Japanese virtual mobile operator Rakuten is the first to introduce the new mid-range phone of the Aquos sense line: Aquos sense3 lite, SH-RM11. It comes with the impressive promise of "1 week battery life", which is possible thanks to the huge battery savings only an IGZO display can offer.
It's as yet unclear if this is the 5th generation IGZO that the Aquos R3 flagship boasts.
The screen on the Aquos sense3 lite measures 5.5 inches diagonally and has a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels (18:9).
Not much is known to date, other than the slight improvement in processing power: the Aquos sense3 lite comes with the Snapdragon 630 processor, which is said to bring some 15% boost in CPU performance and 60% in graphics processing in comparison with the Snapdragon 450 found on last year's Aquos sense2.
The amount of available RAM has been upped a bit: from 3 GB to 4 GB, while the built-in storage space has been expanded twofold: from 32 GB to 64 GB.
The 12-megapixel rear camera now uses a large-pixels sensor and is advertised as performing great in low-light conditions – but details have not been announced yet.
The selfie camera is 8 MP.
The phone supports the now pretty standard face authentication and fingerprint authentication methods.
The Aquos sense3 lite measures 70 x 147 x 8.9 mm (W x L x D) and weighs 166 grams which makes is a hefty piece of phone.
Of course, it is both waterproof (IPX5/8) and dustproof (IP6X).
The colour variations for the SH-RM11 are: light copper, silver white, and black.
