The design of Sharp’s upcoming Android smartphone seems to have surfaced online, thanks to some alleged case renders that have been posted on the leaks aggregator site, Slashleaks. As mentioned on the site, the device renders encased inside Spigen cases is Aquos R3 and looking at this design of the device, you would find it similar to the Aquos R2 Compact that arrived with the dual notch display.
The said Aquos R3 also has dual notches – one at the top which has a waterdrop-styled shape and at the bottom to accommodate fingerprint scanner. However, compared to the Aquos R2 Compact, the top notch is accompanied by thick bezels and the bottom notch isn’t big in height.
On the back, the device has vertically-placed dual rear cameras and an LED flash is positioned on the right of this camera module. The right side of the frame holds the volume rockers and power button. There’s one more button down to them which seems to be the dedicated shutter button for the camera. The phone also has a USB Type-C port at the bottom and an earphone jack at the top.
Specifications of the device are unknown, but it isn’t difficult to assume that it could come with Snapdragon 855 processor, OLED/IGZO IPC LCD display and run Android Pie. It may arrive with an IP-rating like its predecessors. We can’t comment on the camera specifications, however. Stay tuned while we collect more information on the same.
