Sharp AQUOS R2: specs and features

The Sharp AQUOS R2 carries a 6-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1440 x 3040p. The display has a 19:9 aspect ratio and minimum bezels on all sides. The notched design on the top helps in increasing the screen-to-body ratio even more. This phone runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM. The latter can be expanded via a microSD card by up to 400GB. 

The camera configuration of the phone is also quite interesting. It has a 16.3MP sensor for selfies and a dual rear camera setup. The setup includes a 16.3MP sensor for video recording and a 22.6 MP sensor for clicking photographs. The special video recording sensor can record 4K in ultra-wide angle (135°). The angle narrows down to compensate for shaking sometimes. Also, the AI present in the phone clicks photos automatically while recording a video.
