Meizu Zero launches: No physical keys, no ports, no SIM slots
The Meizu Zero is the first smartphone in the world to have a unibody 3D design without a button and physical connection.
Because there is no charging port, Meizu Zero will charge the battery through Super mCharge 18W wireless charging technology (equivalent to 18W fast charging) and the device also has no screen notch.
Thanks to audio technology from mSound 2.0 screen and sound transmission sensor, Meizu replaced the voice and microphone speakers on Zero phones. The company said users can hold the phone upside down and still make calls.
This technology was first applied on the Xiaomi Mi Mix. However, due to technical limitations, the sound quality on this product was not good. Meizu said Zero has used the new improved version for loud and clear sound quality.
The Meizu Zero is equipped with an embedded optical fingerprint sensor under a 5.99-inch OLED display, the size and weight of the device have not been disclosed but the company says it is very thin and light.
Instead of using a physical SIM card, the Meizu Zero uses eSIM inside, the two left sides must have a linear mEngine engine replacing physical buttons such as volume and source. IP68-compliant phones can submerge in water for up to 2 hours 30 minutes.
The Meizu Zero supports Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, so users can use wireless headsets to listen to music.
The Meizu Zero uses Snapdragon 845 chip, the rear dual camera Sony IMX350 12 MP + Sony IMX350 20 MP, and the 20 MP selfie camera on the front, runs Android 9 Pie with Flyme 7 and One Mind AI Engine interface.
The Meizu Zero is black and white, but its date of releasing and the price has not been announced by the company yet.
