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.
