Sharp Aquos Phone SH930W brings 5" 1080p display to Russia
Sharp is obviously keen to join the 1080p screen fun on as the company just announced its first smartphone with a 5" FullHD screen for Russia. The Aquos Phone SH930W uses a Sharp IGZO display, which offers improved image quality over regular LCDs along with better power efficiency. The pixel density stands at the retina-busting 440ppi.
The other specs of the phone aren’t quite that impressive with a Qualcomm 8260A chipset (2x Krait @ 1.5GHz, Adreno 225) powering the package. According to GLBenchmark 2.5, the GPU isn't powerful enough to run heavy 3D games at native resolution as it only manages 13.6fps.
On the upside, the SH930W runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and offers a microSD card slot. It comes with 2G/3G connectivity, but no LTE.
The Sharp Aquos Phone SH930W will launch in Russia on November 8 (though there's no info on the price just yet). Unlike most of Sharp's phones (and the HTC J Butterfly), this one has a good chance of getting a wider availability.
Thanks to Dmitriy for the tip!
