Sharp has been expecting to launch it’s devices in Europe for quite some time now and with it being on the news for its rumoured Aquos series the demand grew. Although, until last two weeks the date of the launch was not yet set up. The Aquos C10 and B10 were found in Europe earlier this month and already available in a Dutch webshop.

The leak revealed the Aquos C10 which seems to be the upgraded version of the Sharp E-H1 with small tweaks here and there.
In the past, the Sharp phones were very popular in the Netherlands, especially clamshells as reported by nieuwemobiel.nl.
Both the phones are budget oriented and aimed for light pockets. Although, the C10 seems to be the best amongst the both with its high specs.
Specifications Of Aquos C10
The Sharp C10 sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD with 1080 x 2040p resolution with a 17:9 aspect ratio. The screen is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass.
The Foxconn owned company agrees on following the trend by sporting the infamous notch, a rather small one which only seems to house the front camera in it.
The front camera houses in an 8MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture and is capable of shooting 1080p videos.
On the other hand, the rear camera has a 12MP + 8MP lens with the former having a bright f/1.75 aperture lens and can record high-quality video too. Underneath the dual camera setup is the LED Flash.
