Sharp presented the Aquos S2 model in Beijing. The phone is eye catching with a frameless screen, and photo enthusiasts will love it too.
Sharp Aquos S2 joins the group of the smartphones with a frameless display. Its 5.5-inch IGZO screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2040 pixels occupies almost the entire front of the phone - only a distinctive indentation on the front camera is left. It's pretty average, it has 8 megapixels. But the rear camera is already more advanced. It has two lenses and allows you to achieve a blurry background. The main body of the rear camera is 12 megapixels and it lurks behind the f/1.75 lens, while the secondary is 8-megapixel. A fingerprint reader is mounted under the screen.

The first of the variants will get the Snapdragon 630 processor and 4 GB RAM and 64 GB flash memory, while the second will have the Snapdragon 660 and a 6 + 128 GB memory. There will also be a slot for microSD, NFC, USB-C or LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. All supplies a 3020 mAh rechargeable battery. The phone has dimensions of 141.8 x 72 x 7.9 mm and weighs 140 g and the casing will be offered in black, white, blue and turquoise colours. Prices will be 2499 and 3499 yuan, or 373 and 521 dollars.
