The newly launched Sharp Aquos R3 has a unique and distinctive design which is mainly because of the dual notch in the display. It features a notch above the display which houses the 16 MP selfie camera. While the so-called second notch below the display is a way to maximise the screen to body ratio while retaining a fingerprint scanner on the front of the device. The smartphone sports a 6.2 inch Pro IGZO display that has a Quad HD+ resolution of 3120 x 1440 px. As previously mentioned, the display panel has a refresh rate of 120 Hz which provides for an enriched media consumption experience. Sharp Aquos R3
