Sharp have not really had any success is the western world with their phones but they are looking to change that with the release of the gorgeous Sharp AQUOS Crystal.  This is a relatively mid end phone in terms of specification with a 1280×720 resolution LCD screen, 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1.5 GB RAM, 8 GB ROM and a 2,040-mAh lithium-ion battery however the stand our feature is the look of the phone itself.

The phone has an edge-to-edge “borderless” display which is the first of its kind and we hope a design concept that other brands will follow. The phone, with a 5″ screen actually looks small in the press photos we have seen, it should make using large screen phones a lot more usable.

Sprint in the US has confirmed the Aquos Crystal will be out soon but there is no word on pricing. Currently there is no word on a UK launch.
