How many hertz is too much hertz in a cell phone? THE Sharp it seems that it has not yet reached its limit: the company announced on Wednesday (25) the Aquos Zero 2, a high-end smartphone with powerful hardware, light body and 6.4-inch OLED screen with 240 Hz refresh rate.
As with Aquos Zero, the main attraction of Aquos Zero 2 is to be as light as possible: it is only 143 grams, three grams less than its predecessor and much less than the Galaxy S10 + (175 grams) and iPhone 11 Pro Max ( 226 grams). This is the lowest weight on the market on a 6-inch phone, according to Sharp. I don’t know if people really care about it, but the Japanese are really weird.
The Aquos Zero 2’s 6.4-inch OLED screen has a resolution of 2340 × 1080 pixels and a drop-shaped notch for the 8-megapixel selfie camera. There is a fingerprint reader under the display, and it is also possible to unlock the device through facial recognition. The 240 Hz refresh rate is double that of other mobile gamers, such as the Asus ROG Phone II.
Inside, Aquos Zero 2 has what we expect from a premium smartphone: Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB internal storage. The main rear camera has a resolution of 12 megapixels (f / 1.7), while the ultrawide takes 20 megapixel photos on its f / 2.4 aperture lens. It runs Android 10 from the factory.
The back is made of glass and there is protection against water and dust, but it is clear that such a light smartphone needed to come with some negative point: the battery has a capacity of only 3,130 mAh.
The Aquos Zero 2 starts to be sold in Japan in December, still with no price disclosed, along with other intermediate smartphones from Sharp that we will certainly not see in Brazil. Would you choose a smartphone for the screen refresh rate?
