Sharp has announced the Aquos R Compact, a smaller model in its Aquos R range of smartphones. Unlike the other models in the series, the Aquos R Compact has a different, more of an edge-to-edge display design similar to the company's previous smartphones.
The Aquos R Compact has a 4.9-inch, 2032x1080 resolution IGZO LCD. Apart from the fact that it goes right up to the edges on the top, has curved corners and notch in the center for the front camera, the display has 120Hz refresh rate that is twice as fast as almost every other smartphone display.
The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It also has a 16.4 megapixel camera on the back and an 8 megapixel camera on the front. The software is Android 8.0 Oreo with EMOPA 7.0. Running the whole thing is a 2500mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0.
The Aquos R Compact will be available in December exclusively on Softbank Japan.
For sure this is not the most beautiful phone on the world. But it is small. I read somewhere it meashures 132x66x9.2 mm. It is same size as the original Samsung A3 with its 4.5 inch screen. So the big shit on the bottom can be swalloed. Go Sharp.
I think they wont use LCD's Ever for google Daydream.But a 120Hz Amoled panel would be really great for VR.Maybe next Google daydream will get that upgrade
Hope they change their minds and make a worldwide launch. I'd buy it in a heartbeat. The market is starved of compact phones with decent specs.
