Sharp today unveiled not only the flagship smartphone Sharp Aquos R7, but also a budget phone called Sharp Aquos Wish 2.
As the name itself suggests, the Sharp Aquos Wish 2 is the successor to the Aquos Wish released last December. The smartphone features a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 1,520 x 720 pixels. At the same time, the frame around the perimeter is very wide, even in promotional images.
The smartphone is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 single-core system, which works in combination with 4 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64 GB of built-in UFS 2.1 flash memory. There’s also support for microSD cards up to 1TB.
The phone got a 13-megapixel camera sensor on the back and an 8-megapixel sensor in the front for taking selfies and video calls. It runs the Android operating system out of the box with the company’s own user interface. The device is powered by a 3,730 mAh battery and supports PD 3.0 fast charging.
The company added that it cares about the environment, and the Sharp Aquos Wish 2 smartphone is made with recycled materials. The body is 35% recycled plastic.
The phone is dust and moisture resistant and is available in four colors – white, gray, blue and coral. Price has not yet been reported, but it is known that sales in Japan will begin in June.
