Last month, we brought word of a new version of Sharp's SH-06D Android-powered smartphone based on the popular Neon Genesis Evangelion anime, which currently in the midst of a four-film feature retelling of the original mid-90s television series and subsequent theatrical films. At the time, all we had was a very dark teaser image, but thanks to the recent Anime Expo 2012 (photos from here, found via EvaGeeks), we can see much more of the device -- and it's a stunning tribute to the series' distinct technological style.
No doubt, the phone -- modeled to look like that of a NERV employee in the series -- sports a very busy-looking custom skin of Android 2.3, and it may not prove to be the most practical UI around. But for die-hard fans of the franchise, it's a remarkably accurate recreation of the series art style and not just a half-hearted promotional tie-in. The phone is tied into the fall theatrical release of Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo in Japan, and will launch on NTT DoCoMo. Like the previous Evangelion-themed phone released for the previous film, it's highly unlikely to be released outside of Japan, but at least we can stare at the photos and dream.
