Fujitsu shows off its prototype quad-core smartphone, doesn’t let anyone touch

Ready for quad-core smartphones? Now that NVIDIA’s quad-core processor, the Tegra 3, is out, you can expect quad-core phones to be available soon. After all, we already have the first quad-core tablet, the Transformer Prime, available for consumers to enjoy.

On display in Fujitsu’s CES booth was a quad-core prototype phone. Although the company had the phone behind a glass to prevent convention attendees from playing with the phone and looking under its hood, they did have it hooked up to a television and did have Riptide GP, a Tegra 3-optimized game, available for the public to play with.

According to Fujitsu, this prototype quad-core phone featured the following specs:

  • 1.2GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
  • LTE connectivity
  • 13.1-megapixel high sensitivity (ISO25600) camera
  • 4.6-inch HD-quality LCD display
  • Waterproof and dustproof

I don’t know about you, but those specs are amazing. It’s crazy how fast the industry is moving. Of course, this phone is only a prototype. There’s no telling if it will ever make it to consumers’ hands. Even if this specific prototype doesn’t become a reality, I’m sure that we’ll see quad-core phones with similar specs in just a few months!
