Sharp, the Japanese-based smartphone maker has released the new Sharp Aquos R6 that comes with the world’s largest 1-inch camera sensor ever in a mobile phone. Interestingly, we are also looking at the first Pro IGZO OLED display ever used in a smartphone as well.
The Sharp Aquos R6 carries a 6.67-inch Pro IGZO OLED display with WUXGA+ resolution, i.e. 2730 x 1260 pixels, and a dynamic refresh rate ranging from 1Hz up to 240Hz.
It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor paired with 12GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage, which is the only memory config available as well.
At the back of the device lies an f/1.9 20MP shooter with a 1-inch sensor made in collaboration with Leica that includes research and development, design of the lens, and adjustment of image quality. Right next to it is a ToF sensor that is said to use infrared light in order to determine the depth information. The main camera also uses Electronic Image Stabilization.
Similarly, the primary shooter is said to capture high-quality images even in low light conditions with enhanced dynamic range and lesser noise.
The Aquos R6 has a single selfie unit at the front housed inside the tiny punch hole, which is a 12MP sensor. You also get to see an under-display fingerprint sensor as well as resistance to water and dust. The smartphone carries a 5,000mAh cell to keep its lights on.
Available in Black and White color options, the Sharp Aquos R6 is all set to go on sales via local carriers — NTT and Docomo starting mid-June 2021, the same time when its price will also be announced.
