Asus has just announced its latest PadFone, the PadFone Infinity, confirming an image that leaked earlier today. Like previous models, the PadFone is an Android smartphone that docks into a large display to become a tablet. The Infinity has a 5-inch 1080p display, LTE connectivity, 64GB of storage, and a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor. Those specs put Asus' new phone on par with the best around; the "Pad" side of the product, which Asus calls the "Infinity Station," features a 10.1-inch 1080p display as well as another battery.

Have you ever wanted to "capture up to 100 sequential images at 8 frames-per-second while simultaneously recording 1080p Full HD video?" Well the PadFone Infinity is perfect smartphone and tablet combo for you. Asus is making a big deal over the Infinty's imaging capabilities: its got a 13-megapixel sensor paired with an f/2.0 5-element lens, and also has a dedicated imaging processor that allows for the aforementioned extreme amount of sequential image capture.

Only UK pricing has been announced so far, and it's not pretty. The Asus PadFone Infinity and the "Infinity Station" will cost £799 (or €999) — that's somewhere between $1200 and $1400, dependent on which figure you convert — when it launches.
