Sharp Aquos R6 debuts with 240Hz screen and enormous 1” sensor

Yordan, 17 May 2021

Sharp has announced the Aquos R6 smartphone for the Japanese market - a flagship with only one functioning camera on the back, but one that comes with a huge 1” sensor. It is the biggest camera sensor put in a mobile phone ever, and it was developed jointly with Leica all the way from R&D through lens design to image quality adjustment.

The phone also comes with the world’s first Pro IGZO OLED 6.67” screen that allows for a dynamic refresh rate between 1Hz and 240Hz for finding the perfect balance between power-saving and smoothness. Resolution is WUXGA+, which means 2,730 x 1,260 pixels.

The Sharp Aquos R6 is powered by a Snapdragon 888 chipset. It will be offered with only one memory option - 12GB RAM + 128GB of storage and only local carriers will get to sell it at first.

The camera sensor allows for 20MP stills, and Leica and Sharp have also redesigned the lens in front - it is 7P with an f/1.9 aperture and the focal length equivalent of 19 mm.

There’s also a ToF sensor next to the main camera, a single flash; the only image stabilization Sharp and Leica provided is electronic (EIS).

The massive sensor can do an outstanding job in low light conditions according to the official press release. It should offer better dynamic range and reduced noise compared to just about every other smartphone sensor out there.

The rest of the the Aquos R6 highlights include a 12MP selfie shooter as well as an under-display fingerprint scanner. The battery is 5,000 mAh, and the Aquos R6 is waterproof and dustproof.

Accept defeat for what lmfao, bruh it ain't that deep, like I said, if it does exist why isn't it being used. It's clearly a renaming scheme, I'm not saying it never existed, but it's being sold as 888, but seems like you can...

Yet again, it's still on benchmarks and on this site. What's written black on white, won't give you right. So stop trying, and accept your defeat.

and again, it's been months, the 875 hasn't been talked about in the past months, since last year if I'm not mistaken, if they were to release it, I doubt it'll be for 2021. Edit: Also on the lastest post about it, there were ma...
