Sharp Aquos Crystal X is the upcoming bezelless high-end phone
The Sharp Aquos Crystal has amazed many with its bezelless display and unconventional design, but the fact that the phone itself is a bit more fragile might have put some people off. Nonetheless, the Sharp Aquos Crystal X is in the works and should be a new release from the company with an even better spec sheet to please those who crave for high-end phones. Even though these types of unconventional handsets tend to attract the Asian market more than the U.S., the Sharp Aquos Crystal managed to break barriers and slip into the U.S. and bring its bezelless display to the front lines of smartphone design.
The Sharp Aquos Crystal X is the successor of the bezelless smartphone and should be an even more innovative handset. According to a Japanese press release, the Sharp Aquos Crystal X should be an upgraded version of the initial release with better specs and design. The Sharp Aquos Crystal X release date is unknown at the moment for the U.S., but since it has already been made available in Japan for pre-order, we do expect the new design to show up in the States soon.
The Sharp Aquos Crystal X is a high-end device, which means that it’s a worthwhile upgrade compared to its mid-range predecessor. Putting high-end specs in such an unconventional phone will surely attract a whole lot in the U.S. and in Europe as well. The Sharp Aquos Crystal X specs include a 5.5 inch display with a 1080*1920 resolution, which is a considerable bump compared to its predecessor. Other great specs for the device include Harmon Kardon sound, which is impressive indeed, VoLTE, a Snapdragon 801 CPU backed by 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, as well as a 13 MP primary shooter with LED flash and a 1.2 MP secondary camera. The Sharp Aquos Crystal X battery is a 2610 mAH one, which should provide enough juice for the large HD display. Android 4.4 KitKat will be the OS out of the box, so you should be content with what Google can offer you through that.
The Sharp Aquos Crystal X is one of the most compact phablets you’ll get your hands on and should attract many customers who are into the whole bezelless, practical smartphone design. Even though the Sharp Aquos Crystal X price hasn’t been revealed yet, we can estimate based on the pricing of its predecessor that it would be around $450. The handset will be available in pink/red, white and black. If you are the kind of person who would rather have an unconventional phone like the Sharp Aquos Crystal X rather than a high-end flagship like the Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 or Sony Xperia Z3, you’ll surely be impressed with the design and footprint of the device.
