A new series of Aquos seems to be emerging in this Summer 2015 collection on Docomo, the Aquos Ever, with the SH-04G smartphone.

The SH-04G comes with a 5.0-inch screen, HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution, and does not utilise the IGZO display technology. Despite not using the idling-stop LCD technology, Sharp promise a three full days of usage in a single charge of its 2,450 mAh battery.

It is actually a rather underpowered device and ranks somewhere in the low-end spectrum: It is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor (Snapdragon 400 MSM8926), has 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of installed storage (expandable by SDXC cards). The processor supports LTE connectivity of up to 150 mbps and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.

For this model, Sharp have decided to discard both One- and Full Seg television, as well as NOTTV. Bluetooth and infrared connectivity are supported.

The camera is 13.1 megapixels and has the Night Catch feature for low-light photography but the aperture size is, expectedly, not the f/1.9 value that carrier-branded models flaunt. Real-time HDR is supported as well as time-lapse photography (1 to 10-second intervals). Other features include the Framing Advisor that does indeed help achieve a better image composition, and the continuous shooting feature, as well as Photosphere and Panorama shooting. The inner camera is 2.1 MP with face-detection and one-touch self-timer. The main camera can capture video of up to Full HD (1920 x 1080 px).

The installed Android version is 5.0.2 Lollipop.

The radio frequencies the SH-04G supports are as follows:
LTE: 800 MHz (Band 19), 1.5 GHz (Band 21), 1.7 GHz (Band 3), 2.0 Ghz (Band 1).
3G: 800 MHz2.0 GHz
GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz.

The Aquos Ever SH-04G measures 133 (W) x 71 (W) x 9.7 (D) mm, weighs 139 grams, uses nanoUIM cards, and is available in gold, pink, white, and black. It is waterproof (IPX5/7), as usual.
