Sharp Unveils the Biggest Smartphone Camera in The World

Sharp's latest flagship phone, the Aquos R6, is notable not for its top-tier specifications (also impressive), but for its massive main camera. Just one camera is on the back, but the biggest camera sensor ever used on a Smartphone is a massive 1-inch sensor.

Sharp Unveils the Biggest Smartphone Camera in The World

With a 240 Hz refresh rate, the Sharp Aquos R6 is one of the few smartphones in the world. This is also used in competitive game displays used by professional gamers as a refresh rate.

It's at the top of a 6.67-inch 2K resolution OLED display, curved side, selfie camera, and slim bezels. The humble main camera, which is branded by Leica, is next to a dual-LED flash.

Internals and Storage

The Aquos R6 has nothing other than the snapdragon 888 SoC as a flagship smartphone. Set up memory up to 12GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS, meaning top-level performance in simple words. An SD card slot is also available to expand the storage.

Android boots 11 out of the box.


The massive camera sensor on the back is a 20MP unit, and a ToF sensor is also available. The only image stabilization you get is EIS, but according to Sharp, in low light conditions with improved dynamic range and lower noise, the camera performs remarkably well. It also should be in better shape than smaller mobile cameras.

Leica also offers an f/1,9 aperture and a focal length of 19 mm to maximize the front 7MP camera.

Battery and Pricing

Under the hood, there is a massive 5,000 mAh battery, but no fast charge word yet.

Once it comes for sale in June, we can hear more about the Sharp Aquos R6. This is also where the official price tag is to be used.
