Sharp Launches The First Phone With Dual Notch On Screen

Browse By

The launch of the SHARP AQUOS R2 COMPACT is really trending on the net, being the first smartphone to feature a notch to both the top and bottom when some of us still don’t fancy the notch design and now there is two them? This year, 2018 has been all about the notch display which was first introduced by the Essential smartphone but Apple made it popularly known by designing the iPhone X with a notch display.

The SHARP AQUOS R2 COMPACT is a small size device made with metal and polycarbonate material plus highly comprehensive features ranging from the camera to the display quality and hardware performance, so looking at this weird smartphone as some of us might see it, is a machine in its own way. Let’s get to it. 

DISPLAY

R2 COMPACT features a 5.2-inch  full HD+ IGZO, IPS LCD capacitive touch-screen display with 2280 x 1080p in resolution resulting up to 485 PPI. Looking at the display of this device, it really rich in color plus the display wraps around the camera and the fingerprint giving it more screen to the top and bottom. Additionally, is a 2.5D curved glass surface, Corning Gorilla glass to enable scratch resistant, an HDR video technology, Dolby Vision which is often used for the movie theater and so on.

CAMERA

On the rear side of the phone is a single camera which really surprised me, since SHARP can double the trending design which is the notch, why can’t they double the camera too making it four or at least make it dual rear camera. Well, some say it better to have one single camera than having two dual cameras where both are of low quality.

SHARP AQUOS R2 COMPACT sports a 22.6MP high-resolution camera lens with a f/1.9 aperture which is further integrated with AI to take good shots according to the scene by auto-selecting a mode that fits in. It has an image dimension of 5488 x 4112 Pixels and it supports full HD recording, auto-focus, and touch-focus plus a video resolution of 2160@30fps, 1080p@30, 60fps which is good enough to record quality videos with enough lights.

And according to SHARP, It is hard to shake even in photographs and movie shooting of pickups by W and W hand vibration compensation of optical type and electronic type which I think manufacturers need to start adopting.

At the center of the notch is an 8MP front camera with beautifications features to produce nice selfies in vibrant colors and it features f/2.0 aperture and faces recognition tech.

HARDWARE

On the inside is a high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at the speed of 2.8GHz and a 4GB LPDDR4X RAM with a memory speed of 1866MHz making it one of the most powerful smartphones to launch this year. The device is packed with a 64GB ROM, quite small to you? not to worry, it supports a memory expansion up to 512GB using a memory card. This device might be small, but trust, it will work perfectly more than the big sized phones.

POWER AND OS

SHARP AQUOS R2 COMPACT is powered by Lithium Polymer 2500mAh battery capacity which is non-removable. it supports fast charging tech but no wireless on this one, the battery can last up to 3.5 hours watching videos, 4 hours browsing, 11 hours playing music. The device runs on Android 9.0 Pie with a modified UI.
