Although the number of camera lenses incorporated into smartphones is increasing, the AQUOS R6 adopts the concept of a single-lens camera and is equipped with a large 1-inch sensor manufactured under the supervision of Leica Camera AG. In order to equip a small product such as a smartphone with a camera that has performance equivalent to a compact digital camera, it is necessary to satisfy various design conditions and limitations while coming close to the ideal exterior. The area around the camera adopts a structure that enables the texture of the machined aluminum to be seen at the back of the panel. A refined spin finish—which gives the impression at first glance that the camera is something to behold—has been applied around the lens. The top and bottom of the smartphone is designed with a large curve so as to easily fit into the user’s hand, and the front and rear panels use curved glass making the device easy to hold while also realizing performance. I hope that users can use this ultimate flagship device to keep memories of those important to them and moving experiences.
In terms of my private life, I am always surrounded by music. All my worries and tiredness melts away when I pluck the strings on my acoustic guitar and sing—I just love it. Regardless of what one pursues, whether it be design, music, or anything else, I think one must enjoy what one is doing.
