Sharp, a brand that’s not so popular has just let their beast enter the market. The Sharp AQUOS R6 has been launched with top-tier specs that no other company can match. The 1 inch camera sensor is just one of them. Apple iPhone 12 (series) was the smartphone with the biggest sensor in the world till now.
Also, Sharp has partnered with LEICA, a popular name in the camera world. The company has stated that the image sensor is about five times bigger than its predecessor and comes with lots of improvements as well. The Sharp AQUOS R6 also supports low light laser autofocus. Its primary shooter is a 20 megapixel sensor that is paired with a 12.6 ToF lens.
The 240Hz refresh rate display looks great on paper. Yeah, there isn’t much difference between 120Hz and 240Hz for normal users, but for pro gamers and geeks who put the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC to extreme test, the 240Hz can be beneficial. For the vast majority of users who are only concerned with a little bit of video editing and light gaming (asphalt 9 and PUBG, COD), the 240Hz is nothing more than a marketing gimmick.
The Japanese smartphone maker is trying to expand its hold in the ultra-high end segment, as can be understood by just looking at those three specs above. The Sharp AQUOS R6 is packed with the best features and technologies that no other company can compete with. It is like Sharp wrote all the specs and features that a future flagship device should have and then built it themselves.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 makes the smartphone the second best performer in this segment slightly below the A14 bionic powering the iPhone 12 series. The 1 inch image sensor will make it the best camera smartphone in the world if the color science is accurate. The 240Hz refresh rate has already bought the smartphone a award for the best display in the market.
The Sharp AQUOS R6 comes with an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor (most secure technology) which even allows two finger unlocking.
The official notes read that “The fingerprint sensor of AQUOS R6 is equipped with “Qualcomm 3D Sonic Max,” which is 11 times larger than the conventional ones and the largest size in the world. You can also unlock by touching about. Moreover, the security level has also improved.”
The Sharp AQUOS R6 features a 6.6 inch WUXGA + Pro IGZO OLED with a 2K+ resolution (1,260 x 2,730px) and a 240Hz high refresh rate. The display supports HDR with a 20,000,000:1 contrast ratio and also offers a peak brightness of 2000 nits.
It packs a large 5,000mAh battery which supports Intelligent Charge 2.0. For memory, Sharp is offering the smartphone with 12GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 fast storage.
The AQUOS R6 runs on the latest Android 11 and has IPX8 certification for water and dust resistance. Pricing details of this smartphone are not known yet. The smartphone might first see a Japan-only launch and then it could be launched in some other regions as well. More details will be available soon, so stay tuned with us on our social media handles.
