Finally one camera sensor for all photography. I am tired of those ugly multiple camera sensors on the back of a smartphones.
I wonder why this doesn't get tested by DXOmark
This phone is cool but awkward
The last generation was already great. It only required OIS and better HDR. Hopefully Sharp has improved their HDR.
The 47MP in a 1inch sensor should help with zoom without too much loss.in detail, during daytime. And Quad Bayer on that should be great too.
19mm fov eq lens is horrible.. Too wide
this good for UW camera replacement for sure, but not main camera. Main cam should be ~28mm or even more.
Like ZTE Z40Pro Nubia - despite smaller sensor, those 35mm f1.6 lens amazes.
Octa PD means that this is a Quad Bayer sensor, so the effective resolution might be only 11.75 megapixels.
YUKI93, 09 May 2022Up from 20MP to 47MP? This should be exciting. However, I still think 19mm is too wide for the... moreYou can buy any Japanese phone from Ebay, kyoex(directly from Kyoto) or j-phone. I might buy a new Japanese product too this year(I would try a Fujitsu, well if they will actually release a flagship this year).
how come sharp is still in business. all seemed to having an end to phone , but now another sharp r7 aaaand so late foe a release in juullyyyy !!!! . what happened sharp just woke up ????!!!
Up from 20MP to 47MP? This should be exciting. However, I still think 19mm is too wide for the main camera. 30mm or 35mm is more realistic. That said, I'm still craving Sharp's flagship Aquos R phone. Hopefully, I can find a way to own one.
vrvly, 09 May 2022Lol, even super cheap 8mp ultra wide camera would be better than nothing.19mm focal length of main camera is borderline Ultrawide FOV
hinting, 09 May 20221 min summary https://youtu.be/yzJBj5Har7U Japanese launch https://youtu.be/CpV1DOfy2ZU ... moreLeitz phone(if it is coming this year too) will have the same specs, maybe it will have some software upgrade, and the price will be around 1500-1600 Dollars. I am not sure if it is worth the money over this one(if the hardware is the same).
Compak android phones pls com to da Philippines .. dont like iphone mini
Sharp Aquos 7 will cost 699$ (799€) in some Market it will be available to buy
"Sharp claims can collect up to 1.8 times more light than last year’s Aquos R6"
R7 is 1.8 times more *light-sensitive* because of its larger pixel size (when binned to 11.75MP), but it doesn't "collect" any more light compared to R6. Given R7's extremely wide field of view, I would say the reduction in effective resolution (down from 20.7MP) will definitely hurt a lot, unless Sharp has figured out a way to effectively create a good looking 47MP image through stacking and processing.
Thank god that Sharp is using a Dual Pixel sensor this time around though. Last year's contrast-based-AF-only sensor was abysmal at handling moving objects, and I'm glad that they are actually listening to customers' voices.
Yext, 09 May 2022I would totally buy the R7 if it was available in Europe, but it definitely won't be sadly.You can still buy any Japanese phones from Ebay, or from kyoex, or from the Russian site j-phone. So there are options.
It is a surprise seeing a brand new camera sensor for the R7, I did not expect such a thing to be honest. I was hoping for a telephoto camera though.
Anonymous, 09 May 2022This is how smartphone camera should be. Instead 4 or 5 lenses on the back that are pretty useless.Absolutely
