Can A Notch Smartphone Look Any Worse Than This?

  • The double-notched phone you've all been waiting for is here

The solution is a handset with what are essentially two notches invading the screen. Up until now, though, we haven't seen dual notches. Sharp equipped the Aquos R2 Compact with a 5.2-inch 2280 x 1080 LCD.

Sharp is a company that is more renowned for making display panels rather than for making smartphones. They still have Android flip phones over there, after all.

Sharp Aquos R2 compact price and availability The handset now doesn't have a price but Sharp has announced that it is scheduled to be launched after mid-January 2019. To gain the momentum in this highly competing smartphone segment, Sharp is aiming to bring a new design language with its reportedly new Aquos R2 compact phone. The waterdrop notch is something that is becoming increasingly popular on phones such as the OnePlus 6T, Huawei Mate 20, and various OPPO and Vivo phones. It had a single notch at the top and a big bezel at the bottom. Why does it exist?

Rooney to wear 10 shirt, captain's armband in England farewell
While Thursday's match will bring the curtain down on Rooney's England career, Southgate will hand out a "few debuts" to others. Rooney made a romantic return to boyhood club Everton last season, scoring 10 league goals.

The bottom one of these includes the R2 Compact's fingerprint scanner and the top one houses the front-facing camera sensor.

The predecessor Aquos R Compact from previous year measured 132 x 66. x 9.6mm and featured a smaller 4.9-inch display. It is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Its a 2,500mAh battery, so even in its best shape, its not that great. This should improve UI smoothness, and the effect also will be felt on games which support a 120Hz refresh rate.

The phone boasts a 3.5mm headphone jack (perhaps, thanks to all the room Sharp saved by not using an in-display FP reader), complete with Dolby Atmos support. At the bottom, meanwhile, there's a second gap into which the combination fingerprint sensor and home button is positioned. The fingerprint button also works as an application switcher. Google's Android P Developer Preview 1 came with the support for a "display cutout.' The 'cutouts" are said to be aligned at the centre (like before) and at any particular corner. If the design makes you look the other way, don't worry, chances are you'll never lay your eyes on one in the flesh, as its release will be limited to Japan and possibly other close-by countries.
