With the Aquos R5G, Sharp has introduced a new smartphone in Japan with 5G support and a quad camera setup, in which the main camera can even record videos in 8k.
With the Aquos R5G, the Japanese manufacturer Sharp today introduced its new flagship smartphone, which can convince at first glance with its specifications. The device has the current Snapdragon 865, which is supported by a proud 12 GB RAM and 256 GB internal storage. The smartphone also supports the new 5G mobile communications standard with its SoC.
The 6.5-inch display has a resolution of 3168 x 1440 pixels, and the panel has a waterdrop notch at the top, which hides the 16 MP selfie camera. On the other hand, there is a quad camera setup on the back, in which the main and telephoto cameras have a resolution of 12 MP. The wide-angle sensor comes with a resolution of 48 MP, with which videos can also be recorded in 8k. The fourth sensor is installed for the calculation of depth information.
The battery of the Aquos R5G is a bit tight with a capacity of 3730mAH, if you look at the power-hungry specifications of the smartphone. Nevertheless, the device should last a normal day. Sharp uses the current Android 10 as the operating system. Unfortunately, it is currently still unclear how expensive the smartphone will be and whether the device will also make it to Europe. At the beginning, the Aquos R5G will first be available in Japan in spring 2020.
