While some of the better known Android OEMs have jumped on the bezel-less bandwagon in 2017, Sharp has been toying with the idea for a couple of years now. It came out with the Aquos Crystal back in 2014. The handset had a bezel-less design but it was only made available to customers in Japan. Sharp today unveiled a new handset of a similar nature called the Aquos S2.
At first glance, you might mistake it for the Essential Phone because the Aquos S2 and the Essential Phone actually look quite similar. The similarities are only on the surface, though, as the Sharp handset has mid-range specifications.
