The sharp FS8018 made headlines earlier in the month when it surfaced on Geekbench benchmarking site with sets of specs and features that put it in the upper mid-range segment of the smartphone market. The device which is rumored to be named Sharp Aquos S3 – the successor to the Sharp Aquos S2 has now popped up on TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC), a true indication that the device will indeed sell in China and may launch soon.
A careful look at the images from TENAA indicates that the device may come with a display notch similar to the one on the Essential PH-1 as indicated by its centrally placed selfie shooter. The device appears to be made entirely of metal glass body with a physical home button and a single rear camera.
As per information available on TENAA, the Sharp FS8018 will flaunt a 5.48-inch 2040 x 1080 display and powered by an unnamed SOC with a 2.2GHz 64-bit octa-core processor coupled with 4 GB/6 GB RAM and 64 GB/128 GB storage. Other specs and features as revealed by TENAA include a 16 MP camera on the back, a massive 20 MP snapper on the front, Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS, and a 2,930 mAh non-removable battery.
We currently do not have information about release date, pricing, and availability, but we should get to know more about the device in the coming days.
