Apart from the four phones (six if we include the new color variant of the Meizu 16th and Meizu 16th Plus), Meizu also announced two new earphones – the Meizu EP52 Lite and the Meizu Live 15th-anniversary edition; and a power bank – the Meizu Mobile Power Bank 3.
Meizu EP52 Lite
From the name, you can tell that this is a toned-down version of Meizu’s EP52 sports Bluetooth earphones released last year. The EP52 Lite drops the sporty appearance and some of the features of its sibling.
The selling point of the EP52 Lite is its weight. The earbuds weigh just 2.3 grams! The EP52 Lite is IPX5 waterproof and has Bluetooth 4.2, an upgrade when compared to the EP52 which has Bluetooth 4.1. However, the Lite doesn’t have aptX audio.
There is an inline remote with volume controls and a play/pause button. The EP52 Lite has a 100mAh battery that is said to last up to 8 hours on a single charge and up to 200 hours on standby. Charging takes 1.5 hours.
The EP52 Lite comes in three colors -Moon White, Cloud Gray, and Deep Blue and is priced at ¥129 (~$19). It is already available for purchase on the official Meizu store. Other online stores should have it soon but it may sell for a bit more.
Meizu Live 15th Anniversary Edition
This year is Meizu’s 15th anniversary. It launched the Meizu 15 series earlier this year to celebrate the event. Today it launched a 15th-anniversary edition of the Meizu Live Hi-Res wired earphones it announced at the beginning of the year.
The anniversary edition has a four-layer gunmetal (black) coating but maintains the same design as the original. It still comes with an IP67 waterproof casing and 7 pairs of earbuds. However, it sells for much higher than the original version ¥1599 (~$233) as against ¥1299 (~$190). It is available for purchase on Meizu’s online store. Do note that this is a limited edition model and only 1500 units are available
Meizu Mobile Power 3
Meizu also announced a new power bank – the Mobile Power 3. It has a battery capacity of 10,000mAh and a metallic body. The power bank supports two-way 18W fast-charging. This means devices which support 18W fast charging will charge faster and you can also charge the power bank faster using an 18W fast charger.
The Meizu Mobile Power 3 comes in black and white, has two output ports, and a MicroUSB input port. It also has four LEDs to indicate the battery level. Meizu says it has 12 different safety measures including high-voltage protection and a temperature protection.
The power bank is priced at ¥79 and is sold on Meizu’s online store. However, only the white version is available.
