The Japanese consumer electronics brand Sharp has released a new Android flagship named Aquos Zero 2. It is a direct successor to Sharp Aquos Zero which was launched last year. Some of the key highlights of the newer version are 240Hz refresh rate display, all-glass design, and Android 10 out of the box.
The Sharp Aquos Zero 2 sports a 6.4-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) OLED display with an insane 240Hz refresh rate. Although, it is not the first smartphone to offer such a high refresh rate as Xiaomi's Black Shark 2 has done that already. Under the hood, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor coupled with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM. There is 256GB of UFS 3.0 internal storage but no details regarding microSD card support.
On the back panel, it has a 12.2-megapixel camera with f/1.7 aperture combined with a 20.1-megapixel wide-angle sensor (125-degree FoV) with f/2.4 aperture. There is an 8-megapixel front camera with features like AI Live Story and AI Live Shutter. The whole package is powered by a 3,130mAh battery. It runs Android 10 out of the box which makes it first such smartphone in the world and thus beating upcoming OnePlus 7T series to claim the title. Other features include in-display fingerprint scanner, NFC, and face recognition unlocking.
Sharp has released the Aquos Zero 2 in Misty White and Astro Black color variants. There are no words on pricing but it will be released sometime during upcoming winters.
