Besides the new Zeta handset, Sharp also launched the new AQUOS Pad SH-05G that comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC making it the second tablet that comes with the said chipset. It also follows most of the technologies found on the Zeta SH-03G handset especially when it comes to their specs.
The new AQUOS Pad features a 7-inch IGZO display with 1200 x 1620 resolutions with a notable thin bezels that seems to become a significant attraction from the manufacturer. Going underneath its skin is Qualcomm’s flagship chipset the Snapdragon 810 that packs a 4-core Cortex-A57 processor clocked at 2.0 GHz and another 4-core of Cortex-A53 processor at 1.5 GHz. The 8-core 64-bit processor is accompanied by 2 GB of RAM for smooth and seamless operations together with the built-in and expandable 32 GB of storage space.
As for the camera, the AQUOS Pad won’t have the same kit found on its handset cousin but will do more than enough for the tablet segment. On the back, there’s an 8 Megapixel camera with LED flash to assist in low-lighting conditions and on the front, there is the 2.1 Megapixel camera which should do well enough for selfies and high-quality video calls.
Even having a 7-inch display, the AQUOS Pad still manage to stay small and compact mainly due to its narrowed bezels where the device has an overall dimensions of 174 x 105 x 8.0 mm and weighs just 210 grams. Powering the device is the 3900 mAh battery which by tablets commonly available these days as standard and minimum. As expected the AQUOS Pad SH-05G runs the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sharp’s minimal modifications on top .
While the handset is earlier announced this May, it would still take almost two months to wait before Sharp would finally release the device which is scheduled to launch in Japan by the mid of July under Japan’s NTT DoCoMo. Though Sharp could have a potential customers for the device outside of Japan, the company is yet to announced whether they’re sticking within the Japanese market or release the device to other regions as well.
