Sharp intros Aquos SH-12C 3D Android phone

Sharp pushed to keep Android on top in Japan by launching a new flagship with multiple firsts for the country. The Aquos SH-12C carries two rear eight-megapixel cameras that, like the Evo 3D, can shoot 3D video or still photos. Its 4.2-inch display is both one of the sharpest in Japan at 540x960 but also provides glasses-free 3D to show off the resulting footage.

The inside isn't quite as powerful as in the HTC phone or the LG Optimus 3D but is still at the high end with a 1.4GHz, single-core Snapdragon MSM8255 and 512MB of RAM. Sharp is delivering the SH-12C with Android 2.3 out of the box and has added its own extras through both its TapFlow UI and Japan-friendly extras like a 1Seg over-the-air TV tuner.

NTT DoCoMo is so far the initial carrier for the new Aquos and will start taking pre-orders on May 14 with a May 20 ship date. Sharp hasn't detailed expansion plans, but it did promise a 3D smartphone for the US and may see the SH-12C as its opportunity. [via Impress]
