Fujitsu releases the Arrows NX F-04G – World’s first smartphone with iris authentication


Every time a Japan exclusive phone releases, it makes our heart flutter with joy and despair as it is always something really interesting and unique but we know that we will never see it elsewhere in the world. The latest smartphone from Fujitsu is no exception either as the Arrows F-04G is the first smartphone to pack an iris recognition authentication.

Apart from this, the device also has high end specifications. It has a 5.2″ display with 1440p resolution, Snapdragon 810 processor, Adreno 430 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage that is expandable using microSD cards. The device is powered by a 3120 mAH battery and it also has a 21 Megapixel camera at the back.

The iris scanner authentication feature is called Iris Passport and it takes just about half a second to unlock your device and all you have to do is just look at it. It can be used by any applications or payment authorizations that require passwords. Fujitsu say that the phone can even distinguish the eyes of twins and that it constantly learns more about your eyes and its patterns.

The device runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop. It is available for purchase through NTT Docomo at a price of around US$ 750 but is exclusive to Japan and odds are we won’t see it outside Japan but we really hope that we do.
