Sharp is coming back to the mobile industry, slowly, but surely. The company has introduced a couple of devices over the last few months, Sharp Aquos Crystal in 2 variants, a 5-inch mid-range version and a 5.5-inch high-end variant of the device. Sharp SH-04F has been launched as well lately. Sharp will also mass produce 600PPI displays, I believe those are already in production but I can’t confirm that at this point. Meizu’s MX4 Pro will allegedly sport one of those panels, but we’ll see. Those panels they’re making sound really promising and I can’t wait to see one in person.
This Japanese company seems to be taking all the right steps lately. They just launched yet another device in Japan, this time in collaboration with Japanese Telecom NTT Docomo. Sharp Aquos Zeta SH-01G (truth be told, they have to improve when it comes to naming their devices) is a high-end device. It sports a 5.5-inch IGZO 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 2GB of RAm and 32GB of internal storage (expandable via MicroSD card). The device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz. 13.1-megapixel camera is located at the back of the device and it is sporting a CMOS sensor, LED flash and a 4K video recording capability. 2.1-megapixel camera can be found at the front of this device for your video calls, selfies and what not. Aquos Zeta SH-01G works on XI of Docomo and supports download speeds up to 150mbps and 50mbps upload speeds. This device is also equipped with Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA, GPS with GLONASS and a MicroUSB. 3.5mm audio jack is, of course, also present and this handset measures 141 x 76 x 8.9mm. Android 4.4 KitKat comes pre-installed and a 2,800mAh battery is here to make sure the phone lasts you throughout the day. This device comes in Indigo, White, Cyan and Coral color options. The device will go on sale in November.
This doesn’t sound bad at all, quite on the contrary, the device seems great on paper and it looks just fine in my humble opinion. What do you think?
