Foxconn-owned Sharp was one of the OEMs who caught up with the full-screen, bezel-less smartphone trend which became the trend in the second half of last year. The company released the Aquos S2 smartphone with a bezel-less design, and the device was also the world’s first Snapdragon 630-powered smartphone. The Aquos S2 is about getting a successor, and that is the Sharp Aquos S3. If you think the Aquos S2’s design was fantastic, wait until you see that of the soon-to-be-released Aquos S3 whose pictures just leaked.
You might have seen some grainy photos of the S3 or the pictures accompanying its TENAA listing which are not too superb. We serve you clear images of the Sharp Aquos S3 which appeared on Taiwan’s National Communications Commission (NCC) website. The photos show how the design of the device looks like when viewed from the front and rear aspects. The front tends to look similar to that of the Aquos S2, except that the notch at the top is more extensive, as it accommodates not just the selfie camera, but also the receiver speaker and one other sensor whose function is unknown. At the rear, the Aquos S3 keeps up also with the dual camera design found on its predecessor. The cameras have a slight bump and is aligned vertically with the LED flash at the bottom. What differentiates the Aquos S2’s rear design from the upcoming model is the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the Aquos S3.
