Once again a “small” producer could succeed where two giants like Apple and Samsung are failing. We’re talking about Sharp , whose smartphone production is usually reserved for the Japanese market, which could first display an in-screen fingerprint smartphone , which is integrated below the display.
We reported some time ago that the producer was working on a series of frameless displays, and today, via Weibo, a first render was leaked that shows a hypothetical Sharp Aquos S2 completely free of frames, with 4K display and with A clear indication of the presence of a fingerprint reader integrated into the display.
A couple of presumed real images show us a definitely different device, as long as it’s the same subject. We see a device with side and top frames reduced to the minimum but with a lower frame, which may indicate that Sharp has too many problems in integrating the fingerprint reader.
The two images show rather a smartphone that remembers very near Essential Phone, including the bizarre front camera solution, which stops the display in the notification area. On the back, always according to the render, we should find a double camera, upright, but moved completely to the left for the joy of users who love symmetrical design.
For the time being Sharp did not issue official comments for which images and render are to be evaluated with the benefit of the doubt.
