Sharp has officially introduced a new smartphone Aquos S2

The smartphone features a 5.5-inch 4K display with nearly zero bezels on top and sides. It's also a much smaller device: a 5.5-inch display is tucked into the body of a conventional 4.9-inch smartphone. It will be available in Black, White, Blue, and Mint Blue color options. Talking about its software fronts, the Sharp Aquos S2 runs on Google's latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system with company's proprietary Smile UX custom UI skin running on top.

The company is also offering the RoboS AI that was first introduced with the Sharp's RoBoHon launched previous year in Japan. The device uses FFD (Free Form Display) technology to dig small holes precisely in the screen for front camera and receiver.

As we mentioned earlier, the smartphone comes in two different versions, based on their processing unit configurations: one variant with a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor clubbed with Adreno 508 GPU, 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM, & 64GB of native storage and the other with 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor paired with Adreno 512 GPU, 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM & 128GB of internal storage. This phone actually comes in two variants, a more affordable variant of the phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 630 SoC and comes with 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM, while the other variant comes with Snapdragon 660 SoC and 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM. There is a dual SIM slot that fits 2 nano SIM cards or one SIM and a microSD card (128GB max). In the camera department, there is a dual camera setup featuring 12MP and 8MP sensors that offer f/1.75 aperture and PDAF.

On the back, the S2 has a camera unit that looks an terrible lot like what everyone is expecting to see on the next iPhone. The front imager has an 8-megapixel 1.4um sensor with f/2.0 aperture, which is pretty good given how compact the module is.
