Meizu 15 Trio Unveiled in China: Meizu 15, Meizu 15 Plus and Meizu M15

by April 23, 2018

Chinese smartphone maker Meizu has introduced three new phones in the market to mark its 15th-year anniversary. The phones are dubbed as- Meizu 15, Meizu 15 Plus and Meizu M15 (basically Meizu 15 Lite). All three phones have been subjected to several leaks over the last few weeks and recently full specs were leaked online. Overall, the wait for the device seems to be worth as all three come with impressive specifications including OLED displays. Most of the smartphone makers are going with 18:9 notched displays, but Meizu has decided to stick to traditional 16:9 display without the notch.

The most powerful device of the three is the Meizu 15. It sports a 5.95” Super AMOLED panel with QHD resolution. There is no notch and Meizu has cut short the bezel to mere 1.175 mm which is the narrowest bezel in the world. The body of the device is made of stainless steel and aluminum composite material which has the feel of the stainless steel but is lightweight like aluminum. Under the hood, the device is powered by Snapdragon 660 chipset along with 6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB internal storage (depending on the variant) without the microSD card slot. The rear features a dual camera setup consisting of 12MP Sony IMX 380 primary camera and a 20MP Sony IMX 350 secondary camera. The camera setup also features smart scene recognition and 3x-lossless zoom. The front hosts a 20MP selfie sensor with 4-in-1 synthetic pixels, smart AI Beauty mode and portrait mode. The front also hosts an mTouch fingerprint sensor that can unlock the phone in just 0.08s. There’s also facial recognition powered by Sensetime. The device runs Android with the company’s new Flyme 7 user interface on top and is backed by a 3,000mAh battery which can be charged quickly via the USB-C port.

The Meizu 15 Plus base variant (6GB RAM + 64GB ROM) comes with a price tag of CNY 3,000 (approx. Rs. 31,600) and higher variant (6GB RAM + 128GB ROM) is priced at CNY 3,300 (approx. Rs. 34,800). The phone will be available in three colour options- Black, Gray, and Gold.
