We don’t hear much about Sharp phones these days, mainly because they are available in Japan and a choose a few other areas. However, the company has just unveiled a new model, the Aquos R6, which has an impressive technology, such as Engadget Japan they say. This includes a Leica-recognized camera with a large sensor that raises a number of questions about Leica’s relationship with Huawei.
Sharp teamed up with Leica to design a 20-megapixel camera with a 1-inch sensor, one of the largest available on any phone. It worked with Leica on all digital cameras, including a sensor (possibly Sony-built), a 19mm f / 1.9-angle (35mm equivalent) lens, and a digital display. The design of the 7 lens also made Leica’s nickname “Summicron”, which seems to give you a bit of a twist. However, the Aquos R6 has one rear camera, so enhancement (from top to telephoto) is done by numbers, not Optically.
Sharp’s relationship with Leica is interesting, because rumors have been circulating yesterday Leica ends its relationship with Huawei, despite both companies already he refuses this. With Sharp’s new contract, however, Leica is no more alone for Huawei, at least. Whether it will also work with other emerging companies like Xiaomi, as they say, is unknown.
The Aquos R6 has a camera-like screen, too. The 6.6-inch screen, 2,730 x 1,260 HDR displays up to 2,000 bright colors – the most available on any phone, Sharp says. To capture the number, Sharp said it created an OLED display using IGZO technology, although it is not clear how it works. To prevent battery drain from the bright display, Sharp is said to have developed a way to reduce the refresh rate to 1Hz while the visual image is being displayed.
Another attractive feature for security professionals is the dual-finger interface. The Aquos R6 is obviously one of Qualcomm’s first used phones 3D Sonic Max finger-approved system, first announced in 2019. The larger area makes it easier to identify fingerprints, as well as allowing users to enter with two fingers at a time for protection.
Other features include a Snapdragon 888 processor, 12GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage and a 5,000 mAh battery to support such a large screen. There is no word on the price or availability, but you may not be able to get it to the US.
