ASUS Padfone Mini Leaks Ahead Of Official Unveiling
ASUS is rumored to be officially unveiling its scaled down Padfone variant, the Padfone Mini, at a dedicated event in Taiwan scheduled to take place this Wednesday, December 11. However, today a leaked press render of the device has appeared online, revealing some rather drastic design changes when compared to the original.
These leaked pictures come courtesy of @Evleaks and clearly show the 4-3-inch “mini” smartphone and its 7-inch tablet dock. Instead of mounting in a landscape orientation, like the past two generations, the Padfone Mini will now dock in portrait mode.
