Sharp's Aquos Zero 2 gaming phone is now available for purchase outside of Japan. It comes with a 6.4-inch OLED panel that refreshes at a whopping 240Hz, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. It is currently up for sale in Taiwan for $730. We should know if the phone will be released internationally in the coming days.

High refresh rate screens don't mean a lot of smartphones, considering that not all games will be able to take advantage of the hardware. It hasn't stopped manufacturers from releasing smartphones that refresh faster than most gaming monitors, on paper at least. The Sharp Aquos Zero 2 (now we know where Sony got the idea) is one such device. It comes with a 240Hz screen and is now available for purchase outside of Japan.

The Sharp Aquos Zero 2 has been around for quite some time and is not a new device. It comes with a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel, Snapdragon 855 SoC, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a paltry 3,000mAh battery. It will be available for purchase in Taiwan for roughly $730. Whether or not it will be available in other regions remains to be seen.

Sharp has been a prominent player in the smartphone market for a long time. However, it is virtually unknown because it is laser-focused on the Japanese market. The company also has the dubious honor of being the first to come up with the notched screen, among other things. Looking at its hardware, the Sharp Aquos Zero 2 won't stand up against offerings from the likes of Nubia, Black Shark, and iQOO. Perhaps the 240Hz screen will give it the competitive edge it needs to take on its Chinese counterparts.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
