Sharp has announced a new smartphone in the Japanese market – the Sharp Aquos Xx3 Mini. The mid-ranger is the compact version of the Aquos Xx3 but comes with the current latest Android OS – Android 7.0 Nougat on-board. It will go on sale via local carrier – SoftBank in February 2017.
As expected the Sharp Aquos Xx3 Mini has a smaller 4.7-inch IGZO display with Full HD screen resolution but retains the S-Pure LED backlight, 2.5D curved glass screen, pixel density of 469ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. It measures 135 x 67 x 8.6 mm in dimensions and weighs in at 135 grams.
Under the hood, the device relies on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 (MSM8952) processor clocked at 1.5GHz paired along with Adreno 405 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 16GB built-in storage space (expandable up to 128GB via microSD). A 2500mAh battery, which should last up to a day of usage, supplies power.
In the camera segment, there is a rear facing 21MP camera with f/1.9 aperture along with a front facing 8MP camera for video chats and selfies. The Sharp Aquos Xx3 Mini supports 4G LTE networks, Dual Band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2 and micro USB port.
