The very first PadFone was launched in 2012 and even though it didn’t make a huge career, new generations of the phone/tablet hybrid are being released regularly. The latest model called PadFone S debuted just a few months ago, in late 2014 to be more exact, but it looks like Asus is already working on a new version of the smartphone. The new Asus PadFone S 2015 is rumored to come with a few minor updates. Let’s take a closer look what to expect.
Asus PadFone S 2015 to sport 3GB RAM and 64GB memory
We always welcome improvements when it comes to smartphones and tablets, however, don’t expect a complete makeover of the PadFone S. It seems that the only thing Asus upgraded is the amount of RAM and internal memory. The 2014 model sports 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage. This year, users will get at their disposal 3GB of RAM plus 64GB of memory and that’s about it as far as upgrades are concerned. Other specs and features remain unchanged.
The PadFone S 2015, like any other member of the PadFone family, is a hybrid device that includes a smartphone and a tablet. The phone sports a 5-inch Full HD display and is powered by a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor. Other key features include a 13-megapixel main camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, Cat4 LTE, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, and a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support as well as a 2300mAh battery.
The tablet doesn’t have its own processor or memory, hence it can serve its purpose only when the phone is docked in. The tablet packs a 9-inch display, also with Full HD resolution, 1-megapixel user-facing camera and a 4990mAh battery. The combo runs on Android 4.4 KitKat, but it seems like 5.0 Lollipop is a viable option.
The original PadFone didn’t take the market by storm, but apparently it sold well enough that Asus decided to make a few different variants. The latest upgrades to the S model may not be spectacular but nonetheless should improve the performance and maybe encourage more users to give it a try.
