Japanese manufacturer Sharp electronics held the presentation of smartphones of the latest generation. Characteristics of the device can be called a flagship. In particular, the Aquos S2 has dual main camera (12 + 8 MP) and edge-to-edge display. In full compliance with the latest trends, the smartphone pleases an affordable price. Interestingly, the company started to promote edge-to-edge smartphones in 2013, but they did not find the demand among users, perhaps because of the too high prices at a more affordable cell phone.
Externally, the Sharp Aquos S2 simultaneously reminiscent of several smartphones in the Chinese flagship Xiaomi Mi Mix, cellular Phone Essential from the Creator of Android Andy Rubin and not yet announced, but known to us for numerous information leaks of the new iPhone. However, the Sharp engineers did not move the front module from the upper part of the front panel at the bottom, as it did in Xiaomi. Also, the developers boasted that the area occupied by the front camera module, fell by 12%. At the same time, the Japanese product has the classic “box” under the display, where the Home button with integrated fingerprint scanner (the alleged iPhone 8, this space will occupy the screen), with a width of 3.6 mm.
