Sharp, an Japanese electronic giant, the company which is most famously known for starting the trend of bezelless smartphones with the launch of the Sharp Aquos Crystal and Sharp Aquos Xx has been in the middle of it once again. This time, the company has launched the Sharp Aquos R device which is company’s flagship device of 2017. Sharp’s newest launch, Aquos R is a very interesting device because as was leaked earlier, the device is not at all bezelless but it is by no means compromised in terms of specifications. At a time when all the device manufacturers except Samsung have been struggling to get their hands on the latest Snapdragon chipset, Sharp has launched the Aquos R with Sanpdragon 835 chipset which is the latest and greatest from Qualcomm.
As for the specifications of the phone, Sharp Aquos R comes with 5.3 inch WQHD IGZO liquid crystal display panel which is 4K HDR 10 compatible. Underneath the phone, it carries the latest Snapdragon 835 processor. Another outstanding feature is the 22.6MP rear camera with F1.9 aperture and an amazing 16.3MP selfie snapper. It packs in 4GB RAM and 64GB in-built storage.
Sharp Aquos R will be shipped with Android 7.1.1 Nougat and 3,160 mAh battery. On top of these high-end specsheet, it sports front fingerprint scanner and IP68 rating which makes it water and dust resistant. The phone is powered by Sharp’s AI ‘Emopa’ which gives the user audio and text messages, and changes the screen, depending on the time, place, and user’s personal needs. ‘Emopa’ can operate independently or combined with an accessory dock called ROBOKUKU.
Sharp has not revealed about the availability and launch of the device in the international market but we assume that the phone can be priced around 800 euros if it launches elsewhere. We will keep you updated as we know further about this device.
