Outing a new take on phone security, Fujitsu began with a rather impressive working prototype of the Arrows NX F-04G, which was display during MWC 2015. An early impression that blew testers away, clearly destroying the norm of fingerprint scanners in its wake.
The claims of being the first in the market could be somewhat lacklustre having being launched on the 25th of May, earlier this year – behind the likes of the ViewSonic V55 and the Vivo’s X5Pro. Boldly claiming that the Arrows NX F-04G will allow the screen to be unlocked in only 0.6 seconds, thus rendering passwords and on-screen gestures inefficient.
Enabling the utilisation of this Iris Passport and Iris authentication technology is a front-facing 2.4 megapixel shutter and a rear 20.7 megapixel Sony Exmor sensor. A practically of sorts, the Iris Passport will be able to be used with other applications that require password authentication for payment or otherwise.
Fujitsu however, sticks to the general trend of Japanese companies with a domestic-market only release. Locals won’t be disappointed with the device’s accompanying specs either – running a top of the line 64-bit Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 with graphics handled by the Adreno 430, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage that is expandable. The display is a Quad HD 5.2-inch that runs at 1440 x 2560 resolution display, pushing 565 pixels and protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
Available only in Japan through NTT DoCoMo for roughly $750 after conversion, the Fujitsu Arrows NX F-04G is looking like an amazing phone, we only wish it was a global release.
