We probably have half a dozen of 120Hz display smartphones and Sharp has already unveiled the Aquos Zero 2, the world’s first phone with 240Hz display refresh rate. It’s announced in partnership with a Sharp-sponsored eSports team.
Sharp wants to take its name when it comes to the highest refresh rate of mobile phones. The Japanese smartphone seller unveiled this mobile phone in September 2019 but that was available for sale in Japan only now it makes to stores in Taiwan.
The Sharp Aquos Zero 2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset although Snapdragon 865 is the latest one. It’s coupled with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of inbuilt storage. There is a stunning 6.4-inch display that gets an in-display fingerprint scanner on top of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection.
With that configuration, we can easily understand that it’s a high-end gaming phone running on the Android 9.0 Pie version.
In terms of camera, this latest Sharp Android phone comes with a 12 MP main shooter with f/1.7 aperture with a 20 mega pixel f/2.4 ultrawide camera. There is an 8 megapixel camera with f/2.4 aperture on the front for selfies and video calling.
Sadly it has got a 3130 mAh battery which actually is very low considering the gaming fan enthusiasts and further, the high display refresh rate too drains the battery a lot.
Sharp Aquos Zero 2 in Taiwan is priced at TWD 21,990 which is around 730 USD. Still OnePlus, Samsung, Xiaomi, or any other Chinese smartphone makers haven’t come close to 240Hz phone. When will they come up with one, it’s unknown yet.
