Announcement. Sharp Aquos wish2 is a compact 5G smartphone for Japan

In Japan, to the most respected Japanese publicSmartphone Sharp Aquos wish2 is presented. A compact, cute guy designed for those who think that modern smartphones have become too huge. Curious smartphone. It is a pity that it will not reach our geography.

As the name suggests, Sharp Aquoswish2 is the direct successor of the Sharp Aquos wish smartphone announced last winter. And there are very few differences visible to the naked eye. In fact, they just changed the chipset. Everything else matches. Even the dimensions have not changed one iota.

There was a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 chipset, it became a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset. It was slightly over three hundred thousand points in AnTuTu, it became almost four hundred thousand points. The difference is pleasant, but not fundamental.

Memory. As it was 4 GB of operational and 64 GB of permanent, it remains. By today's standards, it's pretty modest. Support for memory cards is available.

The screen is simple. Diagonal 5.7″ (81 cm²), obsolete semi-circular neckline. The resolution is low, only 720×1520. But on such a diagonal, this gives 295 dpi, which is quite normal. The refresh rate is the most common, 60 Hz. The screen matrix type is not named, but it is clearly something IPS-like.

The battery is small, only 3730 mAh. There is no fast charging.

Cameras are only single, 13 MP main, 8 MP front. The obvious “weak link” of a smartphone.

Traditionally for Japan there is protection against water and dust according to the IP67 class. Separately, it is emphasized that the smartphone can be wiped with alcohol.

Passed as many as 18 tests of the American standard MIL-STD-810H. Temperature tests, low pressure, vibration, dust, water, fog, rain, etc.

Other. There is an NFC module and a fingerprint scanner (on the side, apparently). Dual-band Wi-Fi and Type-C. 5G, of course. Of the LTE bands we need, as usual, Band 20 is missing.

On sale from June 2022. Price information is nowhere to be seen.
