Fujitsu announces new quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3-powered phone

Fujitsu has announced that it’ll be bringing some Nvidia Tegra 3-powered quad-core power to Mobile World Congress in the form of an unnamed smartphone.

All we have to go on right now is a brief list if specifications which read:

  •     CPU: Nvidia Tegra 3, Maximum 1.5GHz Quad Core + Companion Core + 12GPU
  •     Screen size: 4.6-inches
  •     Camera resolution: 13.1-megapixels
  •     Water-resistant and dust-resistant
  •     Equipped with fingerprint sensor
  •     OS: Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)

No idea on its dimensions but given that screen size it’s going to be pretty wide. And judging by what we’ve seen with Fujitsu’s Arrows F-07D, we’re expecting something slim and slender (but hopefully less fingerprinty).

We asked whether or not the phone was the same one that we saw behind glass at CES (image above courtesy of The Verge) and were told that it was a “technical demo of what [the phone] could be,” but that it doesn’t necessarily reflect the shape the phone will take.

Apparently there’ll be a fish tank on hand at the Fujitsu display at Mobile World Congress so we’ll be able to test out the water-resistant credentials. The fingerprint sensor sounds interesting too – we’ve not seen one of those on a phone since the Motorola Atrix. This could compliment the face unlocker tool of Ice Cream Sandwich to make for a super-secure platform.

We’re due to stop by the Fujtisu stand at Mobile World Congress so expect pictures, first impressions and a fuller fleshed out spec sheet.
