Sharp announced its Aquos Xx flagship smartphone last month in Japan with hardware that’s at par with most high-end phones out there. However, the one element that sticks out like a golden thumb is the fact that the phone can capture ultra-super slow motion videos up to 2100 fps at a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels and up to 1200 fps at full HD resolution.
If you think that the above sounds unbelievable for a phone, then you are partially correct. The Aquos Xx doesn’t actually have the hardware to record videos at such a high fps. Its 13MP camera can actually shoot 210fps @ 854 x 480 pixels and 120fps @ 1080p videos but the phone also has a software that can increase the fps of those videos by ingeniously creating 10 almost carbon copies of every frame, resulting in the high fps count. The resulting video turns out great as is evidenced by this demo video from Sharp:
As I mentioned earlier, the rest of the Aquos Xx’s hardware is also up to spec. It has a 5.7-inch full HD ‘S-PureLED’ display and is powered by a quad+quad Snapdragon 810 SoC clocked at 2+1.5GHz and 3GB RAM. It offers 32GB of internal storage and supports microSD cards up to 128GB. Apart from its primary 13MP camera, the Aquos Xx also has a 2.1MP front camera. The Sharp smartphone runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop and all of its hardware is fueled by a 3,000mAh battery.
Like previous Aquos smartphones, the Xx also adopts an almost bezel-less design. Currently there’s no word if Sharp ever intends for the Aquos Xx to leave Japanese shores, let alone an India launch.
