Two Sharp phones popped up on TENAA in the last days of December. A variant of the phone was also certified in Taiwan, confirming the name Aquos S3. The manufacturer now followed that up by sending invitations to a press, event on January 16.
Mini version of the Sharp Aquos S3 is also expected to be announced since the name was leaked on a Google Play support page where the model name matches previous leaks.
The Sharp Aquos S3 will have a 5.99” screen with 18:9 ratio and Full HD+ resolution. Like the current Aquos S2, the new phone will most likely have two versions - one with Snapdragon 630, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage and a more powerful one with Snapdragon 660, 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage.
The dual camera setup of the Aquos S3 is expected to be 12 MP + 13 MP, while the selfie shooter will have a 16 MP sensor. Arriving with Android Nougat and 3100 mAh battery, the phone should come only in Black.
The Aquos S3 mini is expected to have the same display like the Aquos S2 - 5.48” in diagonal with a resolution of 2040 x 1080 pixels and a tiny notch on the front for a 20 MP selfie camera. On the back, there will be only one cam with 16 MP sensor.
Pricing and availability of both devices will be revealed in two weeks at the launch event.
