Sharp Aquos Xx3 mini announced with a 4.7-inch FullHD display, Snapdragon 617
Sharp has announced the Aquos Xx3 mini smartphone in Japan. The unfortunately named device is otherwise pretty interestingly specced and is likely to entice compact phone fans.
For starters, it has a 4.7-inch FullHD IGZO display which makes for a 469ppi density, while the Sony Xperia X Compact sticks with 720p resolution on its 4.6-inch diagonal, hence 319ppi.
The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 617 chipset, its octa-core CPU coupled with 3GB of RAM. Internal storage is 16GB, but there's a microSD slot for when that inevitably gets filled up. The Aquos Xx3 mini is equipped with a 21MP primary camera with an f/1.9 aperture lens. On the front there's an 8MP shooter for selfies.
In the connectivity section the phone lists VoLTE, 4G LTE with speeds up to 187.5Mbps down and 37.5Mbps up, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, and NFC. Measuring 135x67x8.6mm, the phone weighs 135g, while packing a 2,400mAh battery.
Out of the box, the Xx3 mini will run on Android 7.0 Nougat. No wonder, since it will make it to stores four months from now in February 2017.
