Aquos R phone charging base faces you through a call

Last year Sharp showed off its Corner R display concept on a phone with a minimal bottom bezel, and now, the company is introducing its newest phone, the Aquos R, which incorporates the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 835 processor.

The 835 is the same processor that’s in the Galaxy S8. But unlike the S8, the Aquos R still has prominent bezels. Sharp can make a phone without them, so why?

Some other specs:aquos_base

  • 5.3″ WQHD display
  • Android 7.1
  • 3,160mAH battery
  • 4GB RAM, 64GB storage
  • USB-C
  • 22.6mp rear-facing camera; 16mp front-facing camera

Sharp’s also announced a new built-in assistant called ‘Emopa’ that’s launching alongside a new rotating charging dock that can apparently follow the direction of a user’s voice and identify his or her face when receiving a call. It’ll then then turn to face him or her while the Aquos R is in the cradle.
