Sharp Aquos S3 'World's Most Compact 6-Inch Smartphone' Launched: Price, Specifications, Features
Highlights
  • The phone beats the LG V30 to take the title
  • It will be available in Taiwan starting April 1
  • Aquos S3 arrives a few days after Aquos S3 Mini was launched

Japanese electronics giant Sharp has introduced the Aquos S3 smartphone in Taiwan, just a few days after the Aquos S3 Mini was unveiled in China. Dubbed the "most compact 6-inch smartphone in the world", the Sharp Aquos S3 has a marginally more compact width and height compared to the LG V30, which previously held the record. But, in order to accomodate a near-bezel-less experience, the smartphone has a front-facing notch that houses the front camera and certain sensors. Priced at TWD 11,990 (roughly Rs. 26,700), the Sharp Aquos S3 will be made available in a Black colour variant in Taiwan starting April 1.
