Sharp Aquos 206SH is unveiled: the 1080p monster phone with 2-day battery life
The Sharp Aquos 206SH is a smartphone that will arrive in Japan and is highly unlikely to get to our side of Earth, but it’s still a device worth the mention. The Aquos 206SH packs all the features of a high-end smartphone like a 1080p 5-inch screen and a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, but it also includes a whopping 3080mAh battery that allows it to last nearly two full days of average use.

Got you interested? The Aquos 206SH uses the interesting CG Silicon TFT LCD screen technology for the 5-inch display as well. That allows for a thinner and more efficient screen, and paired with the “Eco Tech” mode should withstand two days on a single charge. Sharp has actually tried new display technology in Japan for a while now as last time it launched its IGZO battery efficient screen tech on the Japan-bound AQUOS TAB SHT21.

The 3080mAh battery is actually only slightly less capable than the one on the Samsung Galaxy Note II phablet.

This Sharp Aquos 206SH is coming to Japan’s SoftBank (the same one that plans to acquire U.S. third-largest carrier Sprint) in late June. The handset features a 13-megapixel camera with wide f/1.9 aperture, 4G LTE, TV and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. It’s also waterproof, take a look below.

And Sharp is having financial problems? Perhaps they should expand the number of markets they sell their toys in?

Two days battery life mean 48 hours non-stop usage. Motorola Razer Maxx with 3300mAh battery last 30 hours not Full HD display.

This isn't a smart move for sharp as the US is a very large smartphone market and with this device they could probably out sell apple and samsung there.

Other manufacturers should also follow the trend of putting bigger batteries on their flagship smartphone. I'm impressed with sharp with the moves they're doing right now

Japan's Softbank GSM or CDMA? If this would run on T-Mobile, be interesting to see if they'd ship it to a US customer.

They use W-CDMA (HSPA+) 2100 for 3G, and they use FFD-LTE Band I (2100 MHz) for 4G which is not compatible with US LTE networks.

Great phones in Japan and China that aren't exported. Wouldn't mind taking a look at this phone.

How much is the population of Japan.......???? how these companies survive only by selling their products in Japan........... Hope they will move out of Japan, to international markets, just like small Chinese OEM's are expanding their business in other Asian and European countries........

Most Japanese phones looks good on paper but once they are released to the international market they flop both in sales and critics reviews.
