Bezel-less Sharp Aquos S2 now official
Sharp has just unveiled a new bezel-less device in the form of the all-metal Aquos S2, sporting a 5.5-inch display crammed onto three narrow bezels and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip.
Sharp isn’t new to building smartphones with almost frameless displays as it had launched the Aquos Crystal back in 2014 in Japan and the US. There will be two variants available: one with a Snapdragon 630 chip with a 4GB/64GB RAM-storage combination, while a more powerful Snapdragon 660 will carry 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage on its arsenal. It also has a very narrow fingerprint scanner, measuring only at 3.6mm thick.
