Reports indicate that invitations from Asus CEO Jerry Shen stating that the technology company was hosting an event in Taipei next Tuesday for the new PadFone Infinity have gone out. Visually, the new PadFone Infinity is expected to look just like the old version.

However, the new version is expected to get some updated internals. Among those upgrades is expected to be a new Snapdragon 800 SOC. The device is also expecting get a microSD card slot.

Rumors also suggest that a white version of the PadFone Infinity will be unveiled. Along with invitation to the Asus event the company also offered up a video teasing the device.
