FIH Mobile Limited, a subsidiary of Foxconn, have announced a number of low-end devices wearing the Sharp brand – to shame! – for the Vietnamese and Indian markets in early February 2018. The devices are nothing but rebranded versions of InFocus smartphones that are already selling on these markets.
The first of these devices that I am loathe to feature on my website is something called Sharp Pi (IF 9007). This smartphone features a 5.2-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 px (HD) made by God knows who but certainly not Sharp.
The Sharp Pi is equipped with a dual rear camera comprising one 13-megapixel and one 2-megapixel sensor, and with an 8-megapixel front camera. Discussing the quality of these sensors is pointless.
This abuse of the Sharp brand is powered by a MediaTek MT6737W processor having 4 cores, each with a maximum operating frequency of 1.3 GHz. The amount of RAM is 2 GB and the amount of on-board storage (ROM) is 16 GB.
This smartphone supports radio frequencies in the FDD-LTE / TD-LTE / W-CDMA / GSM bands, with a maximum download speed of 150 mbit/s and max. upload speed of 50 mbit/s.
Supported are Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi b/g/n at 2.4 GHz. The Sharp Pi even has a fingerprint scanner and a microSD card slot.
The battery capacity is 3000 mAh.
The Sharp Pi will run Android 7.0 Nougat.
