The smartphone and tablet market are set to be rocked during 2012, with companies such as Huawei and Fujitsu, very well-known in Asia, but not so much in America and Europe, preparing to globally launch some of the snappiest and most powerful gadgets we have ever seen.
And while Huawei has pretty much already revealed its plans for the following months, the guys at Fujitsu are still keeping a low-profile. We knew that they had a quad-core Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone with a humongous camera in the works, but up until today we didn’t know how will it be called and if it will in fact target the high-end part of the technology market.
The guys at ameblo.jp have just spotted a benchmark of this future smartphone and it seems that it will be called the Fujitsu F12 Arc. However, that’s not the most important story of today, but rather the actual benchmark score of the F12 Arc.
I don’t know how familiar you are with the NenaMark 1 benchmark, but this big guy scored a hefty and impressive 61.80. For comparison sake, the Sony LT29i Hayabusa, which had a leaked similar benchmark a couple of days back, only scored a 45.50.
It’s true that the Hayabusa is set to be more of a medium-end smartphone when it will hit the market in summer, but still the difference is almost overwhelming. Aside from the F12 Arc’s actual performance score, the leaked benchmark also confirmed what we thought we knew a while back.
The Fujitsu smartphone will be powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, will run Android 4.0.3 out of the box and will sport a 1280 x 720 pixels resolution screen (most likely with a 4.6-inch diagonal). We also found out a couple of weeks ago that the device will feature a 13.1 MP rear-facing camera, so all in all this should be one of the snappiest and most impressive Android-based gadgets of 2012.
Unfortunately, we still have no details about the smartphone’s release date or possible price tag, so for the time being we should keep our cool, patiently wait and hope the guys at Fujitsu will put us out of our misery soon with a couple of official announcements.
