Design

Sharp Aquos R2

The R2 has a unique design that’s more attractive than what we typically see from Sharp. The Metal body with aluminium frame has always been a good combination. As expected, the Metal body was nicely polished to perfection, with IPX5, IPX8 and IP6X certifications.

Turning over to the sides, it measures 9mm in thickness and weighs 181g overall. It’s available in Black and White colors, making it more premium.

Display

It’s safe to say that Sharp really loves their selfie notched screen. This will delight those who don’t want their selfie camera on the bottom bezel. There’s a physical home button at the bottom bezel which doubles as the fingerprint scanner.

The 6-inch IGZO IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is literally out of this world. With a resolution of 1440 x 3040 pixels and 561 pixel per inch density, watch all your movies in sharp detail. The screen dishes out a 19:9 aspect ratio, stretches up to 77.8% screen-to-body ratio with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
