    4-million pixel camera, not 13 (unless they really customized the Japanese version compared to the global one)

    • akihabaranews

      Antoine, you are correct – it is a 4-million pixel camera. Thank you for pointing that out. I have corrected that.

  • Antoine B.

    If only Au KDDI accepted SIM free phones (and to unlock the phones they sell), like Docomo does now, I would most probably change carriers.

    On a different topic, this summer line-up looks a bit poor, don’t you think?
    Good thing they had the One to show, otherwise it would have been a complete disaster…

    • Testutama

      Even if Au did accept unlocked phones on their network their would still be the problem with incompatible phones. AU. Docomo, and softbanks phones all run on different bandwidths with only softbank having a network that matches overseas ones well (2100/900). Furthermore Au uses a CDMA 1X network which is not compatible with the standard WCDMA 3g networks used by docomo and softbank. Even Au’s 4g network runs on a separate bandwidth.

      Basically what this all means is that the only phones that will work well on the AU network are ones that have radios designed for it. That’s why their phone lineup tends to be the worst of the 3 major carriers.

    • Antoine B.

      Indeed, I was forgetting the famous CDMA-2000 legacy…
      In that case, except for buying a specifically compatible phone (which are pretty rare among the SIM free ones), it wouldn’t make sense…
      And LTE is even worse than 3G in that matter, with so many bands!

      Thanks for reminding.
