Looks like Sharp China are going to roll out a "mini" version of the Aquos S3, too – the hint comes from the Google Play Supported Devices list, where it appears as the FS8018.

The Aquos S3 mini will have a 5.48-inch display with a FullHD+ resolution of 2040 x 1080 px, which means the ratio is 17:9. Nothing impressive here: not an energy-saving super-sensitive IGZO, not even the in-cell touch sensor displays found in japanese models.

The only leaking photo of the Aquos S3 mini shows hardly anything – a front-facing camera on top, that should be impressive for selfie-maniacs with its 20 MP sensor. It's impossible to tell if the camera will have a dedicated notch or not.

The rear camera will actually have a single smaller sensor – 16 MP. No details are known about it.

The Aquos S3 mini will supposedly roll out with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor that has 4 x 2.2 GHz and 4 x 1.8 GHz cores. It will have 4 GB of RAM/64 GB of ROM or 6 GB of RAM/128 GB of ROM – or there will be two versions.

The battery will be 2930 mAh.

It's unclear if this device will see official announcement together with the "big" Aquos S3 on 16 January, but let's wait for 2 weeks and we'll know.
