But while its exterior design and features may be attractive, the most appealing part seems to be what’s under the hood – it uses Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon chipset. This much awaited system-on-a-chip is said to support 720p video decoding, 3D graphics and a dynamic speed control feature to lower clock speeds when performing light tasks in order to conserve battery life. In other words, the TG01 is a pretty capable smartphone and could double as a powerful mobile gaming platform as well – if developers notice it of course.
Toshiba said that the TG01 will be available in Europe over the summer but gave no details regarding carriers or even a price. Hopefully more details will come out at the Mobile World Congress later this month. In the meantime, you can check out a video of the device in action after the break.
