Soon after the launch of the Meizu M6S, the rumor mill has been consistently leaking images of the upcoming Meizu E3. Several new images of what appears to be the real Meizu E3 have surfaced to reveal its design and features.
The frontside of the phone is mainly occupied by the display. Above the screen is the selfie camera, an earpiece and a sensor. The second snap shows that the depression present on the right edge of the Meizu E3 could be the side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The antenna bands are placed on the upper and lower edges of the back panel.
The third image does not seem to match with one of the leaked photos that had revealed the rear design of Meizu E3. The previously leaked photo had shown that the vertically arranged dual camera setup along with ring-LED flash is placed towards the center of the back panel. However, the new photo of the rear side of the E3 shows that the vertically stacked dual camera lenses are placed on the top-left corner like the iPhone X. If the new image is true, the other image showing the back panel could actually belong to Meizu 15.
The other set of leaked photos shows the Meizu E3 sitting placed inside a protective case. The bottom edge of the phone seems to feature an external speaker, a USB-C port, a microphone and a 3.5mm audio jack. The older Meizu E2 has a microUSB port on its bottom bezel.
The left side of the phone has the SIM card tray slot that may also house a microSD card. Below it is the buttons for volume up and down. The right edge of the phone features a fingerprint sensor and a power button.
Meizu E series that was introduced in 2016 are better specced phones than the Meizu M series. Hence, the Meizu E3 is likely to arrive with better specifications than the recently unveiled Meizu M6S. Rumors are rife that it may be driven by MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. Latest information suggests that the handset will be carrying a price tag of 2,000 Yuan (~$318). The leaked shots of the real Meizu E3 shows that it has a very sleek appeal and like the predecessor models, it could be also aimed towards young business people.
The Meizu E3 is expected to succeed the Meizu E2 in April last year. Hence, the probable reason why the rumor mill is now consistently releasing leaked photo of the E3 is that its launch could be drawing closer. It may launch in March or April this year.
