ASUS PadFone Mini 4.3 pictured ahead of its launch next week

We only just got a whiff of a smaller version of ASUS' odd PadFone series as it passed through certification, and now serial leaker @evleaks can show us what it looks like. As its name indicates, the ASUS PadFone Mini 4.3 shrinks the phone part of the device from 5-inches to a more mainstream size, while the pics suggest rumors of a 7-inch tablet portion appear to be accurate. Our Engadget Chinese colleagues have already been invited to an official unveiling in Taiwan on the 11th -- so far none of the devices have seen an official US release -- so check back Wednesday for all the full details and official specs.
