Sharp X1 Is Yet Another Contender In The Android One Series, Exclusive To Japan

It is a well known phenomena that Google's Android One lineup hasn't attracted many buyers and it doesn't get the popularity it should, with its stock Android experience and affordable price. Now, Google is trying to resurrect the series, with the new Sharp X1 - another contender in the Android One smartphone department.


This is the second Android One smartphone from the Japanese company, the first one being the Sharp Aquos, which was the first smartphone of its kind in Japan. The newer X1 features:
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 435
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB ROM
  • 5.3" FHD IGZO Display
  • 16MP Rear and 8MP Front camera
  • 3900mAh Battery
  • IP68 Rating
  • Front facing fingerprint scanner
  • USB Type-C connectivity
  • Android 7.0
The specs of the device seem quite decent. The device will be available in multiple colour options: White, Dark Purple and Mint Green. The design of the device seems to be a mixture of an iPhone and Pixel phone. The main highlight of the device, according to the company, is the battery. Sharp says the phone should last 4 days on one charge, which we highly doubt. The Sharp X1 has a Micro SD card slot for memory expansion. Sadly, the device is exclusive to Japan and will be sold by Y! Mobile there. With the Android One series having a very small market share, this device is crucial to keep the series alive.
