White ASUS PadFone 2 and PadFone 2 Station shown off in new photosAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
The ASUS PadFone 2 got its big reveal a little over a month ago, and while the device will be available in both black and white variants, so far we haven't seen much of the latter model. That changes today, as VR-Zone has gotten hold of some quality shots of the white PadFone 2 alongside a white PadFone 2 Station. The photos show a PadFone 2 handset that's white on both its front and rear, which is good news for folks that aren't fans of the two-tone black-front-and-white-rear look that some white devices have. The same can't be said for the white PadFone 2 Station, though, as it features a white backside but a black bezel on its face.
The PadFone 2's spec sheet includes a 4.7-inch 1280x720 Super IPS+ display, 13-megapixel rear and 1.2-megapixel front cameras, 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and a 2,140mAh battery powering the whole show. The PadFone 2 comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich preinstalled but is upgradable to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Meanwhile, the PadFone 2 Station features a 10.1-inch 1280x800 IPS display, 1-megapixel camera and 5,000mAh battery.
While a white smartphone isn't for everyone, it's always good to see a manufacturer offer a couple of different color options, and the fact that both colors of the PadFone 2 are official now will surely please anyone that's ever gotten upset about the debut of a white version of a device that came several months after the black variant. The PadFone 2 is set to launch in several European and Asian countries "before the end of December." There's no word on a U.S. release just yet, but ASUS has promised to announce details on availability in other countries soon. Until then, you can find more shots of the white PadFone 2 at the VR-Zone link below.
