The Sharp Aquos S3 which was set to launch on March 28th has now been made official and will go on sale in Taiwan starting April 1 in a black colored variant. The Aquos S3 is priced at NTD 11,990 (approx. Rs 26,700) and brings in a compact 6-inch smartphone that runs on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo with dual rear cameras and an AI-based front-facing snapper.

 

Talking about the design, the Sharp Aquos S3 measures in at 148.2mm x 74.2mm and is thinner than the 6-inch flagship LG V30. The device comes with a 6-inch IPS FHD+ LCD panel with a resolution of 2280×1080 pixels and a tall aspect ratio of 18:9. The 91 percent screen-to-body ratio display has a notch cut out at the top for the 16-megapixel selfie unit and earpiece, which at first glance looks a lot like the iPhone X.
