Sharp solar-powered mobile phone available in China from February

Sharp Corporation will commercialize a mobile phone equipped with a solar cell module for the Chinese market from this February. This will be the first solar-powered mobile phone by Sharp for the overseas markets.


Sharp introduced solar-powered mobile phones into the Japanese market in 2009. These handsets have proven popular, reflecting a recent surge in the number of ecologically minded consumers.

The SH6230C is equipped with advanced technology originally developed in Japan, including Sharp’s proprietary solar cell module, a large 2.9-inch LCD screen, and a 5-megapixel autofocus camera. Given the increasing demand for the solar charging function, Sharp will bring the solar-powered mobile phones to the global markets.
