Sharp keeps churning out revolutionary phones and this time it’s rather the special features than the design that wow us. The newcomer is dubbed Sharp Aquos R and it debuted today in Japan, with a Snapdragon 835 processor in tow.


This handset packs an IGZO WQHD 5.3 inch screen, with HDR 10 support and the promise to play 4K HDR content with ease. There’s 4 GB of RAM inside, 64 GB of storage and a 3160 mAh battery as well. These specs are crammed within an 153 x 74 x 8.7 mm thick body. Sharp Aquos R has an USB Type C port, audio jack and the new fangled Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.

There’s also a front placed fingerprint scanner and this model is IPX8 certified, resilient to dust and water. We didn’t forget about the camera, Sharp Aquos R sporting a 22.6 megapixel main cam with F/1.9 aperture, with fast autofocus, OIS and EIS. This device runs Android 7.1 and also uses a special type of AI called EMOPA, that’s able to interpret your emotions.

It can be used on its own or combined with a special dock called ROBOKUKU. Selfies are taken with a 16 MP front camera and the Sharp AI is able to recognize your face through it. The system also lets you know about news, weather, alarm and reminders. We don’t have any intel about the price, but these specs should fit around $800 range.
