Remember back at the CES, when we got the chance to see one of the first quad-core Android smartphones ever, thanks to a prototype Fujitsu had put out on display? It may have been safely tucked-away behind a sheet of acrylic, but it was there in the flesh, all the same. We learned a few specs on the phone at the time, with the expectation that we’d be seeing a more refined version of the handset at the MWC. With that expo nearly upon us, a new render of the phone has become available, along with some additional and updated specs.
While we heard that CES prototype was running a Tegra 3 at 1.2GHz, this new information has the chip clocked even higher, at 1.5GHz. The 13-megapixel camera we learned about before is mentioned again here, along with the phone’s 4.6-inch screen. There’s still no mention of resolution, but look for a minimum of 720p.
This new information adds a couple features to what we know about this Fujitsu model. For one, the handset will be water and dust-resistant, but there’s no mention of shock resistance or any other ruggedizing. Fujitsu will also include a fingerprint scanner, a decidedly odd option that we only see once-in-a-while on smartphones, like with the Motorola Atrix.
Fujitsu still hasn’t revealed a name for this prototype quad-core Android, but maybe it will be ready to share by MWC.
