The latest Android One smartphone to launch in Japan is one that I wouldn’t mind seeing in the US… maybe with support for Google’s Project Fi network?

The Sharp X1 is a phone with mid-range specs, software updates delivered directly by Google, and a 3,900 mAh battery that’s said to be good for up to 4 days of run time.

It’s offered in Japan by wireless carrier Y!mobile.

The phone features a 5.3 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel IGZO display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.

It also has a microSDXC card slot for up to 256GB of removable storage, a USB Type-C port, and a 16MP rear camera and 8MP front-facing camera. The Sharp X1 is also water and dustrproof.

It takes about 3 hours to fully charge the phone’s battery, but once it’s topped off you shouldn’t need to recharge very often.

  1. Checked today but not at my local SoftBank store. Release date was Friday, but not at all stores yet.

  2. Why is google project fi such a big deal? they basically took the two weakest networks America has to offer and combined them and it isn’t even a good deal either at like $10 per gb… I get FreedomPop for nothing, and T-Mobile offers tablet data with a long expiration for about $10 per 5gb..

    1. 70,524 yen or about $627 currently. At least that’s the best I can find on that site.

      “販売価格 70,524円”

      1. Thanks for the info! For this price as a low end to mid range phone I have no problem it’s Japan only.
