Fujitsu Arrows NX F-04G is world's first smartphone with iris scanner
Fujitsu has just released their new smartphone, the Arrows NX F-04G. It’s the first smartphone on the market to feature an iris scanner for authentication.
Fujitsu Arrows NX F-04G is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with Adreno 430 GPU and is outfitted with a 5.2-inch IPS display with QHD (1440x2560) resolution, 3 GB of memory and 32 GB of on-board storage.
The smartphone also comes with a 21 MP main camera with Exmor RS sensor, a super-fast LTE-Advanced (a.k.a LTE-A), allowing download speeds of up to 225 Mbps and a 3120 mAh battery. Naturally, it runs Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The iris scanning technology, called Iris Passport, allows more than just unlocking the phone by scanning the user’s iris. Fujitsu claims it can also be used for payment authorization as well as other applications requiring highest level of security.
The device is currently available in 3 color options (white, black and „iris green”) at Japan’s NTT Docomo, where it is priced at $750.
