February is running faster than ever, and with it several important launches have already arrived for the high-end Android mobile phones for this 2020. We don't know if the cancellation of the MWC in Barcelona has something to do, but there are already several manufacturers that are They have thrown into the water after that news.
The brand that concerns us today is Sharp, which recently introduced the AQUOS R5G, its new flagship for this first half of the year. It is a mobile with specifications that nothing should envy to other more famous manufacturers in this market, and also has a curious detail. These are the Features and price of the new Sharp AQUOS R5G.
Sharp AQUOS R5G, a full-fledged high-end mobile, which bets on the survival of the notch
To talk about Sharp is to immediately think of televisions, sound systems, or some classic appliances, but it turns out that This Japanese giant is also mobile. There are several smartphones that this brand has launched, and although they do not have the sales numbers of Samsung, Huawei or Xiaomi, it does not mean they are bad.
In fact, this new Sharp mobile calls our attention a lot, in principle because It has all the features of a top of range Current as: a lot of RAM, the latest Qualcomm chip or four rear cameras.
But there are more, unlike the rest, Sharp bets with the AQUOS R5G to keep the notch, and not one but twice! A bet may be risky, but that may be liked by some people.

Snapdragon 865 and up to 12 GB of RAM, with the R5G nothing is forgotten
As we mentioned above, the new AQUOS R5G is equipped with a very substantial configuration, led by Snapdragon 865, Qualcomm's newest and most powerful chip. With this, Sharp makes sure you don't have to worry at all about falling short of performance in a good season. What the processor is not everything? Aderzalo with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB storage expandable via microSD.
With these features, Sharp's AQUOS R5G becomes a perfect ally to play or perform tasks of great consumption of resources. Store movies, large files or render with the mobile? Fully allowed Against the R5G there is nothing to do if performance is involved.
But, beware, there is more, since the inclusion of Snapdragon 865 not only grants superior processing power, but returns to this mobile compatible with the new 5G network. You can navigate at full speed and consume 4K content without any problem with your data plan.
A screen that looks challengingly at the new Samsung
What is it worth having an incredible chip and large amounts of RAM If the screen is not able to show all that? As a good panel manufacturer, Sharp knows that, and that is why it includes an incredible screen for your new warship.
The Sharp AQUOS R5G has a 6.5-inch screen, compatible with Quad + HD resolution and Adobe RGB and Rich Color Technology Mobile color space, a couple of features that allow you, according to Sharp, to create a better sense of realism. In addition, expect nothing less than a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
I design with two notch, Sharp an believes in it, and makes the most of it
On a normal occasion, the theme of the notch will be discussed in the screen section, but in this case it needs to be more than mentioned. In principle, Sharp does not bet solely on maintaining it to position the front camera, but also dares more.
Why do we say it? Why the R5G has a second notch, located specifically at the bottom center of the screen. What's the point of having it ah? Well to locate the fingerprint sensor, and we dare to say that also to take the opposite to other manufacturers.
Positioning a second notch in that place is somewhat risky, since many may not like it because it takes away visual. But, And if they impose a new fashion? We do not know what to do about that, but we can assure you that Sharp will have to work very well the issue of Android gestures, or in the navigation bar, since both start from that place on the screen to work.
Four rear cameras, because the war for the crown is to the death
As in other sections that we have already commented, Sharp's AQUOS R5G is a mobile that rubs shoulders with the giants quietly. But What happens to the cameras? Well simple, Sharp aims to offer some incredible photographic capabilities.
In total, you will find a rear with four cameras aligned vertically and glued to the side. The main sensor curiously is not the largest of all, since it stays at only 12 MP and aperture f / 1.7. Then, s arrives the largest mobile sensor, oriented to the wide-angle photography, with 42 MP resolution, an aperture f / 2.9 and capacity of video capture in 8K.
The third camera is a 12 MP telephoto lens, with an aperture of f / 2.7 and 2X optical zoom. Already closing the rear cameras, the new Sharp R5G incorporates a fourth sensor, this time of depth (ToF), which helps to better recognize 3D environments.
The front camera for selfies know that reach 16 MP and will have f / 2.4 aperture, but we do not know any other details about it, apart from being integrated into a notch.
Everything is excellent in this mobile, but your battery can put it in check
Yes, as the title says, the R5G is a mobile that looks great everywhere, but in the section of the battery limps a little. While Samsung and Xiaomi's new top-of-the-range bet on batteries above 4500 mAh, Sharp equips his mobile with just 3730 mAh.
This is not that it is a bad figure in itself, but if the Japanese do not take good care of consumption, this mobile will run out of energy very quickly. A few days ago we criticized something similar in Google Pixel 4 in this comparison.
So far we do not know details about its compatibility with fast charging, or a possible wireless charging, but it is normal that, at least, the first one has it. As far as we know more we will add it.
Availability, price and other data of the new Sharp AQUOS R5G
So far the date on which this fabulous mobile is available for sale, as well as its price has not been announced. However, we know that they arrive in purple, gray and white; come with Photoshop Express preinstalled; Android 10 and Dolby Atmos sound.
A striking price, a good marketing campaign, and good availability in stores, maybe you can give a great boost to this mobile. We liked it a lot, and we appreciate the boldness in design matters, and you?
