Sharp outs Aquos R6 in partnership with Leica, the handset with the largest camera yet

In Japan, Sharp today has released its newest flagship smartphone called the Aquos R6.
Sharp x Leica

The most powerful single camera on a smartphone yet?

AND, this is not your ordinary flagship smartphone. The Japanese firm collaborated with legendary camera maker Leica for the phone to have the largest camera sensor found on any smartphone yet.

This release also signals that earlier rumors regarding the expiration of Huawei's exclusive partnership with Leica are correct.

In particular, the device features a 20MP main camera with a 1-inch sensor size, f/1.9 aperture size, 19mm wide focal length, and a 7-element lens with Leica's "Summicron" branding for shots with less distortion.

This sensor is bigger than the 1/1.12-inch sensor found on the Xiaomi Mi 11 so it'll likely take more detailed images even in harsh lighting conditions.

It is paired with a ToF (time-of-flight) sensor for high-quality bokeh shots and maybe even AR/VR applications. On the camera hump, you will also see an LED flash.

In terms of overall specs, it is flagship-worthy as well. The handset features a 3D-curved 6.6-inch Pro IGZO OLED panel with a variable refresh rate of 1 to 240Hz, WUXGA+ 2730 x 1260 resolution punch-hole 12MP selfie shooter, and an In-Display fingerprint reader. The body is water and dust-resistant as well.

Inside, ti is powered by the 5nm Snapdragon 888 flagship chip paired with 12GB RAM, 128GB storage, and a 5,000mAh battery.

The device will be on sale in June in Japan via carriers NTT Docomo and Softbank.

Pricing isn't available at the moment. There's no info if it will reach other parts of the world as well.
