Last year Sharp wow-ed the world when they released the unusually designed Aquos Crystal, the quote on quote selling point of the device was the edge to edge display which provides a very immersive viewing experience. Coming back big this year, Sharp has just announced the successor to last years model and they are calling it the Sharp Aquos Xx (not sure why?)

Like all second generation products, the new Aquos Xx has been supercharged from the mediocre mid-range-y specs from it's predecessor to being a total flagship device. Starting from the front, the star of the show is the new 5.7" 1080P display which features minimal amounts of bezel on the top and sides. The 2MP front facing camera however is still positioned on the bottom of the screen.

Under the hood, the Snapdragon 810 CPU is present and is paired alongside 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage and a moderately sized 3,000mAh battery. The camera on the back has been upgraded to 13MP from the 8MP found on the Aquos Crystal. In terms of dimensions, the Aquos Xx is about the size of the new LG G4.

Sharp will begin offering the Aquos Xx in Japan next month and it's not likely that it'll ever leave it's home base.
