Sharp has just announced a new mid-range phone which the company calls the AQUOS V. The AQUOS V sports quite interesting specs, especially in the choice of a chipset.

The Sharp AQUOS V comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. This internal storage is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.
The AQUOS V will run Android 9 Pie out of the box. It will come with a fingerprint sensor on the rear. The device will come with a 3.5mm headphone jack in the top-right corner and will sport a USB Type-C port. It will have support for Bluetooth 5.0
