Sharp Aquos R7 gets SD 8 Gen 1 and improved 1” sensor, Aquos Wish2 tags along

Sharp announced its 2022 flagship with the Aquos 7 – a direct successor to last year’s Aquos R6 which brought a massive 1” camera sensor co-developed with Leica. This year’s model carries the same massive-sized sensor and gets the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset as well as a slightly altered design.

In addition, Sharp also announced a new midranger with the brand new Aquos Wish 2. That handset is powered by the Snapdragon 695 and boots Android 12 out the box. Both new devices will be exclusive to Japan.

Sharp Aquos R7 brings a 6.6-inch Pro IGZO OLED with FHD+ resolution and a 240Hz adaptive refresh rate. Sharp is also touting an impressive 2,000 nits peak brightness, 10bit color support and Dolby Vision. The front and the back are both protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. The panel also houses an under-display fingerprint reader and a 12.6MP selfie cam.

The more interesting bits are around the back where we have a new 47MP main camera with a massive 1” sized sensor that Sharp claims can collect up to 1.8 times more light than last year’s Aquos R6. The Sharp and Leica co-developed sensor brings a seven-element Leica Summicron lens, an F/1.9 aperture and a 19mm focal length. The only other camera sensor on the back is a 1.9MP portrait sensor.
