Only in Japan: Snapdragon S4 Pro-equipped Aquos Phone Xx 203SH will make a debut in 2013
Japan is the land of exotic phones you’d see in no other place on the globe. Such is the Shrap-made Aquos Phone Xx 203Sh, a monster device running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro chip, the same silicon that will power the coveted LG Optimus G.

The new Aquos Phone will come out in the Spring of 2013 as part of Japanese Softbank’s new Android selection. The specs are pretty much mind-blowing in every aspect. There is 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable internal storage, a 16-megapixel rear camera and a front facing shooter.

Most importantly we see how this Sharp Android flagship sees the future and it is one of even bigger screens. The Xx 203SH will ship with a 4.9-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, and the phone will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

It looks brilliant and we can only hope that around spring 2013 our carriers will be flooded with similarly specced devices.

electronics manufacture that dominates in asia as a household name. sharp does ok in the rest of the world but none of the high end stuff seems to come out fast enough. sharp always had great flip phones for the home market and their smart phones are no different.

Very nice thing bezel like the Motorola RAZR M.... I think Samsung will introduce a 5" screen in the next Galaxy S3 to out do this but keeping the same size as the galaxy s3....

Forget Korean Tech, Advanced Japanese Technology is the only way to fly!

They should patent this edge2edge design, looks sexy and stylish, with no ugly curves at the front nor at the back, rear flat! "Concept looking phone"

This will never end, at this rate you will never buy a phone. Every time you want to wait to buy something, like the Optimus G let's say, you see that this might come out later in 2013. If you wait until Spring 2013 to buy this, there might be rumors of a 21 megapixel 4GB ram 8 core phone coming later that fall. So on and so forth....buy what you want now and ignore all the other rumors of the future. It's no use.

Why won't the japanese export these phones? and why is PA waving these exotic phones in our faces? and why do the phones' controls look so odd?

If Big Red released this, it would be known as the Droid Chimera If Sprint Released this, it would be the Sharp Aquos Bawsephone-203 If ATT released this phone, never mind.
