The Meizu 15 Plus has been in the news for quite some time now. Well, rumour mills to put it aptly. The rumours have been streaming in droves, all centred around a premium flagship design as well as powerful specs lineup. We have seen a couple of renders said to be those of the device in the past but nothing is certain. Yet again, the renders of the expected Meizu flagship has made an appearance in the rumour mill, this time around with a different design style.
Apart from the renders, some photos purported to be real photos of the device were also spotted on Chinese social media platform Weibo. One standout feature we noted on the leaked photos is the presence of a circular physical home button that is all too reminiscent of Apple’s iPhones. The device also packs a selfie camera that stands in the middle of the top bezel looking like the mythical One-eyed giant.
The leaked photos also herald the presence of a full-screen design which we are careful not to call bezel-less as there are large chunks of bezels at the top and bottom edges of the display with just a great deal of the side bezels shaved off. However, the device is said to come with the 18:9 aspect ratio design. However, our verdict is that this may not be the final design of the Meizu 15 Plus as there is nothing spectacular about the design which looks like an iPhone clone. If we are to go by the experience of the Meizu Pro 7, then the design of the 15 Plus is still to be seen. Be ready for a surprise as the launch draws closer. Do note that there are rumours of a Meizu 15 and 15 Lite launching alongside the 15 Plus.
According to a recent Weibo leak by @MochaRQ, the Meizu 15 Plus will feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen and is expected to launch in April this year. The device is also expected to pack a Samsung Exynos 9810 chip or Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845. The device is also expected to pack a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and run Android 8.1 based Flyme OS. There should also be up to 6GB of RAM onboard with 64GB & 128GB storage options.
