Moreover, Sharp Aquos Zero has stereo speakers and supports Dolby Atmos. The 3.5 mm jack is skipped in favour of a Type-C adapter.

By distributing heat sources with two charging ICs to suppress heat generation during charging, you can enjoy contents such as games and videos as much as you want while charging. Sharp Aquos Zero is equipped with a 22.6MP main camera, an 8MP selfie shooter and a 3130 mAh battery. The model runs on Android 9.0 Pie.
