Sharp Aquos Phone SH930W headed to Russia with 5-inch 1080p touchscreen
Sharp is apparently about to announce the Aquos Phone SH930W for Russia on Thursday, November 8.
This smartphone (or rather, phablet) comes with the company’s famous very own 5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen and its 440+ ppi.
The display is also of the IGZO variety (indium gallium zinc oxide), which means it offers improved image quality and power efficiency compared to ‘vanilla’ LCDs.
The SH930W has a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (MSM8260A), support for 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS, a microSD card slot, and it runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
This is an interesting move for Sharp. So far it’s been selling its smartphones mainly in its home market of Japan. And the company is facing some very tough times. Perhaps it’s hoping it can make a name for itself in Russia, and that may help it a bit. We’ll see. For now, don’t expect (or hope) the SH930W to be sold anywhere else, though.
