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.
Sharp Aquos R2 Compact 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.
