Meizu has announced that its upcoming Meizu 15 smartphone will open for reservations on April 18 in China. The reservation will open simultaneously at 0.00 (UTC+8) on Meizu’s official online store, Meizu flagship store on Lynx, as well as its official flagship stores on Jingdong, Suning, and Gome. Recall that Meizu had hinted that the device would be officially launched on April 22.
The Meizu 15 isn’t a flagship model as it falls into the midrange category, going by the specs it packs. However, the device comes with a unique and spectacular design totally different from those of previous Meizu models. No, the Meizu 15 doesn’t attempt to keep up with the growing notch-y display trend. Instead, the device is bezel-less on the side while it has a minimal amount of bezels at the top and bottom. The device also features the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio and a circular home button that looks like the Apple iPhone home button. It is likely that the redesigned home button still retains the features of Meizu’s mBack button.
The sleek design of the Meizu 15 continues at the rear where the device packs a metal body with a brushed metal design. There is also a dual camera setup at the back arranged in a vertical direction. Meizu’s iconic ring flash is placed just under the rear cameras. According to previous leaks, Meizu 15 will come with a 5.46-inch AMOLED screen with a Full HD (1920 x 1080p) resolution. Under the hood, there will be an octa-core Snapdragon 660 SoC paired with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM depending on the configuration which you choose to buy. We don’t have any idea of the likely price tag but what we know is that the Meizu smartphone will go on sale on April 29.
