MWC 2012: Waterproof Fujitsu F12arc with Android 4.0 ICS, Tegra 3 and LTE hands-on

Just recently, Fujitsu announced that it would release Android and Windows Phone devices in Europe sometime before the end of 2012. One of them might be the Fujitsu F12arc, which was brought by the Japanese company at MWC 2012 in Barcelona.

The F12arc is the same Fujitsu handset we told you about last week, hence it runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and comes with a 1.4GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor.

The smartphone is waterproof and dustproof, and further features a 4.6 inch display with 1280 x 720 pixels, LTE connectivity, front-facing camera, a 13.1MP rear camera with high sensitivity (ISO 25600 – should be perfect for photos taken in low light environments), and 1080p video recording. This camera might not beat Nokia 808 PureView’s 41MP one, but it could be one of the best cameras we’ll see on an Android phone in the near future.

Overall, the Fujitsu F12arc feels like a true high-end product. The unit presented at MWC is still a prototype, and the folks over at Fujitsu couldn’t tell if it will make it to Europe or not. For now, the company didn’t decide on the exact smartphones it’s going to bring to European markets, but let’s hope the F12arc will be among them, because it certainly can stand next to any other high-end smartphone out there.
