One or two years ago, when the smartphone market seemed to be stagnating, we looked at Sharp for innovation and the Aquos series seemed to be real deal. In the meantime the likes of Samsung and LG started to innovate again and Sharp isn’t so impressive anymore. Well, they may just be the case again, if their new Aquos SERIE SHV34 handset is any good.
Having been recently certified by the FCC, the device comes with FDD and TD LTE, plus WiMax 2+, as a typical Japanese product does nowadays. It’s also been certified for Bluetooth and WiFi usage, coming with a/b/g/n/ac support and both bands. While we don’t have a clear specs list or a clear picture of the device, its diagram is very interesting.
It seems to reveal a sort of design that opens up, unless I’m reading too much into the sketches. It could end up a modular phone, something new for Sharp and the diagrams certainly don’t do it justice, seeing how the latest Aquos models have all had ultra narrow frames.
