Japanese firm Sharp introduces a new smartphone dubbed as Sharp S7. The company had lately announced plenty of other devices including its new flagship Aquos Zero2. Apparently, it is rebranded Aquos Sense 3 Lite with some significant changes in the software department. The key selling point of this device is Android One. For those who are unaware, Android One is an initiative from Google, which ensures you to deliver timely updates and security patches directly from the Android owner.
Sharp S7 Specifications

The smartphone packs 4,000 mAh non-removable battery, which according to the company is capable of providing approx. one-week battery life using the Energy Saving mode.

Unlike traditional Sharp smartphones, Sharp S7 offers pure Android experience with a guaranty of the latest updated directly pushed from Google under the Android One program.
