Japanese Electronics giant, Sharp, recently announced its first OLED display flagship at IFA 2018 labelled as Aquos Zero. The company known for its quality LCD panels showcased the handset that not only has an OLED panel but also has a curved display design and high-end specifications. Now, the brand has held a product launch conference in Taiwan announcing the Aquos Zero there. The company has not yet declared prices as an official release will be in January. However, the handset is believed to cost around NT$20,000 (about RMB 4,500).
The big highlight of the Aquos Zero is, obviously the curved 2k OLED panel. Sharp boasts that this is the lightest OLED flagship around tipping the scales at just 146g. That is achieved by the carbon fiber back in conjunction with the magnesium alloy frames that also make it a sturdy device. The display is 6.2-inches and has a pixel density of 538ppi and a resolution of 2992×1440p owing to the notch. The curved display has support for HDR as well as 100 percent DCI-P3 wide colour gamut.
Under the hood, the Aquos Zero rocks a Snapdragon 845 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There’a single 22.6MP rear sensor beneath which lies a fingerprint reader while the front has an 8MP shooter. It runs Android 9.0 Pie which is always good to hear on the back of a 3130mAh battery. It also comes with IP68 water resistance and Dolby Atmos stereo sound.
