Sharp just announced the new AQUOS line of smartphones with the new zero2 flagship, sense 3, and sense 3 plus. The latter two are the company’s midrangers.
The AQUOS zero2 features a 6.4 curved FHD+ OLED display with a 240Hz refresh rate. In comparison, this is double of the refresh rate of the ASUS ROG Phone II. The company mentioned that it is the lightest 6-inch phone at just 143 grams.
In its waterdrop notch is its 8MP selfie cam, while hidden away in its display is an in-display fingerprint reader. At the back is a dual camera with a 12MP f/1.7 main sensor and a 20MP f/2.4 ultra-wide-angle secondary.
The zero2 packs a Snapdragon 855 chipset along with 8GB of RAM and 256GB UFS 3.0 storage. Powering the device is a 3130mAh battery, which given the high refresh rate seems a bit small.
It also is water and dustproof thanks to its IPX5/IPX8/IPX6 ratings. Out of the box, it will run on Android 10.
It will be available in Astro Black and Misty White. The phone will be available starting December.
The AQUOS sense3 packs a 5.5-inch IGZO panel with FHD+ resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. On the front, the device has a bezel on the top and bottom which houses the 8MP camera and fingerprint reader, respectively, while a dual-camera setup is found at the back with a 12MP f/2.0 primary and a 12MP f/2.4 ultrawide angle lens.
It is powered by a Snapdragon 630 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The device packs a 4000mAh battery and runs on Android 9 Pie.
The bigger AQUOS sense 3 plus has a 6-inch IGZO FHD+ display and dual stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support. Like the sense 3, the plus version has an 8MP front camera.
The AQUOS sense3 plus has a Snapdragon 636 chipset with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of storage. Like the base sense3, the sense3 plus runs on Android 9 Pie and has a 4000mAh battery pack.
