Japanese electronic giant, Sharp has officially announced the company’s next-generation Sharp AQUOS R6 flagship phone that features a revolutionary camera system co-engineered with famed optic equipment manufacturer Leica – which used to co-engineer Huawei’s “P” and “Mate” series camera system.
Unlike most of the recent flagship phones that come with at least three or four cameras at the back, the Sharp AQUOS R6 does things differently by offering a single 20 megapixels camera with a huge 1-inch camera sensor which is in fact the largest among all smartphone cameras. This camera will be complemented with a ToF sensor for depth information.
According to Sharp, the camera is equipped with a 7p Leica Summicron lens which allows users to “take full-scale photographs with little distortion and high resolution”. Likewise, Sharp has also introduced a laser autofocus system that’s capable of lightspeed focusing even in dark areas.
Upfront, the Sharp AQUOS R6 arrives with a 6.67” Pro IGZO OLED display which has an impressive 2730 x 1260 pixels screen resolution and a variable refresh rate between 1Hz to 240Hz. To sweeten the deal, it also has a peak brightness of 2,000 nits which is also the brightest among all flagship phones. The front package will be rounded out by a 12.6 megapixels selfie camera housed with a central hole-punch cutout.
Under the hood, the Sharp AQUOS R6 is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 888 chipset which is paired with 12GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage in the memory department. The phone is equipped with a hefty 5,000mAh battery that carries support for intelligent Charge 2.0.
For those who’re interested, the Sharp AQUOS is available in both Black and White colorways. The official pricing of the phone has yet to be announced, but is expected to be unveiled in the middle of June.
