Smartphones without frames 2.0: Sony Lavender and Sharp Aquos Crystal 2

Smartphones without frames 20 Sony Lavender and Sharp Aquos Crystal 2

Making smartphones without frames is a trend that is invading the market. Terminals such as the new LeTv , or the Oppo R7, R7 PLus and ZTE Nubia Z9 that we have already talked about  are good examples of this. But not all pointers terminals in this new trend because they are also appearing smartphones without frames (borderless) that fall in the middle range and even at the low end. As proof of this we are going to talk about two very recent terminals, so recent that one of them does not even have a definitive name and we bring it in the form of filtration: The Sony Lavender.

Sony Lavender, a tentative name for a terminal filtered through Twitter.

For the image that has leaked through Twitter, we see that it uses a generous front camera in the upper right next to an LED flash, camera that possibly inherits the 5 megapixels of its brother the Xperia C4, which is advertised as a ” smartphone for selfies “.

We can also observe the presence of a very thin and discreet double speaker system, which gives a very beautiful look to this future terminal.

Without doubt, a member of the group of smartphones without frames very interesting. We will inform you, when it is finally released to the market, about its real name and all its specifications.

Update: The latest leaks from the No Where Else website tell us that the front camera of the Sony Lavender could incorporate a 13 megapixel Exmor IMX214 sensor with led flash, which would make it the smartest smartphone for the most beastly we have ever known.

Gizlogic_sharp-aquos-2 Sharp has just introduced the second generation of its Crystal series, Sharp Aquos Crystal 2 , which stands out not only for lacking side frames, but also includes a single frame at the bottom in which we find the front camera, the speaker and sensors. The included screen is a 5.2-inch S-PureLED panel with HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels , while moving the set takes care of an old-fashioned Snapdragon 400 , which is accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, all under Android 5.0 Lollipop.

It has support for mobile wallet, while the photographic section is solved with a rear camera of 8 megapixels and a front camera of 2.1 MP.

sharp-aquos-2-backAs we see, within the group of smartphones without frames, are very modest specifications that fit within the low range. It is surprising to use the Snapdragon 400, which at this point has been replaced by its evolution 4G, the Snapdragon 410, in most terminals of this range; especially since the terminal then includes support for 4G networks, which will have forced to use a specific chip for this task.

The 2 gigabytes of RAM included will improve the fluidity and multitasking of the smartphone, something that is always appreciated, although the battery could be a problem in the absence of more specific data.

Undoubtedly, what strikes the Sharp Aquos Crystal 2 is the absence of the upper frame, which will force to turn the terminal when we want to do a selfie, but not when we want to speak, since, although it lacks a speaker in its top, this has been replaced by a technology that translates the sound through the bones, something certainly quite curious and innovative.
