Announcement. Sharp Aquos sense6 - water and dust resistant and discreet telephoto

Sharp Aquos sense6 smartphone was announced to a coupledays ago. It will be sold only in Japan, it will not reach us. Judging by the characteristics - a typical middle class. Judging by the price ... But there is no price yet.

Heck. Well done, Sharpovtsy.A neat little smartphone. No extra bells and whistles, but with everything you need. An interesting observation. The size of the screen is just like the iPhone 13. The battery is bigger, but weighs lighter. But a little bigger - the frames around the screen are not so narrow.

Chipset - rarely found in naturelast year's Qualcomm Snapdragon 690. Slightly over three hundred thousand points in AnTuTu - modestly. With memory, too, they did not become especially zealous. 4 or 6 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of storage. Is there support for memory cards? Unclear. Rather yes than no.

The screen is small, 6.1 ″. It's called “IGZO OLED”.The resolution is 1080 × 2432, which with such a modest diagonal gives as much as 436 ppi. A billion colors. Found a mention that the polling rate of the sensor layer is 120 Hz. They don't talk about the screen itself. Apparently the standard 60Hz.

The battery is average, 4570 mAh. They promise a super-system of energy saving and “up to a week” of work on a single charge. Yes Yes. If you put your smartphone on the table and do not touch it.

A set of cameras. Front camera 8 MP. At the back is a trio of 48 + 8 + 8 MP.The main module, a wide-angle, unpretentious telephoto. I suspect that, as in the case of the Sharp Aquos zero6, the telephoto lens provides 2x magnification. Well done, right? What to put on stupid macro cameras and depth sensors - put on simple TV cameras, eh?

Traditionally for Japan, there is protection against water and dustaccording to the IP68 class. There is a fingerprint scanner. Probably built into the screen. Type-C, standard audio out, it's all in place. Wi-Fi seems to be the fifth. Support for 5G networks is also available.

Available from November.
