Sharp Aquos Crystal: Mid Range, Bezel-less

Posted by Sam Churchill on

Sprint today announced the Sharp Aquos Crystal, a mid-range handset that it will sell later this year for $239.

The Sharp Aquos features a nearly bezel-less design, with narrow edges running along the top and sides of the phone. The screen measures 5 inches and offers 720p HD resolution. The device offers a handful of software features developed by Sharp, including Clip Now, which takes screen shots with a swipe and Speaktoit Assistant, a natural language assistant that can perform a number of tasks.

The device runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat and features a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor with 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

The Aquos supports microSD cards up to 128GB. The camera captures 8-megapixel still images and 1080p HD video and a 1.2-megapixel camera for selfies. Sprint subsidiaries Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA will also sell the device, which goes on sale in the near future.

Phone Arena compares specs of the Sharp Aquos Crystal vs Galaxy S5 vs One (M8) for Windows. HTC’s One M8 Windows Phone is only on Verizon at $99 on-contract.
