Sharp Aquos S2 Android smartphone with bezel-less display now available in China
Sharp Aquos S2
Japanese brand Sharp has been releasing bezel-less handsets since 2014, and now the new Aquos S2 is available in China as promised. The price of this Qualcomm Snapdragon 630-powered phone is around US$370.

Back in 2014, Sharp released the bezel-less Aquos Crystal way before the major brands in the industry started to take into account this design approach. Now, the Aquos Crystal 2 is already available and seems to look like a mix between Andy Rubin's Essential Phone and the Apple iPhone 8, both still not available on the market.

The Sharp Aquos S2 is a premium mid-range handset with a 5.5-inch full HD display that fits nicely in a 4.9-inch form factor. It uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, next to 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, a dual-camera setup on the back (12 MP + 8 MP), as well as a selfie shooter with an 8 MP sensor and f/2.0 aperture.

China is the first market to receive the Sharp Aquos S2 and, for now, we have no information about its arrival in other countries. Its price tag is around US$370. The larger, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660-powered Aquos S2 Plus is expected to launch at a later date for a price of around US$520.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
