A Great Screen for Every Scenario
The PadFone X is a 5-inch full HD smartphone that activates a 9-inch full HD tablet when the phone is docked. It runs Android KitKat 4.4. and features a thin and light design with a brushed metal frame, a soft-touch back cover and dual front speakers that deliver captivating audio.
The PadFone X combines both smartphone and tablet into a thin and light package with seamless transitions that lets the user choose between two screen sizes dependent on the task at hand. Its unique design and features include:
* Seamless Transition -- Simply dock the smartphone and Apps running will instantaneously auto-adjust to fit the larger PadFone station display.
* Optimal Experience -- Consumers can effortlessly select the display experience that's optimized for the application and their environment at that moment -- whether they are watching a video at their kitchen table or taking a call as they run out the door. The PadFone X delivers a uniquely seamless experience that enables today's mobile life.
* Large Battery -- The companion PadFone station includes a large battery. It charges the smartphone's battery when docked, providing two times longer battery life. This allows users to do more of the things they love, for longer.
The PadFone X supports LTE-Advanced technology, including Carrier Aggregation. The new product also supports Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and HD Voice.
