New release: AQUOS PHONE SERIE with IGZO <Attachment 1>

An amazing 3 days [2] with IGZO [1].
- SERIE makes you forget to check the time. -

Do what you want, as long as you want. Amazing power conserving IGZO & high capacity 3,080 mAh battery.

  • Like automotive fuel efficient technology, IGZO suppresses CPU display operation during still image display and provides an environment in which the liquid crystal only operates 1 time per second, resulting in a dramatic suppression of battery consumption. Users who frequently use communication services that are popular amongst smartphone users like LINE and Facebook will especially be pleased with the joy of a long battery life.

No more frustration with dim displays. Smartphone top class bright lens (F1.9)

  • The F1.9 bright lens expands the range of photos you can take in dark environments without needing a flash and retains natural color. What's more, Sharp's original noise reduction system does away with the noise that is common in dark environments for clear photo images. And the lens achieves brightness at approximately 1.6 times standard [3], giving users a faster shutter speed and a more instantaneous response time.
  • With a high speed camera startup time of approximately 0.4 seconds (preliminary value) [4], you won't have to miss out on those important moments.

User-friendliness you can get used to. Just sweep, grip, and call up app names for luxurious convenience.

  • The Aquos Phone Serie does away with all those smartphone pet peeves with features like the Sweep ON function that lets you turn your phone on with a trace of the finger on the screen without having to search for the power button, the Shake OFF function that lets you turn the phone off by simply shaking it, the Bright Keep function that keeps the display from disappearing as long as you hold the phone in your hand, and the Finger Step & Voice Awake function that lets you open up apps simply by tapping the device and saying the app name!
  • Features the Another View function with a 2 screen display made possible through a super high speed quad core CPU. Watch 1Seg and browse at the same time.
  • Features the Personal Collect Board that lets you use the phone as a tabletop clock. Check important info like the weather, your schedule, and SNS features with a glance.
  • Equipped with a direct wave receiver that lets you enjoy clear phone communication without worrying where to put your ear, even in crowds.
  • Comes with a tabletop holder that lets you recharge the battery even with the separately sold body cover attached [5].
