Computex 2013 is just around the corner, and that means now is the time when manufacturers start teasing us about what they plan to show off. For Asus, the teasing takes place in the form of an Android action-figure, which is teeming with hints of what is to come.

To find the biggest hints, you don’t need to look any further than the box. Right on the front of the box we see things like the model number, “N6-TE”, as well as two arms that likely represent two key features for this Asus device: the ability to make phone calls and the ability to take notes, possibly with a built-in stylus.

Some of the other big hints include the words “We Transform” and the name “Droid Mark II”. Last but not least, there is a big number “6” on the Android figure’s chest.

Putting it all together, what does it mean? Only Asus knows for certain, but it wouldn’t seem crazy to think this is either some kind of 6-inch Transformer device. Then there is also the possibility that this could be a sequel to the Asus FonePad, hence the “mark 2” mentioning.

Whatever it is, we can pretty much bet it will come in a form factor that puts it directly in competition with large-display phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note series. Going with a 6-inch display also means the device will work well as a tablet but won’t seem as ridiculous when held up to your face, unlike the Asus FonePad.

For now, all we can do is speculate and geek out about great things to come at Computex. Luckily, we only have to wait until June 3rd at 3PM (local Taiwan time) to learn what Asus has up its sleeves.

What do you think, excited for Asus’ device unveiling or not?

    It’s almost impossible for me to give up my Note 2, but I do like the competition from the Asus line of phablets, it keeps Samsung driving it forward. It’s a little bit like Cessna thinking it could compete with Boeing. Nice try, but I’ll stay with Samsung.
