Sharp Aquos S3 High Edition Specifications, Features and Price

Sharp launched the Aquos S3 smartphone back in March with Snapdragon 630 chipset and amazingly small body for a device with 6-inch tall screen.

And now, the Japanese company has unveiled an upgraded version of the smartphone which is powered by a more powerful chipset -Snapdragon 660 -, coupled with an RAM, 8 GB. The Sharp Aquos S3 High Edition phone has Qi wireless charging support.

Aside the new performance specs, the device stays with an IPS LCD of FullHD+ resolution. The camera setup is 12 MP + 13 MP with f/1.75 aperture. The front cam is 16 MP with a standard f/2.0 lens. They all support AI face recognition, as is the trend among smartphone manufacturers.

The Qi wireless charging can be used with any charging pad, but it supports only 7.5W, so the only fast-charge option for the 3,200 mAh power cell is the Quick Charge 3.0 over the USB-C port.
