Latest Sharp Aquos phones feature slow motion playback effect

Sharp isn't making a very grand announcement about the special feature but the latest smartphones from the company can play videos at rates of up to 2,100 frames per second (fps) for a slow motion effect. While other brands are adding 4K video capability, Sharp is adding slow video playback as a unique feature of newest flagship phones running Android. The latest models--Sharp Aquos Series, Aquos Xx, and the Aquos Zeta--all boast of cameras that can shoot at 210 fps in 854 x 480 pixel resolution in FWVGA mode or 120 fps in Full HD recording mode.
