Sharp AQUOS R3 lands with two display notches, Snapdragon 855 and more

It is a known fact that the higher the screen ratio of a mobile phone, the better the visual experience. This seems to be a major determinant of buyer’s trend for Android phones and many phone manufacturers have been chasing various ways of reducing the bezels, thus increasing the screen ratio.

We have seen the iPhone X-styled screen notch, water drop notch, punch-hole design and then the sliding and pop-up camera design which ensures a notch-less design. Sharp has released a new design style on its latest flagship Snapdragon 855-powered AQUOS R. Sharp Aquos R3 features a waterdrop notch at the top holding a selfie camera and at the bottom a wider notch which forms part of an oblong-shaped front stereo speaker design. The speaker utilizes Dolby Atmos sound technology.

Sharp has for quite some time been utilizing the notch design on its phones even before they became trendy. Thus, the company could be regarded as a pioneer of the design style.  The screen ratio of the device wasn’t revealed but the device has a sizeable amount of bezel at the bottom edge despite the bottom notch. The gadget even appears to have a second speaker at the top edge meaning the sound output will be breathtaking.
