New Android phone has a killer security feature the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 can’t match

Fujitsu Arrows NX F-04G Iris-Scanning Smartphone

Chances are you’ve never cared about any smartphone that Fujitsu has ever released, and with good reason: There’s never been anything close to a noteworthy Fujitsu phone ever. However, the company’s new Arrows NX F-04G Android phone, which it’s releasing in conjunction with Japanese carrier NTT Docomo, is actually worthy of your attention.

The reason for this is because the new device is actually the first smartphone in the world to implement iris-scanning technology, which is considered a much more secure and reliable biometric technology for smartphones than the fingerprint-scanning technology used both on the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S6. Samsung is also working on incorporating iris-scanning technology into its devices but it looks like Fujitsu has beaten its Korean rival to the punch.

In addition to the iris scanner, the new Fujitsu phone also features some killer specs, including a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor, a 20.7-megapixel camera, a 3,120mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop. These high-end specs don’t guarantee a quality smartphone experience, of course, but it does seem that Fujitsu spared no expense in the hardware department for its newest device.
