Fujitsu Arrows quad-core Tegra 3 phone prototype shown, start bugging your carrier for it today
That Fujitsu quad-core phone rumored to be shown at CES, turns out to be part of the Arrows model family of the company, just like its anorexic 0.26" Arrows F-07D brother, which appeared at the FCC not long ago.
A prototype of the Tegra 3-laden superphone has been displayed, and the specs that will accompany its silicon are mouthwatering. How do 4.6" HD display, LTE connectivity and 13.1MP camera with high 25600 ISO sensitivity for better low-light snaps sound to you? Pretty good, right? Not to mention that it will be water- and dustproof like we are used to from Japanese handsets.
The Fujitsu Arrows quad-core phone will also offer DLNA and HDMI-out capabilities for your wireless and wired media streaming needs. The HDMI part is apparently done via an MHL port, judging from the dongle in the pictures, which show the phone running a game on an HDTV, and the game being controlled with a wireless gamepad.
Adding to the excitement is the fact that Android 4.0 ICS will be on the Tegra 3 smartphone out of the box, and by the time we hit MWC time next month, the Fujitsu Arrows superphone should be demoed in its full glory.
Fujitsu is currently shopping the quad-core monster of a handset to carriers in the US and Europe, hoping that it will stick there for a launch in the fall. Otherwise it will be detailed completely in March, possibly with altered design, and appear on Japanese shelves in the summer.
