Japan’s mobile carriers are currently releasing a number of interesting handsets, which are all part of their summer 2011 line-up. While smartphones, the iPhone and Android in particular, are taking over the Japanese market, there are still some cool feature phones coming out, too.

Here’s the main spec list:
- 3.4-inch/naked-eye 3D touch display with 480×854 resolution
- 0.8-inch OLED sub-display
- 16.3MP CMOS sensor
- camera: special mobile Exilim engine, full HD video recording, 3D picture display, 3x digital zoom, LED flash
- DLNA support
- YouTube connectivity
- Wi-Fi IEEE802.11n, Bluetooth, infrared connection
- e-wallet function
- digital TV tuner
- dust-and waterproof body
- microSDHC slot, HDMI interface
- battery: 220 minutes continuous talk time, 560 hours stand-by on 3G
