Fujitsu Launches ARROWS S EM01F

High-spec, water-resistant smartphone featuring a smooth touch-panel response and a stunning display

Tokyo, Aug 13, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced that the new ARROWS S (EM01F) from Fujitsu Mobile Communications will be available from EMOBILE stores and retailers across Japan from August 20, 2013.

Representing Fujitsu's first ARROWS model offered through EMOBILE, the ARROWS S (EM01F) runs on the ultrafast EMOBILE 4G-S data communications service(1) and features a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, offering users a seamless experience when enjoying a wide range of content. In addition, with a 4.7-inch HD display and cutting-edge picture enhancement technology, the phone is able to render all kinds of photos and video content in extremely high-resolution. The high-spec smartphone boasts a rich lineup of features including a high-capacity 2,420 mAh battery for extended use, Fujitsu's Human Centric Engine, and a high-performance 13.1 megapixel camera.

Faster communications speeds have enabled explosive growth in data-intensive content and services, such as high-definition video and next-generation game applications. For users to freely enjoy such content, however, smartphones need greater portability and ease of use through features such as a high-power CPU and high-resolution display. To accommodate these needs, ARROWS S (EM01F) brings together high-spec capabilities while also boasting a large 4.7-inch display that allows for an easy-to-hold 65 mm-wide handset design. The new phone is available in two colors: White and Black.

Product Features

1. Ultrafast "EMOBILE 4G-S" data communications
The new smartphone is capable of download speeds of up to 76Mbps via the EMOBILE 4G-S LTE network. This makes for easy downloading of videos, music content and other high-volume data.

2. "Pocket WiFi widget"
The EM01F features a one-touch Pocket WiFi widget tethering function that allows the phone to be easily used as a Wi-Fi router.

3. Quick responsiveness through a 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU
Equipped with a quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor, the EM01F's advanced processing power delivers a stress-free experience when accessing data-intensive content. It is also power efficient, helping to extend the handset's battery life.

4. Stunning graphics with 4.7-inch HD display
The smartphone's 1,280 x 720 pixel HD display employs Super Clear Panel, which eliminates the layer of air between the LCD and touch panel. This, in turn, reduces the amount of reflection and dispersion created by ambient light, allowing for even more vivid colors. The phone also features the latest high-performance graphics processing engine that enables advanced color correction and clear texture rendering. As a result, users can enjoy all kinds of visual content-including One-Seg broadcasts, videos, and still images from the phone's picture gallery-with natural and realistic colors and textures.

5. Human Centric Engine enables a richer and more convenient user experience
The new smartphone comes with the Fujitsu Human Centric Engine, which delivers optimal usability through cutting-edge sensing technology. The Human Centric Engine delivers convenient features such as 'Awaseru View,' which adjusts the display's color based on the user's age, and a support feature that prevents mistaken input from inadvertent touches, even if the user's fingers accidentally touch the edge of the screen.

6. High-capacity battery for extended use and "NX!eco" application
The handset comes equipped with a high-capacity 2,420 mAh battery, and by utilizing the included NX!eco application, which can integrate and configure separate power-saving settings, users can also enjoy the smartphone without having to worry about battery life.

7. High-performance 13.1 megapixel camera for capturing the perfect shot
The EM01F's camera employs an intuitive user interface and reduces blur and out-of-focus images, which can be encountered when capturing pictures in low light. As a result, even beginner users can easily take stunning photographs. With a launch time of about 0.5 seconds(2), users never miss out on capturing the perfect snapshot.

8. Full-spec capabilities
The smartphone comes loaded with a host of convenient features, including a scratch- and fingerprint-resistant "Ultra Toughguard plus" coating, water-resistant (IPX5/8) and dust-resistant (IP5X) technology(3), DLNA connectivity, One-Seg broadcasts, Osaifu-Keitai, and infrared communications.
