Sharp’s New Android Phone: Waterproof Body, 4.5-Inch 3D QHD Display, 12MP Cam, DLNA

Sharp has been producing quite a few nice Android phones for the Japanese market lately (with a 25% share, it’s the leading manufacturer over here), and today, the company introduced [JP] another great-looking handset, the AQUOS PHONE 102SH.

Local carrier SoftBank will start distributing the phone in Japan in December as part of its fall/winter line-up. And there can be now doubt that subscribers can get a real monster with this model.

Here are the main specs:

  • Android 2.3
  • 4.5-inch naked-eye 3D LCD screen with 720×1280 resolution and 329dpi pixel density
  • 12MP CMOS camera with full HD video recording
  • compatible with SoftBank’s “Ultra Speed” high-speed data communication service (max. 21Mbps)
  • TI OMAP4430 dual-core CPU (1GHz)
  • RAM: 1GB, ROM: 2.2GB
  • waterproof body (IPX5/7, IP5X)
  • IEEE802.11b/g/n Wifi
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • DLNA support
  • microSDHC card slot
  • infrared connection
  • e-wallet function
  • digital TV tuner
  • size: 128×65×9.7mm, weight: 135g

Will this phone ever make it outside Japan? Maybe: back in May, Sharp said they would introduce the AQUOS PHONE worldwide at some point in the future…
