Sprint formally announced plans to carry the Sharp AQUOS Crystal back in August and today the carrier has released the edge-to-edge display-toting handset on its in-house prepaid service, as well as Boost Mobile. Priced at $150, the AQUOS Crystal can be purchased at select retailers or directly from Boost’s website. In addition to an off contract option, Sprint will add the device to its postpaid roster on Friday, October 17th for no money down on a two year Easy Pay payment plan of $10 a month.
Available in black (Sprint) and white (Boost Mobile), the Sharp AQUOS Crystal is an attractive budget-friendly phone with a 5-inch 720p display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, an 8-megapixel rear-facing shooter, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, a 2,040mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.
Toss in the device’s Harman Kardon LiveStage support and this bang for your buck smartphone’s $150 asking price almost sounds like an accomplishment.
