Sharp isn't a well-known smartphone manufacturer in many markets but they have a prominent presence in Japan. Early last year they released the Sharp R5G with a quad-camera setup that featured a main 12MP camera, a 12MP telephoto, 48MP ultrawide, and a ToF sensor, and now, it is rumored that renders of the Sharp Aquos R6 they are gearing up to release on May 10 has been leaked.
The renders shared by the leaker, @nokishita_c on Twitter revealed that Sharp had teamed up with Leica to offer optimized camera performance as the Aquos R6's camera system is co-engineered with Leica.
The images also revealed the smartphone to have a deep curved-edge display with a centrally aligned punch-hole camera. The rear of the phone was seen to have a rather chunky camera module that housed just two cameras whose specifications are currently unknown.
While there is no information at present regarding the smartphone's total specifications, it is however expected that the Aquos R6 will be the successor to the Aquos R5G smartphone that was released last year.
The Aquos R5G has a 6.5-inch IGZO display that offers a Quad HD+ resolution of 1440 x 3168 pixels and supports Dolby Vision and U-NEXT HDR output. The device is powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset and has 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage along with a 3,730mAh battery.
Sharp is set to launch the Aquos R6 on May 10.
