The surprisingly sleek and gorgeous Sharp Aquos Crystal is now available for purchase on Boost Mobile, and Sprint Prepaid at Best Buy retail stores. Its screen will make you squint to see the edges, as it has what is definitely one of the thinnest bezels of any phone on the market.

Announced this past August, the Sharp Aquos Crystal will be available for a comparatively cheap $149.99 from Sprint’s Boost Mobile brand and Sprint Prepaid through Best Buy. Getting the new smartphone at Sprint will take a bit longer, however. You’ll have to wait until Friday, October 17th, but you can get it for $0 down and pay it off at $10 per month over the next 24 months.

The specs of the new Sharp Aquos Crystal include a 5-inch 720p display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. It runs on Android’s 4.4.2 KitKat, has an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 1.2-megapixel camera on the front, as well as a 2,040 mAh battery.

Sure, the Sharp Aquos Crystal doesn’t have the showstopping specs of other smartphones on the market, but for the price and look of the phone, it doesn’t have to. You can buy the phone now through Boost Mobile, and Sprint Prepaid (Best Buy).

If you want to wait to get it on a Sprint postpaid plan, you can pick it up starting October 17th.
