No-bezel Sharp Aquos Crystal and Crystal X officially announced
In the race to get an edge-to-edge display smartphone it seems like Sharp has reached the finish first with their newly announced Sharp Aquos Crystal and Aquos Crystal X smartphones. Both have nearly no bezels making it seem like the smartphones are nearly all panel but there is still a metal side casing for each. Tech specs are quite high end with the Sharp Aquos Crystal X offering a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and 5.5-inch display with full HD 1080p pixel resolution. The Aquos Crystal X measures in at 139 x 73 x 11m which may not be very thin but is certainly compact for a 5.5-inch display smartphone. The Sharp Aquos Crystal offers tech specs that include a 1.2GHZ quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB RAM, 8GB storage, 5-inch display with 720p pixel resolution, 2040 mAh battery and Harmon Kardon audio technologies. The Aquos Crystal is even more compact at 131 x 67 x 10mm with both smartphones set for release in Japan and eventually the US. No Malaysia release dates or pricing yet, but we expect more bezel-less smartphones to come soon.
