Introducing Sharp’s Aquos R6 flagship phone with a 240Hz display and a superb 1-inch sensor
Cooperation Sharp with Leica has also made news due to the fact that in recent days rumors In connection with the end of the cooperation of this German company with Huawei in the media Released. Rumors that have been denied by both companies, but considering the new collaboration with Sharp, we can at least be sure that Leica products are no longer exclusive to Huawei. In addition, news about the cooperation between Xiaomi and this German manufacturer It is heard that of course you have to wait for their confirmation.
One of the most important features of the new Sharp product is that it is equipped with a 6.6-inch PRO IGZO OLED screen. The most important feature of this screen is that it has a variable update rate from 1 to 240 Hz, which can be adjusted according to the amount of energy consumption and the smoothness of the screen. The number of Android phones currently on the market that are equipped with OLED screens with a variable refresh rate is very small, and perhaps the Sharp Aquos R6 display can be considered the most advanced example among them.
Also, Aquos R6 is considered the first smartphone with such a panel It uses a display whose resolution is WUXGA+ equivalent to 2730×1260 pixels. On the other hand, according to the manufacturer, the new Sharp device has a maximum brightness of 2,000 nits, the highest amount of this brightness among smartphones. With the presence of such a high-powered display, in order to prevent the battery from draining quickly, the Japanese company has considered a system to lower the refresh rate to 1 Hz, during the constant display of images.
As expected, this flagship smartphone from a mobile platform Snapdragon 888 is used for processing. The RAM of the device is 12 GB and 128 GB of internal memory is intended for it, which can be increased up to 1 TB with the help of a microSD slot.
In the back part of Aquos R6, we see the use of a 20 camera. We are a megapixel whose aperture is announced with a 7-piece lens and a focal length of 19 mm f/1.9. As mentioned, this camera is a product of Sharp’s cooperation with the German company Leica and is offered under the trade name Summicron. Among the device’s camera features, we can mention Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Time of Flight or ToF sensor. In addition, an LED flash is also embedded under the ToF sensor.
According to experts, this camera with a 1-inch sensor is similar to Sony’s RX100 compact cameras. The first smartphone that uses a sensor with these dimensions was the Panasonic CM1 introduced in 2014, which is actually a camera phone. Currently, the only smartphone with a sensor size close to Sharp’s current product, Mi 11 Ultra is Xiaomi with a 1/1.12-inch sensor.
The 12-megapixel selfie camera of this smartphone has an aperture of f/2.3 and is in a hole The top of the screen is punched.
The Aquos R6 smartphone is water and dust resistant with IPX8/IP6X protection standard and another notable feature is the dual fingerprint system. In fact, this phone is one of the few smartphones that uses Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Max identification technology. In this system, more active area is considered for placing the finger to make fingerprint identification easier. It also apparently allows users to simultaneously unlock their device with two fingers for added security.
New product Sharp with Android 11 will be available to Japanese users in June of this year through NTT Docmo and SoftBank operators, and its price is still It is not specified precisely.
