Sprint calls dibs on Sharp AQUOS Crystal


The mid-range device is also coming to Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile

Sprint on Tuesday announced the upcoming availability of the Sharp AQUOS Crystal, an Android-powered smartphone with mid-level hardware. Due “soon”, the device features a quad-core Snapdragon processor, 1.5GB RAM, and 8GB internal storage. The rear houses an 8-megapixel camera while the front offers users a 1.2-megapixel shooter.

The big draw on the AQUOS Crystal is its 5-inch 720p edgeless LCD display. With only a fraction of a bezel to content with, the phone is more pocketable than other 5-inch models. Additional features include Harman Kardon Clari-Fi and LiveStage audio technologies, and Direct Wave Receiver for crystal clear sound.


In terms of software, the AQUOS Crystal runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat and comes with various apps and tweaks: OfficeSuite, Speaktoit Assistant, and Clip Now.

Sprint will offer the handset in black or white options for $0 with 24 monthly payments of $10 for a total price of $240. The Sharp AQUOS Crystal will also be offered across Sprint’s pre-paid brands of Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile for $149.99.
