Smartphone manufacturer Sharp has taken the wraps off its latest mid-range device Aquos S2. According to the announcement made by the company, the device will be available for purchase, starting 8Th August. The firm also released an official press release, revealing all the specifications that come packed in the smartphone. It seems like the Aquos S2 device equips decent specifications, given the price tag that it comes at.

Design of the smartphone

The company claims that they specifically emphasized most of the importance on the smartphone’s display this time. The Sharp Aquos S2 smartphone is the second such device from the side of the company that comes packed with a bezel-less display.

As per the information provided by the company through the press release, the Aquos S2 features 84.95 per cent screen-to-body ratio. On the specifications front, the Sharp Aquos S2 smartphone features a 5.5-inch display with a tri-bezel-less screen. Tri-bezel-less, as per what Sharp has to describe, is wherein the bottom region of the rear panel is the only portion which sports bezels. The sides and the top portion of the rear panel have a completely bezel-less look.

As can be recalled, an unnamed Sharp device had been spotted recently, carrying similar specifications in terms of display. Therefore, it is safe to assume that the prediction made at that time was next to accurate, given that the company has officially confirmed it as well. The bottom portion of the rear panel equips a home button along with a fingerprint scanner embedded right below it.
