Sharp has introduced some of its new products at a launch event held in Japan. The company has also unveiled its new flagship called Sharp Aquos Zero.
The handset had already been shown during IFA 2018 in Berlin but did not have a specific name at that time. Now it is all set to blow the market, and one of the highlights of the device is that it is the first to use an OLED display from Sharp itself.
The Sharp Aquos Zero features a 6.2-inch notch display with 2992×1440 pixel resolution (Quad HD) and 18.7:9 aspect ratio. With HDR support, it has a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut. In addition, it is the top of the line display with the world’s lightest OLED technology, weighing only 146 grams.
In terms of design, we see that the Aquos Zero is made with magnesium alloy and carbon fiber back panel. It has a curved edge display with thinner edges. On the camera front, it features a single 22.6-megapixel rear camera with a flash and the fingerprint sensor just below. At the front, the company preferred to place an 8-megapixel selfie shooter.
In the processing part, we see that the new device has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor, coupled with Adreno 630 GPU, allied to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. All this delivers enough power to run the new Android 9.0 Pie operating system. To deliver all power to it, there is a 3130mAh battery capacity.
Finally, we see that it is also resistant to water and dust (IP68 certified), also features Dolby Vision and stereo sound with Dolby Atmos. It should be available to buy in Japan at the end of the year, no clue on pricing yet.
