Sharp’s 1080p Android Jelly Bean phone priced, compared to Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X+
First seen earlier this month, the Sharp Aquos SH930W is the Japanese company’s only smartphone to have a Full HD (1920 x 1080) display. And, of course, it’s also one of the first in the world to sport such a screen.
We already told you that the SH930W would be released in Russia. And now we’re hearing it’s going to be available in Hong Kong, too, starting next month (December).
Sharp Hong Kong has put together some promo material that shows the SH930W next to some other high-end Android smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S III, Note II, and HTC One X+. Thanks to its 5 inch 1080p display (and the thinner bezel), the SH930W certainly looks more attractive. But Sharp should have compared it to the HTC Droid DNA – since this is the only one to also feature a 5 inch 1080p screen. Well, maybe next time.
The Sharp Aquos SH930W runs Android Jelly Bean, and comes with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and 32GB of internal memory. It will cost 4,488 HKD in Hong Kong – hence about $580. That’s significantly lower than the price for the Russian market (21,990 RUB – $712). It remains to be seen if Sharp will want to introduce the handset in other markets.
