Sharp Aquos SH930W Will Be Released Mid-December

Earlier last month, we heard that Sharp was dipping its toes into the world of Android, and now we get to see what kind of product they’re bringing into the smartphone wars.

Sharp’s Android device, known as the Sharp Aquos SH930W is equipped with a full HD screen attached on a body with a thin bezel. It’s definitely a beautiful phone, but does it have the specs to compete with the big dogs?  The Aquos features the following specs:

  • 1920 x 1080p HD 443 PPI 5-inch display
  • 2GB of ram
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 2MP front facing camera
  • 32GB of storage
  • 2,100 mAh battery
  • Sadly, only a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor.
  • Lacks 4G LTE
The lack of a quad-core processor may be a deal-breaker now that quad-core processors are becoming the new, coveted spec. However a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor is still great on its own and who knows, maybe this new Sharp phone will be able to compete with some of the top phones. We would have loved to see how Sharp’s 1080p phone compared with the HTC Droid DNA, but unfortunately Sharp decided not to compare the two.

According to the leaked training material from ePrice, the Sharp Aquos SH930W is set to debut in mid-December, starting with Japan. It will also be priced around $580. It is still uncertain which regions will receive the Sharp Aquos, but let’s hope it makes its way on over to the US.
