Sharp has just announced the existence of Aquos R Compact, a smaller version of their Aquos R range. Unlike other Aquos models, the Aquos R Compact has an edge-to-edge screen similar to Essential Phone. The Aquos R Compact has a 4.9 inch IGZO LCD display with 2032 x 1080 resolution. This screen has a 120Hz refresh rate, twice as fast as most smartphones on the market today.
Aquos R Compact uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 as a processor, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. This smartphone is equipped with a 16.4 MP camera on the back and 8MP camera for the front. For OS problems, Sharp is already using Android 8.0 Oreo with EMOPA 7.0
This smartphone has a 2500 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0. Aquos R Compact will be available in Japan in December. Sharp-made mobile phone will be present in 4 color choices, namely gold, silver, black and white.
The Aquos R Compact design looks similar to Essential Phone, a smartphone made by Andy Rubin, an Android creator. It even has a bump at the top. Only, this smartphone Sharp has a bezel on the bottom is quite thick and also the Home button.
One interesting thing is Sharp decided to make a phone with a thin bezel with a relatively small screen size. Usually a smartphone without a bezel has a large screen size.
