NTT DoCoMo announced its winter lineup, which consists of 16 new (for the carrier, at least) models, including the Samsung Galaxy S III, Note II and the Sony Xperia AX. The real attention grabber is the Sharp Aquos Zeta SH-02E, which promises to give the LG Optimus G a run for its money.
The Aquos Zeta has a 4.9" 720p IGZO TFT display (a world's first, IGZO is supposed to be more power-efficient) and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 chipset with quad-core Krait CPU at 1.5GHz and Adreno 320 graphics. The Sharp SH-02 will launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The main camera on the phone is a 16MP shooter with LED flash and there's a 1.2MP front-facing camera.
On the connectivity side there's LTE (100Mbps/37.5Mbps up/down) and NFC with mobile payment support. The Sharp Aquos Zeta will also support both 1seg and NOTTV broadcasting.
The phone will have a large capacity battery (2000+mAh or more, the specs sheet didnít give the exact number) and will be both dust and waterproof (IP57, IP5X).
The Sharp Aquos Zeta SH-02E is expected to launch in November or December.
