During an event in New York City overnight, Sharp unveiled its new Aquos Crystal smartphone, which will hit Sprint and its pre-paid Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile brands. It's a mid-range smartphone with some slightly redeeming features, such as its barely there bezel.




The Sharp Aquos Crystal has a 5-inch 1280x720 - or 720p - display, with barely any bezels at the top and sides. Inside, we have a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of flash storage, and a 2040mAh battery. On the back and front we have an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and 1.2-megapixel camera up front. For the software side of things, we have Android 4.4.2 KitKat.




Sharp has also provided Harman's LiveStage, which "adds dimension to the sound" according to Android Central, who went hands-on with the device in NYC. There's also Clari-Fi technology which "improves digital sound quality by restoring all types of compressed digital music". If you want to get your hands-on the Sharp Aquos Crystal, it'll cost you $0 down on a 24-month contract of $10 on Sprint Easy Pay. Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile will be offering the smartphone for $149.99 plus tax.
