Sharp Aquos SH8298U 3D smartphone goes under the knife, comes out in China
Same phone, different market — that’s pretty much what we’re looking at above with Sharp’s “new” 3D Aquos SH8298U. We first got our hands-on this device’s twinner — the Aquos SH-12C — back at Computex, with that model sporting the Japan-only 1seg receiver, FeliCa (NFC) and 800MHz / 2100MHz bands. This time out, the OEM’s made some subtle changes to its China entry, reducing the handset’s storage from 8GB to 2GB, and packing it with GSM / WCDMA / HSPA radios. The rest of the spec list remains exactly the same, leaving this skinned Android 2.3 phone with a 4.2-inch qHD stereoscopic 3D display, dual 8 megapixel cameras, 512MB RAM and a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon processor.
