Meizu will roll out the drums to celebrate 15 solid years in the electronics technology industry where it began with the manufacture of MP3 players. To mark its 15th year of existence, the tech giant is said to be planning the launch of an anniversary flagship phone which would have the design input of Meizu’s president Jeffery Wang. That model is said to be the M15 Plus (and the M15). Here’s what the Meizu M15 Plus looks like, as captured on leaked renders of the front and rear aspects of the device. The render images were shared by popular Weibo Chinese tipster @Ubuntu team who has got some level of credibility when it comes to leaks going by his antecedents. But then, we are not sure this is the final design the flagship would adopt.
The device comes with a curved edge design both at the front and back. There is no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor neither do we have the oblong-shaped mBack home button. The side fingerprint sensor used on the M6S wasn’t featured on the rendered design. Instead, there is a round-shaped home button similar to the iPhone’s button and which is believed to also house the fingerprint sensor. The device also packs a centrally placed selfie shooter. The position of the selfie shooter and the home button elicits doubts if the M15 Plus will pack a full screen 18:9 design. Well, except the renders do not depict the actual design.
At the rear, you’ll get a dual camera sensor arranged in the vertical direction while under the camera setup, is a unique round LED flash. Meizu has a reputation for innovative camera flash designs so this isn’t coming as a big surprise. The device also features its volume rockers at the left side of the display while the power button is located at the right side. The specifications of the M15 Plus is still shrouded in mystery. We don’t even know the processor it would pack. Whether Meizu will retain its patronage of MediaTek or would utilize its recent cooperation with Qualcomm to equip the flagship with a Snapdragon 845 chip. Still, the M15 Plus could utilize Samsung’s latest Exynos 9810 chip considering recent reports of Samsung selling its chipsets to other OEMs going forward. Besides, Meizu has always had a good alliance with Samsung.
