Aquos Xx Is Sharp’s New ‘Bezel-Less’ Flagship

May 19, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Earlier today, we wrote about the Sharp Aquos Crystal 2 handset which got listed by SoftBank in Japan. Well, that’s not the only device that was listed by that Japan-based company it seems, Aquos Xx is yet another device which popped up there. We’ll talk about it in a second, let’s skim over the Aquos Crystal 2 real quick. The Aquos Crystal 2 is a successor to the Aquos Crystal ‘bezel-less’ handset which was announced by this company last year. The Aquos Crystal 2 isn’t a huge improvement over its predecessor, but it does offer a bigger display and somewhat improved internals. The device will go on sale in July this year, so stay tuned for that.

That being said, the Aquos Xx is a very interesting device, and Sharp’s new flagship by the way. The Aquos Xx features a 5.7-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) S-CG LCD display along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (expandable up to 128GB). This handset is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor which ships with an Adreno 430 GPU for graphics. The 3,000mAh battery is also a part of this package, and Android 5.0 Lollipop comes pre-installed on this handset. The 13-megapixel camera (CMOS sensor) is located on the back of Sharp’s new flagship, and a 2-megapixel snapper (CMOS sensor) is available on the front side of this handset. This handset offers 4G LTE connectivity, measures 146 x 79 x 8.7mm and weighs 16 grams.

The Sharp Aquos Xx sports a rather interesting design, and it looks really sleek. It looks like a polished version of Aquos Crystal / Crystal 2. The bezel is almost non-existent on the sides and above the display, and it has a chin below the display, but the chin looks far better this time around. The chin is rather thin and… well, it doesn’t look half bad, at least compared to the Aquos Crystal and Crystal 2 where its very much noticeable. The Aquos Xx will go on sale in June 2015 and will be available in Black, White and Red color options. You can check out all of these color variants in the gallery down below.
