Sharp has announced a new smartphone running Google Android OS called Aquos phone IS14SH. Featuring a 3.7 inch touchscreen display, this smartphone is actually a slider device and features a multi-tap keypad. The new Aquos Phone IS14SH runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Sharp Aquos IS14SH may be released for other regions in the coming months but at the moment it is available only in Japan. The device has a 3.7 inch touchscreen display with qHD (960 x 540 pixel) resolution and support for 260,000 colors. There’s no information about the processor used in the handset but the phone houses 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB on-board storage. The touchscreen panel slides up to reveal a multi-tap keypad.
Aquos IS14SH features an 8 megapixel camera that can record 720p HD videos. Under the hood lies a Bluetooth 3.0 sensor with WiFi (802.11 b/g/n) capabilities.
Surprisingly, Sharp has packed only a 1030 mAh battery with this smartphone, which may last about 6 hours. Sharp has designed and styled this Aquos IS14SH handset as a feature phone and it may work with the youth, who are still struggling to move from a feature phone to a smartphone.
