We get to watch as Android-powered devices make their presence known across the globe all the time, usually knowing that most of them won’t be making a US-based appearance any time soon. This is one of those times, with the Medias LTE N-04D by NEC making its first rendered appearance before its subsequent launch later this month. There’s no word on whether or not this particular 4G LTE-equipped device will be making a showing here in the States, or anywhere else other than Japan really, but we aren’t ones to say anything is impossible.
The Medias LTE features a 4.3-inch LCD touchscreen, with 720p resolution. There’s a 1.2GHz dual-core processor under the hood, and as we mentioned above it will connect to NTT DoCoMo’s LTE network. It will also feature a mobile wallet feature, as well as a TV tuner functionality. The shell is reportedly waterproof, and it measures in at only 11.6mm thin. There doesn’t seem to be a mention of which version of Android the device will be running when it launches, but the notification bar does show the blue tint of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but we won’t hold our breath on that one.
It will be available on February 15th, but for those in Japan who really, really want this device, you can pre-order now.
