With less than 24 hours before the launch of the Meizu E3, official renders of the phone have surfaced online. The renders show off the phone in two colors – Obsidian Black and Dark Blue, but it is the latter that blows us away.
Meizu has not been one to shy away from flashy colors and the Blue Meizu E3 reaffirms that tradition. This is not Meizu’s first blue phone but what has gotten our attention is the red power button.
Most manufacturers choose to keep things simple by keeping the colors of the buttons in a similar shade as the color of the phone. However, OnePlus proved that changing the colors of the buttons can help make a phone even look much better.
The OnePlus 5 JCC Limited Edition with its blue power button, red volume rocker, and yellow alert slider is an example. So also is the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition which has a red alert slider.
The red power button stands out on the Meizu E3 just the way the red record button stands out on the old cassette players of old. Just a few millimeters below is a groove which houses the fingerprint scanner. There are also visible antenna lines in a slightly diffferent shade of blue. Thankfully, the front of the phone is black.
The Obsidian Black version looks good too but doesn’t stand out like the dark blue variant. There will also be a Champagne Gold variant available.
The Meizu E3 will launch with a 5.99” FHD+ display, up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It will be powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core processor and a 3300mAh battery.
On its rear sits a 12MP+20MP dual camera combo and there is an 8MP camera in front for selfies. The Meizu E3 is said to offer superior photography and gaming performance but we’ll have to wait till tomorrow to confirm that.
