The second Sharp phone to see official launch on European markets is neither Sharp, nor impressive in any way. The Sharp B10 is designed and made by Foxconn's subsidiary FIH Mobile and was announced in April 2018 for Vietnam under the name A2 Lite.
The Sharp B10 is a low-end device with 5.7-inch HD+ screen (720 x 1440 px) and an aspect ratio of 18:9. A 2.5D glass is installed on top.
The B10 Lite is powered by a quadcore MediaTek MT6737T processor (4 x 1.3 GHz), 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB built-in storage.
The rear (main) camera comprises two 13 MP (f/2.0) that can shoot wide-angel (120-degree images and maybe video, too), and the front-facing selfie camera is 13 MP (the A2 Lite has a 13+5 main and an 8-megapixel secondary camera).
The MTK processor supports FDD-LTE, W-CDMA, and GSM radio communication, as well as Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi (a/b/g/n). There is support for 2 SIM cards (one nano and one micro) – the second SIM slot can function as a microSD card slot. A fingerprint authentication sensor is mounted on the back of the phone.
The Sharp B10 measures 153.5 mm x 71.9 mm x 8.8 mm and weighs a bulky 175 grams.
Supported readio frequencies include:
LTE FDD: B1/B3/B5/B7/B8/B20
UMTS: 2100/1900/850/900 MHz
GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
The retail price of the Sharp B10 is 299 euro. Can't expect a lot for this much, can you?
The Sharp B10 will launch with Android 7.0 Nougat (why?) and will be available in black.
Looks like the European-market "invasion" Foxconn are planning will turn out to be a gigantic fiasco...
