Sharp aren't a big player in the smartphone market, but the company are set to launch their new flagship smartphone, the Aquos Phone Zeta SH-02E on November 29.

The new smartphone from Sharp will be their first phone to sport the IZGO-based display that will spread itself across a 4.9-inch, 720p LCD display. We should see Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich melt its way into the heart of the SH-02E.

The Japan-bound smartphone will sport Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro, a 16-megapixel camera and LTE capabilities. Unfortunately Sharp weren't the first to the market with their new IGZO display, with that medal going to ASUS and their Padfone 2.

With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
