The latest post on our current coverage of “Cool Phones You Can’t Buy in the US” Sharp Aquos R7.
This phone is coming to Japan in July and is a testament to the fact that you can create a standalone smartphone on this day. Sharp is nothing new Unique designsAnd with the R7, a number of confusing design decisions made by other smartphone manufacturers are fixed.
First, the mustache Continue its direction To charge the largest camera sensors on its smartphones. The back of the phone is dominated by a single 47.2 megapixel camera with a 1-inch sensor and large lens. Most smartphone manufacturers send three to four small and dubiously useful rear cameras to the back of their devices, but Sharp offers a giant camera for everyone, capable of producing excellent quality photos.
Next to the larger camera sensor is a smaller 2-megapixel sensor, but Google’s product page translation calls it the “remote sensor” so you can not take pictures with it.
The screen is something to write about. The phone has a 6.6-inch Sharp, 2730 x 1260 IGZO OLED and an excellent in-class 240Hz refresh rate. After all, the show Condition, Unlike other leading Android manufacturers, emphasizes the use of curved screens that distort the sides of the screen. No manufacturer has yet explained the benefits of a curved screen.
Snapdragon 8Gen1 has to accept the challenge of delivering Android at 240fps (good luck with that). Other details include 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and a 5,000 mAh battery. It has a microSD slot, IP68 dust and water resistance, 12MP front camera and USB-C port. The overhead headphone jack got a sharp spot.
Qualcomm’s “3D Sonic Max” fingerprint sensor is another great feature you can get on hard-to-find smartphones. The in-display fingerprint sensor makes a name for itself because it is so large. Sharp did not specify its size, however Previous offers The sensor is large enough to fit Two Fingers. The main problem with in-screen fingerprint sensors is that the glass screen, which has no haptic indication of where to place your finger, makes it easier to miss the sensor and miss your fingerprint. Zooming in on everything is the obvious (albeit expensive) way for fingerprint sensors on the display to operate more reliably. Qualcomm announced this sensor in 2019, and the number of phones that have adopted it since then is indescribably single digits.
Overall, the R7 looks like a very interesting tile phone, which usually fixes most of the things we complain about in reviews. A great camera, a great fingerprint sensor, a flat screen and a headphone jack? Please note, other smartphone manufacturers.
