Sharp has rolled out a mini version of the Essential Phone, known as the Aquos R Compact.
The company in fact couldn’t pull off the design. The phone has the same features as Essential but it has larger bottom bezels and a real home button.
But usually such bezel less displays are only seen on larger phones. Despite of it all, it’s the first mini phone introducing the top notch features.
Its refresh rate is as same as the iPad pro and the specs include 16.4-megapixel rear-facing camera; 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 4.9-inch Full HD display with a 120hz refresh rate, 2,500mAh battery, Android Oreo with a custom skin, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, and USB-C.
The mini version comes in 4 colors; white, black, silver, and gold. It will be launched in December through Softbank but will be limited to Japan only.
