Xiaomi set the “full screen” pace and took it to very high levels that have seen other manufacturers follow the same trend, but as early as 2013, Sharp’s Aquos Crystal was so amazing that it caught the attention of many. Official sources reveal that Sharp have launched up to 28 full-screen devices so far and this will be yet another. CEO of Sharp Mobiles Luo Zhongsheng said that Sharp would have a full-screen design this year and it will be the introduction of their powerful mobile phones. “I bet you, by the end of December this year, you will all have to replace your phones,” said Zhongsheng.
Apart from this official pronouncement, nothing concrete has been said about Sharp’s new device. Nevertheless, wonderful renderings of Sharp’s new machine have been leaked though the authenticity of these leaks cannot be verified. From the images, the front of the device is covered by a “really full screen” power/lock and the camera design looks very similar to Essential. It features a dual camera setup with a sleek design and modern style. Behind the smartphone does not contain any fingerprint recognition module thus it will most likely use a screen fingerprint technology. This year’s iPhone 8 is also expected to use this technology. This device is designed with very thin bezels and rectangular display corners. The device’s volume up, power/lock buttons can be found on the right-hand side of the device’s body.
