Sharp’s Aquos S3 Mini smartphone features a mid-range Snapdragon 630 Soc and looks like the Essential Phone!
Japanese manufacturer Sharp introduced their mid-range device, the Aquos S3 Mini back in March of 2018. The Sharp Aquos S3 Mini is powered by a mid-range grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC coupled with an Adreno 508 GPU aided by 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. Thankfully, a dedicated MicroSD card slot (hybrid solution: either SIM 2 or MicroSD card) that can handle cards of up to 256GB in size is available in the device for expanded storage. Providing visuals is a notched 5.5in 1080 X 2040 pixels Full HD+ IGZO IPS LCD display with an aspect ratio of 17:9 and a fine enough pixel density of 420 PPI. A fingerprint scanner is embedded in the home button.
Photography is handled by a single camera setup at the rear featuring a 16MP (f/2.0 lens) (PDAF) assisted by an LED flash. A 20MP (f/2.0) selfie shooter is present upfront for selfieholics out there. The rear and front-facing cameras can record videos at a resolution of to 1080p @ 30fps.
