Sharp Rolls Out AQUOS Phone With 8MP Twin 3D Cameras, Naked-Eye 3D QHD Display, Android 2.3

It’s not the first 3D smartphone from Sharp, but the AQUOS PHONE SH-12C big S unveiled [JP] is much cooler (if you think 3D in a phone is really necessary, that is). The company simply seems to have squeezed in everything they have into the Android device.

Here are the main bullet points:

  • Android 2.3
  • two 8MP CMOS cameras
  • 3D video recording in 720×1280 resolution (shooting 3D pictures is naturally possible, too)
  • 3.2-inch front camera
  • 4.2-inch naked-eye 3D display with 960×540 resolution (“QHD”)
  • interfaces: HDMI, microSD
  • Wi-Fi (tethering is possible), GPS, Bluetooth, infrared
  • e-wallet function
  • digital TV tuner
  • size: 127×64×11.9~13.8mm, weight: 138g

Sharp plans to start offering the AQUOS PHONE SH-12C in Japan on May 20 (in black and white). The company hasn’t said anything about pricing and possible plans for international distribution yet.
