Some of the world’s most beautiful smartphones of the past year have ironically come from one of the smaller players in the smartphone world. Sharp, a company name not normally tied with smartphone manufacture, has today announced another breathtakingly beautiful device to add to its lineup, this time the 5.7-inch phablet, the Sharp AQUOS Xx. Much like the Sharp AQUOS Crystal before it (which Stormy took a look at last year), the Sharp AQUOS Xx also has a bezel-less frame, featuring almost no screen-to-edge gap on its top and side edges.
Unlike the Sharp AQUOS Crystal, however, the Sharp AQUOS Xx won’t have mid-range specs – the device was announced with a Snapdragon 810 and 3GB inside, as well as shipping with Android Lollipop. Probably the only disappointing part of this package is the 1080p display, which would need to be 2K to stay toe-to-toe with other devices in its class, but who’s counting pixels anyway when you’ve got that bezel-less frame, am I right? Sharp has so far only announced availability of the Sharp AQUOS Xx in Japan, though we hope it makes the jump to other regions like its predecessor did.
