Since the tech giant Apple joined the bezel-less smartphone trend, more and more smartphone manufacturing companies are following its pathway. And today in this article I will show you an amazing new Bezel-Less smartphone which is an iPhone X rival and not only that even it is 3X cheaper than iPhone X.
This New Bezel-Less Smartphone Is An iPhone X-Rival 3x Cheaper
Sharp Aquos R Compact. That’s the name of the new proposal of the Japanese giant with a device without borders on screen in 4.9 inches.
Although many think that Xiaomi was the precursor of the fashion of the mobile with the borderless screen, Sharp was the first to try. Sharp Aquos Crystal has already introduced this fashion, and the Japanese company tries again in its mid-range. This is the small Sharp Aquos R Compact.
This new Sharp Aquos R Compact follows the design line that Sharp is including on all its devices, but focused on the midrange. And although the screen decreases to the 4.9 inches, do not deceive yourself: this R Compact has much to say. The secret is in its hardware.
Here is the list of specifications of the new Sharp Aquos R Compact:-
- Screen: 4.9-inch borderless display with IGZO technology, Full HD + (2032 X 1080) and a refresh rate of 120Hz.
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 660.
- Storage: 32GB internal memory
- RAM: 3GB RAM.
- Camera: 12.4MP rear camera with LED flash and an 8MP front camera.
- Battery: 2 500 mAh battery with QuickCharge 3.0 and USB Type C.
- OS: Android 8.0 Oreo under the EMPA 7.0 layer.
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0, IP68 certification, Wi-Fi, GPS.
- Colors: Gold, white, silver and black.
- Price: not specified.
- IGZO screen with very high refresh rate: 120 Hz
The Sharp Aquos R Compact screen has a refresh rate of 120Hz, which includes the latest Apple iPad. This, combined with its hardware and panel resolution, promises a huge quality in the multimedia aspect. Always on paper and waiting to try it out physically.
The IGZO panels, typical of Sharp, offer high resolution and sharpness by reducing the thickness of the display assembly reverberating with the thinness of this mobile. They consume less than an ordinary LCD panel and, thanks to its high refresh rate, the Sharp Aquos R Compact should offer a smoother image with fluid movements between transitions.
Unfortunately, this device will have exclusivity with the Japanese bank SoftBank, reason why we will hardly see it outside the Japanese country. Its availability in that country will be in December, and it looks like it’s one of the best in the mid-range range segment. At least for those looking for this kind of designs without screen borders. Yes, it means that if you want a smartphone like iPhone X then it will be a good choice for you. As you don’t even have to spend a lot on a device to get iPhone X like design, the Aquos Sharp R Compact is 3X cheaper than iPhone X.
This opens the door to the possibility that we see these designs in more intermediate ranges, away from the high spheres of Android. As we all know that how difficult it was to find devices with screens smaller than 5 inches, so the idea of having a compact and well-used phone makes us simply delicious.
