Sharp today presented a new smartphone in Japan - Sharp S7 is a mid-range phone with Android One and a battery that will ensure the device's work even for a week without a charger.
Sharp S7 is actually a slightly modified model Aquos Sense 3 Lite, which has less RAM and internal memory, it is also without a fingerprint scanner. It is worth adding that it works as part of the Android One program, which means guaranteed monthly security updates for Android (for 2 years) and two system updates in 3 years.
The smartphone has a 5.5-inch IGZO LCD screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The device drives the Snapdragon 630 processor along with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. S7 has a single main camera (12 MP, f/2.0) and an 8-megapixel selfie camera (f/2.2). Electronic image stabilization (EIS) and AI functions are available to help you take better pictures. In addition, it is dust- and waterproof and shockproof.
S7 has a 4000 mAh battery, but there is no mention of fast charging. Sharp claims that thanks to the energy-saving IGZO display technology, battery life can increase up to 1 week. High battery capacity and unimpressive specifications also contribute to this. However, the week on a single charge sounds nice only in marketing materials - in practice, such a working time is provided for the scenario in which the device is used for an hour during the day - and the remaining day is in standby mode.
The smartphone will be available exclusively for the Japanese Y network! mobile in the second half of December 2019. It will be available in gold, silver and gray. The suggested price is unknown at this time.
