The Sharp Aquos R: Premium handset with a “Creepy” accessory.

The name Sharp isn’t too well known in the smartphone world. The japanese company is responsible for the “Aquos” series of Tv’s and the line of smartphones under the same name. They primarily deal with mid-ranged devices, but the company has decided to go all in with their next device, the Aquos R.

A treat for any spec hungry techie, the Aquos R is sporting a 5.5 inch display at QHD resolution (2560 x 1440) with support for HDR 10- though it’s specified if it’s going to be LCD or AMOLED. HDR displays are becoming a trend in the smartphone world,, and it’ll do Sharp good having a phone at the forefront. Powering the phone is the latest and greatest chip set from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835 SoC accompanied by the Adreno 540 GPU. This is all backed up by 4 GB’s of RAM and 64 GB’s of on board storage. Keeping the lights on is a decent 3,160 mAh battery. As for the camera, we have a 22.6 megapixel rear camera with a 90 degree field of view. Up front, there’s a 16.3 megapixel front shooter. A formidable camera duo on paper, as we all know, numbers aren’t everything. This device will ship with Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box.

A standard premium smartphone, but that’s not all this device is packing. Along with the Aquos R is a charging dock which, during a call, will turn itself to face the user. It can hear you and keep track of your movements in order to keep the mouth piece facing you. A bit creepy to think about, but interesting to check out. What do you all think of this new device? Does this device and it’s eccentric dock make you consider picking one up? Let me know in the comments below.
