Sharp’s upcoming Aquos Phone SH930W was previously announced for the Russian market and now it also appears to be heading to Hong Kong soon. A source on ePrice has leaked the company’s internal slides for the device, confirming specs and other details we’ve heard through unofficial means before. The SH930W, as you may know by now, features a 5-inch 1080p Full HD display, Qualcomm MSM8260A Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 32GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, 2100mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean – a package that will cost around 4,488 HKD ($580 USD) when it launches in Hong Kong in December. Those are nice specs overall, though the Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset would have been a better choice to handle the 1080p FHD screen while using graphic-intensive applications or games. The disappointing 2100mAh battery will certainly struggle to keep that display and device powered throughout the day.
As you can see in the image gallery below, Sharp is not shy about comparing the handset to the Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Note II, LG Optimus Vu and HTC One X+. I suppose the absence of the HTC J Butterfly and Droid DNA in the slides is understandable, since those smartphones were also manufactured using Sharp’s 5-inch 1080p HD display technology. It’s unclear if a variant of the Sharp Aquos Phone SH930W will ever make it stateside.
