Earlier today, Meizu took off the wraps on their new Meizu X phone. The device features a new design that comes as a welcome relief to those who have complained about the old and boring ones of their other phones.
One of the major changes you notice about the design of the Meizu X is the position of the rear camera. Meizu has always been fond of placing their rear cameras in the middle of the phone with the LED flash underneath it. The Meizu X is the first phone to deviate from that design in a long time. Its primary camera is situated in the top left corner with the LED flash flanking it on the right.
The Meizu X also ditches the polycarbonate/metal unibody design but instead has a separate metal frame that runs around it which gives it a premium look.
The back plate also appears to have a refractive design like when light passes through glass. And from the looks of it, it seems you can only see it when you are looking at the phone from a certain angle. Meizu has done a good job with the design and they deserve to be commended.
The Meizu X has a 5.5” FHD display, a Helio P20 chip, a 12MP Sony IMX386 camera, a fingerprint scanner, and a 3200mAh battery that supports fast charging. It is available in 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 4GB + 64GB variants for ¥1699(~$246) and ¥1999 (~$290) respecctively.
