make the device more compact, especially if it’s going to be a 10.1″ device.

  2. İ am user asus padfone x. Phone is fast but when you get transform to pad you can’t even watch video on browser you can’t comfortable surf on Facebook. And it has 13 mp camera but quality is really bad. Asus still can’t do well camera choice. I used Asus g50 gaming pro laptop also it’s camera really worst. Even level entry laptop better than adus g50 camera. Night you can’t use camera ever
    And it need a really attractive design.

  3. And you can never find true accessory. No folio bundle no screen protector (just ebay) charge plug in reverse and when you want buy speaker or pad charger you can’t use bec phone should be use reverse

    • I also have the PadFone X and this is also one of my big complaints. I wanted the ASUS Folio bundle and or the keyboard. I ended up finding an acceptable case on eBay and it came with a screen protector. The screen protector sucked, but it was better than nothing. It attracted fingerprints like crazy. I found a much better screen protector with Ghost Armor and I’m really liking it. I’ll be posting a review to AndroidGuys within the next day or so.
