Japan’s largest mobile operator, NTT DoCoMo, unveiled a new line of advanced mobile phones Wednesday with stereo-quality surround sound, high-resolution digital cameras and a special chip that allows owners to use their phones as a debit card.

DoCoMo (DCM) said the latest line of five phones will be rolled out in stages, starting Nov. 26 with a model by Sharp.

Three of the phones will also include Sony’s FeliCa smart chip that can store financial and personal information. The chip is intended to replace cash, credit cards, identification cards and electronic plane or train tickets.
