Photo Announcement. Sharp Rouvo V - a sudden smartphone for the US with a "four-day" battery

Sharp, which in recent years has mainly produced smartphones for its native Japanese market, suddenly decided to return to the US market. And she released a smartphone there called Sharp Rouvo V. Or, perhaps, she gave someone the right to release this smartphone there under her own name. The device is so simple and boring that it is unlikely that Sharp engineers overworked themselves when creating it.

Weak MediaTek Helio A22 quad-core chipset, i.e. in AnTuTu we are waiting for about a hundred thousand points. A ridiculous amount of memory by today's standards. 3 GB RAM and 32 GB softwareStanding.

A 6.52" (103 cm²) screen with a resolution of 720x1600 (269 ppi). No increased refresh rate, of course.

"Four-day" battery with a capacity of 3500 mAh. Funny? And here it is not. They have everything calculated in America. According to the statistics of the operator Verizon, their typical smartphone user will last almost 102 hours. I'm not laughing. So in the press release it says (at the very end in small print).

The chambers are simple and single. 5 MP front and 8 MP rear.

There is Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi, a rear fingerprint scanner and, suddenly, a barometer.

But cheapand angrily. $89.99 (₽5520) at launch.
