Hana Hu, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Wednesday 16 October 2013]

Japan-based carrier Softbank unveiled recently its new smartphone portfolio for the upcoming 2013-2014 winter/spring selling season, reducing the number of new models to four compared to eight released a year earlier, while focusing on support of hybrid 4G LTE high-speed data communication services, according to Digitimes Research.

Three out of the four models – the Fujitsu Arrows A 301F, Sharp Aquos Xx mini 303SH and the Aquos Xx 302SH – are powered by a Qualcomm quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, making the CPU the mainstream.

With the exception of the Aquos Xx mini 303SH which has a 4.5-inch Full HD display, the other models pack a 5-inch or above Full HD display. The four models all support 4G LTE.

In addition to offering Softbank 4G LTE and Softbank 4G dual-mode hybrid 4G LTE services, Softbank also plans to include 4G LTE services on its 900MHz mobile network in April 2014, further enhancing its competitiveness for Internet services, said Digitimes Research.
