New Delhi: Asus has launched its mid-range smartphone, the PadFone Mini, a 4-inch 3G dual SIM Android smartphone that transforms into a 7-inch tablet. The device is priced at Rs 15,999.
The 4-inch PadFone Mini features a screen with a resolution of 800 x 480p and is powered by a dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 SoC clocked at 1.6GHz, coupled with 1 GB of RAM.
