If the first version of the model was built on the basis of the flagship Sharp Aquos R6, then the second generation will be made on the Sharp Aquos R7 platform, designed in the style of Leica cameras, in particular the Leica M8 model.

The novelty is based on the mobile platform Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and is equipped with a 6.6-inch curved OLED display with a resolution of 2730×1260 pixels, supporting a refresh rate of up to 240 Hz.

The 19mm focal length lens delivers high image quality, while the 1.9 aperture ensures low-noise recordings even in low light. Digital zoom is supported by both the smartphone’s main and selfie cameras. It is important to have special software that implements shooting in the style of Leica cameras and imitates the use of one of the M-series “cult” lenses: Summilux 28, Summilux 35 and Noctilux 50. The flagship has only one main camera Camera with a 47.2-inch sensor megapixels, front camera sensor resolution – 12.6 megapixels.
