A new SHARP smartphone is reportedly in the works and it looks to have decent modern processing power in tow. The latest Geekbench listing reveals the presence of Snapdragon 660 processor SoC, along with the ideal capacity of RAM.

The new SHARP Smartphone on Geekbench is known as FS8016. The device is powered by Snapdragon 660 SoC with octa-core, 1.84 GHz processor, and carries in 4GB RAM.

The SHARP Smartphone FS8016 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, which basically means that it is going to be one of the best budget level smartphones in near future. However, it should be noted that there aren't many smartphones available in the market today that feature SD660 chipset, as there is only one handset available that is powered by the cool SD660 processor, and that is Oppo R11, as reported by The Android Soul.

Apart from RAM, processor and Android OS in use on the upcoming Sharp FS8016 Smartphone, there is much still unknown about it. According to GSM Arena, the Geekbench listing reveals the handset runs Android Nougat (version 7.1.1 to be exact). However, given that it has started appearing in benchmark listings so much about the said SHARP Smartphone is expected to hear more about it sooner than later.

SHARP made news a few years ago with its Aquos Crystal and the company now has yet another new bezel-less device in the works. The Japanese OEM recently launched the Aquos R that served as its flagship.

This year may turn out to be really good, with a flagship and a bezel-less device to compete with the likes of Samsung and LG. SHARP may not have quite a being there in the Android space, but the company does know how to push boundaries that other OEMs have hesitated.
