This December 2016 Sharp are releasing their first SIM-free flip-keitai, the Aquos Mobile SH-N01.

Other than the name, and perhaps relieved from the operator pre-installed bloatware, this is the exact same phone as the Aquos Mobile SH-01J on Docomo, the Aquos Mobile 2 on SoftBank and the Aquos Mobile...

Announced in the end of October and due out in mid-December 2016 is Sharp's next SIM-free phone, the Aquos SH-M04, also released as SH-M04-A, the difference being that the latter is sold with an AC adapter and microUSB cable.

Being SIM-free, this naturally means it is a low-spec device. Indeed, on the Aquos SH-M04 we find the octa-core Snapdragon...

Scheduled for release in November 2016 is Docomo's Aquos Ever SH-02J, a device that utterly fails to impress.

The SH-02J is mid-range at best: it comes with a 5-inch IGZO display which guarantees long battery life – and indeed, it is advertised as capable of lasting "three days or more", of course depending on usage. The screen resolution...

21 September 2016: Sharp launched the sales of the Robohon Sumaho smartphone-with-robot bundle, a limited 100 sets offer, at the – frankly – insane price of 224,640 Yen or 2,212 USD!

The bundled smartphone is a low-to-mid-range device of the EDGEST series - reduced top and sides bezel, a design that was abandoned in Sharp's 2016 collection. It features...

Released in late July 2016, the Y!Mobile (owned by Softbank) 507SH is a rebranding of the Aquos U SHV35 released last month for AU by KDDI.

The main difference, however, is that the 507SH is much less customised than any other Sharp or carrier-subsidised phone in Japan. It is in fact an Android One device centred around...

Just released (end of June 2016) is Sharp's third SIM-free phone, dubbed the Aquos mini SH-M03.
