If there is one thing that Android users like, it's a comma. That's why fans from Android were so excited when almost every smartphone manufacturer on the planet decided to copy Apple's iPhone X design earlier this year.
Just in case it was not clear, we are sarcastic and hardcore Android fans have historically hated commas. Apple was not the first smartphone manufacturer to make a steam on the screen, but the first one used the notch design seen on the iPhone Ks. And of course, it's a design that every Android phone company has decided to copy, for obvious reasons – if Apple does something, and they have to do it. The worst part is that they copied the design for no practical reason. Apple needs just such a big comma because of all the components of the TrueDepth camera system. Android phones do not have complex 3D facial scanning features, so they all could use a much better and smaller design than the OnePlus 6T. But, hey, then they would not copy Apple!
Of course, some companies are not satisfied just by copying Apple, and on Thursday Sharp decided to turn things into a cutout. Unfortunately, he was intending.
Here's the worst smartphone in the history of smartphones. That's right, people … it's finally here!
Sharp presented its upcoming Sharp Akuos R2 compact smartphone on Thursday morning, a monstrosity that could haunt your dreams for the rest of your life. There are not only one, but two commas … and they are different shapes! The notch at the top is a selfie camera, and this is the shape of a teardrop like the one on Essential PH-1. Then, at the bottom there is a nephew for the home button, of all things, and the shape is like Apple's notch with iPhone X, iPhone KSS and iPhone KSR. When combined, they create a design that is completely disgusting.
As for specifications, the Akuos R2 compact has a 5.2-inch 2280 x 1080 IGZO LCD, Snapdragon 845 chipset, 4 GB of RAM, a 22.6 megapixel camera, a 2500 mAh battery, and a Sharp version of Android 9.0 Pie. Fortunately, there is a little good news in this story. It is expected that the Sharp Akuos R2 compact will be announced sometime next year, but it will never reach the US coast.
You will find a video that is embedded below, so you can truly enjoy the full shine of the R2 compact disc.
