It’s been a long time ago since Sharp delivered a phone in the United States (recall this thing?) yet it would appear that that lack in might soon be over. The Japanese hardware titan simply pulled back the screen on a couple of smartphones that scarcely have bezels, and one of them is slated to land here eventually. Sharp’s Aquos Crystal X is the more great of the two – aside from the way that there’s barely any material circling its 5.5 inch 1080p display, there’s a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 ticking without end inside its 10mm thick frame. Oh, its the less-powerfull Aquos Crystal that is normal think that its way stateside. There still aren’t any bezels to talk about, yet it packs a similarly insignificant 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 and a 5 inch 720p display, anticipate that the price sticker will reflect those unequivocally mid-range aspirations.
It’s shocking enough to see Sharp outfitting to re-enter the packed US smartphone market, however what’s truly astounding is that we’re not getting some arbitrary one-off devices like the Sharp FX this time. It may not be the most noteworthy of the two, however the Aquos Crystal still would appear to be a fascinating decision for an company that hasn’t generally put its best foot forward around these parts. Sprint hasn’t authoritatively affirmed it’ll offer the Crystal, yet it looks an appalling parcel like a lock right now. For example: the carrier is holding a press event in New York tomorrow night, and its welcome is overflowing with crystalline imagery and a punch line that corresponds with the Aquos’ bezel-less screen.
