Michail, 08 May 2024

Sharp is extending its portfolio with two new devices – the Aquos R9 and Aquos wish4 both of which will be exclusive to Japan initially with planned expansion to markets like Taiwan, Indonesia, and Singapore later on.

Both phones feature minimalist designs developed by Miyake Design and the Aquos 9 is once again taking a camera-first approach with its trio of 50MP sensors co-developed with Leica.
