Sharp Aquos Sense4. Sharp has released four new smartphones for the Japanese market, all of which are based on Snapdragon chipsets – two models are compatible with LTE and the other two models support 5G connectivity.
The basic name of the Sharp Zero 5G is misleading because it is actually the best model. The 6.4 ”OLED display has a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sample rate. It supports HDR and has 1080p + resolution, with a fingerprint reader embedded below.
The phone is powered by Snapdragon 765G chipset, which comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There will also be an 8/128GB option when the phone launches in the coming months. The phone runs Android 10.
On the back, we start with the 48MP main camera (f / 1.8). It is mated to an 8MP telephoto camera with 13.1MP ultra-wide cam (125) and 3x magnification (79mm). The selfie camera has a 16.3 Megapixel sensor.
Like its three siblings, the Zero 5G base is IP68 / IPX5 dust and water-resistant. Its 4,050 mAh battery is on the small side, with no mention of charging speed.
Next up is the Sharp Sense 4, which forms the basis for the remaining two models. It is practically small by today’s standards with a 5.8 ”display (1080p +, IGZO panel). Take a look at the fingerprint reader below the display, which is a design element we haven’t seen in years. If you hold your finger and hold for a few seconds, it will activate the wireless charging system.
Powered by Sharp Aquos Sense4 Snapdragon 720G chipset, Sharp claims to offer twice as much performance as the previous model (based on the Sense 3S630 chip). The new model comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage
Sharp Aquos Sense4
The back features a 12MP main cam (f / 2.0), 12MP ultraviolet (121 °), and an 8MP telephoto lens with 2x magnification (53mm). On the front, the 8MP selfie game lives in one place.
The Sharp Sense 4 is equipped with a 4,570 mAh battery (refer to this number). The phone will be available in Light Copper, Silver, and Black colors by the end of this year.
Sharp Aquos Sense4 Plus
The Sharp Sense 4 Plus is small but small – it can move up to a 6.7 “display. This is not an IGZO panel, but it has a 90 Hz refresh rate and a 120 Hz touch sample rate. The fingerprint reader has moved to the back, which is a very sensible setting.
The chipset is identical to the S720G, but on the Plus model, it has 8GB and 128GB of RAM and storage, respectively. However, despite the large chassis, the battery capacity drops to 4,120mAh.
The Sharp Sense 4 plus camera is a mixed bag. The main shooter gets a large 48MP sensor on the back of a bright f / 1.8 lens. However, the ultraviolet camera resolution is reduced to 5MP and the field of view to 115. This is even better than the zoom game, which is completely gone, replacing the two 2MP modules (macro and depth). The selfie game also gets a 2MP depth sensor friend.
Sharp is the 5G version of Sense 4 based on Sense 5G. It replaces the chipset that, apparently, was selected for the Snapdragon 690 job. It gets the same 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as the LTE version, although the storage is now UFS, which provides faster reading and writing.
Interestingly, this model is set to launch out of the box with Android 11, while its 4G dual version will start with 10. The screen, the camera, and the battery are one and the same.
Currently, there is no word on the price of AQUOS Zero 5G Basic, Sense 5G, Sense 4, and Sense 4 Plus.
