Key features

  • The 120Hz*1 display reduces afterimages for a smooth display. Response time has been cut in half*2,*3 for easily readable text even while scrolling.
  • The energy saving switches partially reduce operations*4 to make the battery last longer. Even if you forget to charge your phone before you go to bed, a battery at 20% can last through the day*5.
  • The large, roughly 5.3 inches screen houses an S-PureLED, which has high color reproducibility. It depicts the smallest details in vivid color utilizing super resolution technologies.
  • The high-definition sensor provides high resolution zoom. Blurring of images is reduced with super-resolution technology. In addition, its newly-developed optical image stabilization technology moves the lens, allowing clear photos and videos to be captured.
  • Features "Emopa," the artificial intelligence (AI) that resides in AQUOS. Emopa pays attention to your steps every day and your weight to give you tips that come in handy for maintenance of health and dieting.
The "Hz" of an LCD represents the refresh rate per second. 120Hz LCDs are refreshed 120 times every second.
Compared to 60Hz.
Depending on the application, there are times when this effect cannot be obtained.
Reduces/Limits the brightness of the screen, the time the backlight stays on, the smoothness of display, CPU operations, automatic synching, Wi-Fi, location information, and Hikari emotion.
These results are based on tests in which the user's actual use of various functions such as when the display is on, sending and receiving emails, using applications, etc. is assumed (Sharp research). The battery life depends greatly on the use of games, browsers, and other applications in addition to voice calls, email, and other network usage.
