Fujitsu to show dust/water-proof Quad-core Tegra 3 Android ICS smartphone with 13.1 mpx camera at MWC
One of the more interesting things at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will be the return of Japanese phone makers to the world market.
Today we can tell you what Fujitsu has in store for MWC in Barcelona. And it is one very impressive Android powerhouse, with:
- NVIDIA Tegra 3 (Maximum 1.5Ghz Quad Core + Companion Core) CPU + 12GPU
- 4.6” display
- 13.1 megapixel camera
- Water-resistant and dust-resistant
- Fingerprint sensor
- OS: Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
Despite the high-powered CPU, Japanese vendor also promises long battery life for it’s new smartphone.
Fujitsu is only bringing “sample units” of their new smartphone to MWC , so it might be a while until we see it in stores. But I really hope it will not take too long.
While new software platforms and apps were advancing with a breathtaking speed, smartphone hardware innovation all but stopped over the past few years. Yes, we got faster CPUs and GPUs, more RAM and bigger/better displays. But what’s in it for us, end users? We also got increasingly problematic battery life in our smartphones. Cameras got stuck in 5-8 megapixel range, and my 2-year-old Xperia X10 still takes better pictures than my brand new Galaxy Nexus.
Those dust and water proof Japanese smartphones, with gigantic camera sensors and other specs should be a much needed kick in the arse to Samsung, HTC and others here. Maybe they’ll wake up and remember that it isn’t all about CPU/GPU and display size anymore.
