The Aquos sense3 plus was announced officially on 25 September, and will start selling in December 2019. It will be offered by Rakuten Mobile, Softbank, and AU.

The Aquos sense3 plus is slightly larger than the Aquos sense3 lite – adding half an inch to its 5.5" display, and a greater resolution of course: 2220 x 1080 px. The display is an IGZO but not the 120 Hz type found on the flagship devices. Still, it equals or beats any other manufacturer's display in terms of energy-saving and sensitivity. The now standard Rich Color Technology Mobile found in Aquos TVs is used to ensure bright and colourful images.

To further enhance viewing experience, Dolby Atmos®-compatible stereo speakers for Hi-Res audio have been installed on the device, one on the top edge and one on the bottom.

A mid-range device after all, the Aquos sense3 plus is powered by a Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor and has 6 GB of operating memory. There's plenty of onboard storage with 64 or 128 GB ROM options.

This is Sharp's first non-flagship phone to feature two rear cameras: one "standard" 12.2-megapixel camera with aperture size of f/1.8 and 76° focal length, high-speed auto-focus, electronic image stabilisation and subject-blur correction capability. The second camera has a 13.1-megapixel super-wide-angle (123°) sensor with f/2.4 aperture, electronic image stabilisation, subject-blur correction/ Both cameras can create Sharp's last year's flagship innovation, AI Live Story, where the artificial intelligence image processor automatically composes a short video clip of the best frames captured while shooting.

Selfie-maniacs don't have much to drool over: the inner camera has an 8-megapixel sensor that is wide-angle (80°) and has an f/2.2 aperture size.

Connectivity-wise, the Aquos sense3 plus has everything you could want: support for all Wi-Fi speed standards (a/b/g/n/ac), Bluetooth 5.0, Osaifu-keitai/NFC, face authentication, fingerprint authentication.

The following radio frequencies are supported by the SH-RM11:
LTE (FDD): 2100 (B1) / 1900 (B2) / 1800 (B3) / 1700 (B4) / 900 (B8) / 850 (B5) / 800 (B18 / B19) / 700 (B12 / B17) MHz;
LTE (TDD): 2500 (B41) MHz;
W-CDMA: 2100 (I) / 1900 (II) / 1700 (IV) / 900 (VIII) / 850 (V) / 800 (VI / XIX) MHz;
GSM: 1900/1800/900/850 MHz.

This is a rather tall phone, measuring 160 x 75 x 8.7 mm (H x W x D), and not particularly light-weight with its 175 grams.

Originally released running Android 9.0, the Rakuten version of ten Aquos sense3 plus received an upgrade to Android 10 on 1 July 2020.

The colour variations for the Aquos sense3 plus are: moon blue, black, and white.

The official launch price is 48,800 Yen (approx. 448 USD), with sales starting 13 December 2019.
