Sharp sends invites for the global launch of the bezel-less Aquos S2

Sharp has begun sending out invites for their upcoming launch event, which will star the company’s next device, the bezel-less Sharp Aquos S2. This is a very intriguing launch for Sharp since this will be the first mobile device they’ll be holding a global launch for, and it’s also their first smartphone launch to be held in China.

The invite tells us that the product launch event will take place in Beijing on August 8 and the name of the device being launched. There’s the silhouette of what appears to be the number 2 and a flipped 9, and some of Sharp’s previous devices in a low poly form. 

The Sharp Aquos S2 was also recently leaked. The device will feature a 5.5-inch 4K display with practically no bezels, as well as a dual rear camera system and an in-display fingerprint sensor which means that the scanner is placed beneath the display.

The Aquos S2 will feature either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 or a Snapdragon 630 processor, with possibly 4GB or 64GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. The leak also claims that the new device will be priced at 2699 Yuan ($401) and 3499 Yuan ($520), making them a bit on the pricey side, though that’s to be expected.

With all this, the Aquos S2 is shaping up to be a very interesting device, and we can’t wait to see what Sharp has in store for the launch event coming up.
