Qualcomm products mentioned within this post are offered by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.
The recently announced Sharp AQUOS Crystal smartphone has an approximately 5-inch, 720p LCD screen with practically no bezel, the area which normally surrounds a phone’s display, making it an effectively “frameless” visual experience.
The AQUOS Crystal is powered by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 processor running Android 4.4.2 (KitKat). Other specifications include an 8-megapixel camera, 1.5GB RAM, 8GB of storage (with a micro SD slot for up to 128GB memory expansion), and a 2040mAh battery.
While the showstopper on this 4.9-ounce phone is certainly the novel edge-to-edge HD screen, the AQUOS Crystal also boasts HD Voice and impressive audio thanks to Harman Kardon technology. Harman Kardon’s LiveStage adds a lifelike depth of sound to any headphone listening experience, and Clari-Fi vitalizes the quality of compressed digital music for enhanced realism and fidelity.
For the social mavens out there, a clever feature called Clip Now takes a screenshot by just swiping a finger across the top edge of the phone. The picture is then automatically saved with an embedded URL for easy sharing.
