The successor of the popular smartphone is coming

Sharp has presented the world to the successor of the Aquos Crystal, which many consumers have admired for their unique design. The new model is even more modern and nicer, and thanks to the exceptionally thin frame surrounding the display, it feels like it occupies almost the entire front of the device.

Smartphone makers have so far failed to fully realize the concept of frameless design, as the concept affected front sensors and a camera that forced the frame to have a clear frame to accommodate.

Sharp, however, believed that the idea could be realized, and the example was the Aquos Crystal, where the 5-inch display occupied 78.5 percent of the front panel. The company’s accomplishments, however, were not enough and now its successor was presented. The Aquos Crystal 2 also has a thinner frame, which makes its 5.2-inch screen about 80 percent of its front panel surface.

The dimensions of the new smartphone are 136 x 71 x 11 mm and the weight is 154 grams. This is not a top-of-the-line model, so its 5.2-inch display has a resolution of just 720p, which for today’s standards is very small.

The processor is also not a speed demon, as it has a quad-core Snapdragon 400, which is supported by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of usable memory, which can be expanded with a microSD card. The manufacturer has also equipped the device with an 8 megapixel camera and a 2 megapixel front camera as well as a 2030 mAh battery and the internet connects to the LTE standard. The operating system is Android 5.0 Lollopop.

Israelis have developed a new smartphone battery

Israelis have developed a new smartphone battery

The battery developed by StoreDot’s Israeli startup engineers is a side effect of the Alzheimer’s study conducted by the University of Tel Aviv. Scientists have discovered that certain peptide molecules have the ability to store electrical charge. Batteries using this technology could load much faster than previously produced batteries, though their capacity would be slightly lower.

Unfortunately, StoreDot’s technology is not applicable to existing smartphones and tablets because it requires not only special chargers, but also electronic modules installed on the same devices.

Startup, however, is in talks with 15 manufacturers of these devices, hoping that this year they will be able to sign deals with one or two of them. Thanks to that, the first devices with a new battery should be ready for next year’s star.

The battery developed by the Israeli company actually has less capacity, but its full charge only takes us a minute. This is a very good solution as you can recharge your phone very fast and continue to use it.

Unfortunately, there is also the disadvantage of this solution, which in this case is the price. Technology is quite expensive and would require raising the price of a smartphone for as much as $ 50. This is very much and many consumers would not choose to buy such a device.
