Sharp Launches another Phone with a Dual Notch Design

It still looks weird

While we are in an era where brands are pushing for an all-screen, notch free display, Sharp remains to be stubborn with its dual notch-sporting phones. After last year’s atrocious-looking Aquos R2 Compact, Sharp is back once again with the peculiar concept with the Aquos R3.

As a successor to the Aquos R2 Compact, the Aquos R3 has a bigger display—this time with a quad HD resolution—along with a more powerful set of internals: Snapdragon 855, 6GB RAM, and 128GB internal storage.

The Aquos R3 gets dual rear cameras: a 12.2-megapixel sensor dedicated for photography and a 20-megapixel sensor dedicated for video. The front camera gets an upgrade, this time with a 16.3-megapixel sensor.

Keeping the lights on is a 3200mAh battery with 11w wireless charging and Android Pie out of the box.
