This new 5.7-inch handset hits Taiwan this week, with more Asian markets to follow next month. Its specs include a Snapdragon 652 processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, 16 MP main camera with dual LED flash, all with Android 7.0 Nougat on top.

Sharp recently unveiled a new phablet that is the direct successor of the Sharp Z2. Sadly, this handset will probably miss the US and European markets, but that remains to be seen. This week, it launches in Taiwan, and other Asian markets are expected to get it in May.

Sharp Z3 has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB RAM; 64 GB internal storage and microSD support via hybrid slot
  • Display: 5.7-inch IPS LCD multitouch with 2,560X1,440 pixels and 520 nits brightness
  • Cameras: 13 MP front, 16 MP with PDAF, OIS, dual-LED flash on the back
  • Connectivity: dual-SIM, 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS, USB 2.0
  • Operating system: Android 7.0 Nougat
  • Battery: 3,100 mAh

In addition to the above, there is also a fingerprint reader that has been placed inside the Home button. The only color option available is champagne gold, and the price is around $462 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
