Sharp AQUOS R6, with 240Hz screen and 1.0-inch camera, announced
Expanding its portfolio of high-end smartphones, Japanese tech giant Sharp has announced the AQUOS R6 model in its home country. The phone comes with a couple of industry-leading features - the world's first 240Hz screen on a mobile phone and the world's first 1.0-inch smartphone camera sensor. Other highlights include the flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset and a Qualcomm ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner.
The Sharp AQUOS R6 features a dust and water-resistant body with a centrally-aligned punch-hole design, curved edges, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. On the rear, it packs a large rectangular camera unit. The device sports a 6.67-inch WUXGA+ (1260x2730 pixels) Pro IGZO OLED screen with a dynamic refresh rate of up to 240Hz and a peak brightness of 2,000-nits.
The Sharp AQUOS offers a single 20MP (f/1.9) camera on the back along with a ToF lens and a flash module. The camera has a Leica-engineered 1.0-inch sensor - the biggest ever on a smartphone. Up front, there is a 12MP selfie snapper.
The Sharp AQUOS draws power from a Snapdragon 888 chipset, combined with 12GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Under the hood, it boots Android 11 and is equipped with a 5,000mAh battery. For connectivity, the device offers support for the latest connectivity options, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 5G, a headphone jack, and a Type-C port.
The pricing details of the Sharp AQUOS R6 will be announced in June. The smartphone will be initially up for purchase via the NTT and Docomo sites in Japan.
