Sharp's Aquos Pad SH-05G is the second tablet in the world to use the Snapdragon 810
Sharp had a busy day today. Aside from unveiling the Aquos ZETA SH-03G, the Snapdragon 810-powered smartphone that comes with record-setting slow motion video capture, Sharp also announced today the Aquos Pad SH-05G, a tablet that shares many of the specs featured by the aforementioned handset.

The Sharp Aquos Pad SH-05G is the second tablet in the world to make use of the Snapdragon 810, the high-end chip from Qualcomm that integrates four Cortex-A57 cores clocked at 2.0GHz and four additional Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz. 

The display of the tablet is a 7-inch IGZO panel running at a resolution of 1200 by 1920 pixels (Full HD). In terms of design, Sharp's recent-found tendency of trimming smartphone display bezels to the bare minimum found its way to the Aquos Pad as well. Measuring 174 x 105 x 8.0 mm, this is one of the most compact 7-inch Android tablets that you're going to find, and with a weight of just 210 grams, it's one of the lightest as well.

Other internal specs include 2GB of RAM, 32GB of integrated storage space, a microSD card slot, and a 3,900mAh battery. As one would expect, the Sharp Aquos Pad SH-05G does not feature the same kind of camera wizardry as the Aquos ZETA. Instead, it comes with a comparatively mundane 8MP primary camera and a 2.1MP secondary shooter. The tablet is set to launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop on board.

The Sharp Aquos Pad SH-05G is scheduled for a mid-July release date in Japan through local carrier Docomo, although Sharp has yet to announce pricing information. At the moment, it's unclear if the tablet will make it outside of Japan.

Wow, a 7" inch tablet with some real performance in it. Has been a while, now it's mostly 8-10 inches.

If you're gonna put a over-heating processor in a tablet, you might as well get the Tegra K1

3GB RAM and $200-$300 would have been perfect

Very reminiscent of Xperia. Although I hope it doesn't turn into a frying pan. ;)

It's a tablet. If the SD810 still heats up with that much room to spread out and dissapate, then that CPU should be anywhere near a phone. Then again with a huge battery it doesn't need to thermal throttle to conserve battery so it might still get quite warm.

Nice! Even if sharp includes phone functionality for tbis one, it will still be not awkward to use.
