Googles ambitious project to offer software stored on a budget - Android One is not yet dead. Sharp launched its third Android smartphone - the X1 in Japan. The handset is powered by a flabby version of Android Nougat 7.1 and is compatible with FeliCa support for Android Pay.
For starters, the Sharp X1 has a rather standard design with rounded edges and a thick chassis. There is a 5.3-inch Full HD LCD panel at the front, and below it you will find an elongated fingerprint sensor. The smartphone works with Qualcomms 435 octa-core Snapdragon processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage expandable to 256GB via a MicroSD card and a massive 3900mAh battery that is rated for a 4 day use And charges On USB-C.
The camera includes a 16.4 megapixel rear shooter, a LED flash and an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens for selfies. In addition, the unit is also water and dust proof. Sharp also provided support for Felica which is a system of cards widely used in Asian countries for banking and transit purposes. The technology will work in conjunction with Android Pay and should provide enough room for Google to build its image, although it is considering the possibility that this phone sells well.
Sharp promises that X1 will receive monthly security updates for two years, as well as a major upgrade. It is available for purchase from the Japanese Y! mobile. There are three color options so you can choose: white, dark purple and mint green.
It is not clear what Google is contemplating with Android One here and whether it will be launching new handsets in other countries as well. However, we do not expect them to revive the lineup as they have also announced another project called "Android Go" which is expected to make its first public appearance next year.
