Sharp is expanding its device lineup with two new phones: the Aquos R9 and Aquos Wish4, both initially exclusive to Japan with planned expansion into markets such as Taiwan, Indonesia, and Singapore later on.

Both phones feature minimalist designs developed by Miyake Design, with the Aquos R9 once again following a camera-first approach with its triple 50-megapixel sensors developed in collaboration with Leica.

There’s a 6.5-inch Pro IGZO OLED display with a 240Hz refresh rate and a brightness ratio of 1500 nits. Additionally, the device boasts stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos.

Unlike previous devices featuring flagship Qualcomm chips, the Aquos R9 settles for a mid-range Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3 processor and 12GB of RAM. The smartphone runs on Android 14 and packs a 5000mAh battery. Sharp has also added IP68 and MIL-STD-810H standards for water and dust resistance.

The Aquos R9 comes in white and green colors. Pricing details have not been disclosed yet.

Sharp has confirmed that the phone is set to launch in Japan starting from mid-July.

On another note, the Aquos Wish4 features a 6.6-inch HD+ IPS LCD display and is powered by a Dimensity 700 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
