The Aquos Serie mini SHV33 is the same device Sharp released in December 2015 on SoftBank, as Aquos Xx2 mini (503SH) and as the Docomo Aquos Compact SH-02H.

The Aquos Serie mini SHV33 has very narrow top and size bezel (EDGEST series) to ensure maximum screen surface for its 4.7-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080px) screen, which uses the new 120 Hz high-speed IGZO display that guarantees extra smooth rendering of fast moving objects.

The main camera is also the same as that on the Docomo SH-01H and SH-02H, and the Softbank Aquos Xx2 and Xx2 mini: 13.1-megapixel, OISRICOH GR-certified professional single focus digital camera series. Specifications: f/1.9, BrightEye, real-time HDR, Night Catch II, 4K2K video, 120 fps in Full HD and 210 fps in FWVGA resolution, super slow motion video of 2100 fps in FWVGA and 1200 fps in Full HD. The inner camera is 5 MP with auto focus and wide-angle shooting, the same as the one found on the Aquos Compact SH-02H and Aquos Xx mini.

The processor on the Aquos Serie mini SHV33 is the 64-bit hexa-core Qualcomm MSM8992 that has two 1.8 GHz cores and four 1.4 GHz cores. The amount of RAM is 3 GB, the ROM is 16 GB, expandable to up to 200 GB using microSDXC cards.

This processor allows Carrier Aggregation, or the simultaneous use of both 4G LTE (800 MHz, 1.7 GHz, and 2 GHz) and WiMAX2+ for high speed data communication. Also supported are 3G at 2 GHz. GSM frequencies may be supported as part of the GLOBAL PASSPORT functionality.

The device is naturally waterproof (IPX5 / IPX8) and dustproof (IP6X).

Only One-Seg digital TV is supported, not Full-Seg.

Other features include Felica mobile wallet, VoLTE, Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11a / b / g / n / ac, Bluetooth 4.1, rapid charging, etc.

Originally released with Android 5.1, the SHV33 received an upgrade to Android 6.0 in the end of November 2016. The upgrade to Android 7.0 rolled out on 15 May 2017.

The battery is 2810 mAh. The Aquos Serie SHV33 is offered in four colour versions: scarlet, white, sapphire, and black. Its dimensions are 126 × 66 × 8.9 mm and it weighs 121 grams.
