Sharp Unveils New Android One Waterproof Smartphone with 3GB RAM


Sharp has made a U-turn roughly a year after launching its first Android One smartphone, AQUOS 507SH, in Japan. The firm today has introduced its second smartphone bearing the Android One branding in its home country called X1.

Google's Android One project has been a success in most part of Asian and African countries in the past few years but its burning flame was lowered in recent months, we hardly heard about it this year, atleast since MWC when General Mobile refreshed its "GM" Android One phone line-up with GM6. Google has been thought to have abandoned the project, not anymore.

The Sharp X1 is mid-end in terms of specs as could be expected. It features a 5.3-inch IGZO display with full-HD (1920x1080) resolution and underneath its display board is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor running at a speed of 1.4GHz. The processor is complimented with a 3GB of RAM for good multitasking and with Adreno 505 GPU for above-average graphics handling.

The phone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and comes pre-loaded with Google Assistant. Being on Google special project, it is guaranteed to receive updates consecutively for two years, this means it is upgradeable to Android O. Moving on, the X1 has a built-in storage of 32GB that can be expanded via MicroSD card. It is waterproof and dustproof certified, and there is fingerprint sensor beneath its home button that supports Android Pay.

In optics, it sports a 16.4-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash while an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera sits on the top bezel above the display for taking selfie. Connectivity options included are Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi, 4G LTE, 3G, GPS, and USB Type-C. It is powered by a 3,900mAh battery capable of rendering up to four days of use in a single charge.

The Sharp X1 is exclusive to Japan only. We should know its pricing in coming days.
