The countdown until the official start of the 2012 MWC is set to start and rumors, leaks and speculations of all sorts will most likely come our way up until the last minute before the Spanish event. One of the most exciting rumors of late points towards the unveiling of a monster of a smartphone running Android Ice Cream Sandwich and featuring among others a quad-core processor and a 13.1 megapixel camera.
The manufacturer behind the making of such a beast is Fujitsu, according to the guys at unwiredview.com, but for the time being, as we have nothing official and not even a leaked picture of some sort, this rumor should be regarded as a not-very-possible thing to become reality.
On the other hand, I for one can’t help but dream and the supposed tech specs of this Fujitsu smartphone are out of this world. I mean, Android 4.0 out of the box is cool enough, but there’s talk about a 1.5 GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, a 4.6-inch display, a 13.1 MP rear-facing camera, a water-resistant and dust-resistant body and a fingerprint sensor.
According to unwiredview, Fujitsu will only be bringing ‘’sample units’’ of this new smartphone to MWC and a release is a question of a distant future, but heck, if the gadget proves to be real, I am willing to wait for it for as long as it takes (well, not quite, but you get the picture).
Also, if the rumors prove to be accurate, Fujitsu might be the second Japanese electronics manufacturer to hit the 2012 MWC with a bang, after Panasonic, who is set to unveil the mysterious Eluga smartphone. Keep in touch with our website in the following week or so, when all these rumors, leaks and speculations will be replaced by official announcements and clarifications (or, on the contrary, by silence from the manufacturers destroying our hopes and dreams).
Update: The guys at Fujitsu have confirmed this smartphone with all the tech specs and features rumored. It will be on display at the MWC starting February 27, but the units brought to Barcelona will only be ”sample units”.
