Sharp has announced the addition of a new mid-range to its fleet of smartphones. Dubbed the Sharp Aquos S3 High-end edition, the new entrant is a modified variant of the base Sharp Aquos announced back in May.
The device retains virtually all the specs and design of the Aquos S3, albeit an upgraded Snapdragon 660 with the same 6GB of RAM, while the storage has also doubled to 128GB. The Sharp Aquos S3 High-end edition retains the base S3 3200mAh battery but has now ditched the wired Quick Charge 3.0 for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and 7.5W Qi Wireless Charging.
Other specs are largely the same with the Sharp Aquos S3, and as a reminder, the Aquos S3 sports a notched 6-inch FHD+ display with 91% screen-to-body ratio and 32GB of internal storage. It gets a 12-megapixel primary rear camera with f/1.75 aperture, 1.4um pixel size, dual-tone LED flash, 13-megapixel secondary camera for portrait shots and 2x loss-less zoom, while it bears a 16-megapixel front camera with support for face unlock that scans 1024 facial points to unlock the phone in 0.1 seconds.
The device boots Android Oreo out of the box, supports dual hybrid SIM with a full host of connectivity feature including 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth 5, GPS + GLONASS, NFC, and USB Type-C.
The device goes on sale from June 11 in Black colour only at the NT$ 13,990 (US$ 570 / Rs. 31,571 approx.)
