The Sharp Aquos S3 was announced in March in Taiwan. It launched with a redesigned notch and a larger display but the same processor as the Aquos S2. If the chipset put you off then, you may want to check out the new high-end version that comes with a more powerful processor and more features.
The high-end Aquos S3 swaps the Snapdragon 630 for the Snapdragon 660 processor. It also bumps the RAM to 6GB and storage to 128GB. While the battery capacity is the same as the base model, Sharp has added support for wireless charging (7.5W).
There are still dual cameras (12MP + 13MP) with support for 2x lossless zoom on the back of the phone. It also keeps the 16MP front camera. There is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, Face Unlock, dual SIM support, and Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging.
It also has NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 and runs Android 8.0 with Sharp’s Smile UX on top. The high-end version is a bit heavier at 167.4g compared to the base model which weighs 165.4g.
Sharp has put a price tag of NTD 13,990 (~$470) on the high-end version of the Aquos S3. It will go on sale on June 11.
