Sharp still makes phones: Nougat-powered FS8005 benchmarked

While Foxconn works on bringing Sharp to the OLED age, Sharp still has a mature, beautiful LCD technology that it can use in products it can sell like TVs and smartphones. Maybe robots, too — you never know. And the display manufacturer is still making said products.

It supposedly has one new mid-ranger device planned and running Android Nougat, at least according to a GFXBench log of the Sharp FS8005 (no, not Sony’s F8331).

Also in the spec mix is an octa-core Qualcomm CPU running strictly on the Cortex-A53 topping out at 1.4GHz and containing the Adreno 505 GPU. That means that we’re looking at the top-of-the-bottom-end Snapdragon 435 being backed by 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. There’s also a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facer.

It’s admirable to see Sharp keeping the product mix fresh for the seasons while in a state of transition. And with new money to back it up, it might not have to worry about too much if this device isn’t exactly bonkers popular.
