It looks like Sharp could be back on the radar with its Aquos Phone Xx, which pushes the screen right to the boundary of the phone. The Aquos Phone Xx pushes 80.5% of its 5.2-inch front to screen real estate, which leaves very little bezel.
The Xx is just 70 x 132 x 9.9mm, so we're in phablet territory here. The Sharp Aquos Phone Xx is a 4G LTE-capable smartphone, which features a 1080p display, 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 SoC, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 2,600mAh battery, a 16.3-megapixel rear-facing camera with f/1.9 lens, and features a water-resistant frame.
Sharp will launch the Aquos Phone Xx in Japan soon, with no word on whether it is going to take a swim across the pond and arrive in any other countries.
