Sharp has launched its latest flagship called AQUOS Zero in Japan today. The AQUOS Zero comes packed with powerful specifications. It weighs 146 grams and is mentioned to be the world’s lightest 6.2″ smartphone. The company has opted for the Magnesium alloy frame with kevlar back to reduce the weight. It is also one of the first smartphones to come with Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.
The device sports a 6.2-inch OLED display with Quad HD+ (2992 x 1440 pixels) resolution and Dolby Vision support. Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform coupled with Kryo 385 GPU and Adreno 630 GPU. There is 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The company is not offering a MicroSD card slot or higher storage variant. It also comes equipped with stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res Audio support.
However, there is no 3.5mm audio jack on this device. Instead, the company is bundling the 3.5mm to USB Type-C adapter for free. While we are seeing entry-level smartphones with dual rear cameras, Sharp still sticks with the single rear camera. It sports a 22.6MP camera on the rear with f/1.9 aperture and OIS. For selfies, there is an 8MP front-facing camera. It is also IP68 certified for the water and dust resistance.
It measures 154 x 73 x 8.8 mm and weighs 146 grams. The device is backed by a 3,130mAh non-removable battery and supports fast charging. While there is a circular fingerprint sensor on the rear, the device also supports face unlock. As of now, there is no word on the pricing or availability of the device.
