Sharp Aquos Phone SL IS15SH is a smartphone that looks like a sliding featurephone from yesteryear

Sharp’s newest smartphone for its home market of Japan looks nothing like a smartphone. In fact, it reminds us of the once ubiquitous portrait-sliding featurephones such as the Samsung D600, which were very popular across the world a long time ago.

Perhaps taking inspiration from the fashion world, where everything old is always new again, Sharp decided to go with that funky look for the Aquos Phone SL IS15SH, made for KDDI. The smartphone runs Android 4.0, and features a sliding T9-like keyboard, as you can see.

It comes with a 3.7-inch qHD (540×960) touchscreen, a 1.4 GHz single-core processor, an 8 MP camera, a 0.3 MP front-facing camera, 4 GB of built-in storage space, microSD card support, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and a 1,430 mAh battery. Oh, and it’s dustproof and waterproof.

The Sharp-made Aquos Phone SL IS15SH will become available at KDDI on July 6.
