It’s been more than a little while since we last heard of a Fujitsu smartphone breaking cover, but that’s no reason to ignore the Arrows A 202F. Quite on the contrary, as the SoftBank-bound handheld comes with exceptional specs in tow.
True, there’s no Snapdragon 800 heat inside the thing, so it won’t be a match for Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra or Samsung’s Galaxy S4 LTE-A. But you do get the next best thing – a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU clocked at 1.7 GHz.
Plus, the handheld compensates any kind of disadvantage it might have in the raw performance department with… wait for it… a high-capacity 3,000 mAh battery. That’s with a 5-inch Full HD screen, mind you, so the Arrows A 202F should last much longer than the 6.4-inch Xperia Z Ultra between charges.
Okay, what else does Fujitsu’s phone have going for it? Well, how about 64 GB of on-board storage? It’s true, that probably comes as the expense of microSD support, but honestly, do you really need more memory?
That’s still not all that’s special about the 5-incher, as there are also 2 gigs of RAM beneath its hood, a 13 MP camera slapped on its back, plus a scratch-resistant “Ultra Toughguard plus” coating on top of the screen. And NFC, and DLNA, and water and dust protection. Talk about a dreamy list of features, eh?
Oddly, there’s no mention of the Android version running on the beast, even though 4.2 Jelly Bean seems like a must to go with those spectacular specs. SoftBank Japan is to put Fujitsu’s phone up for grabs starting June 28 (i.e. the day after tomorrow) in four differently colored variants – blue, pink, black and white. No words on pricing, but you should probably get your piggybanks ready. No way this is going to be budget friendly. Anyone getting it regardless?
