This is the reaction I have on my face, right now:
Zhuhai-based Meizu, a Zhuhai based company recently announced Meizu Zero, a phone that doesn’t come with any opening or holes, so you have no buttons, speaker grilles, charging port or even a SIM card slot.
Well, this is a concept phone that was designed to get people thinking about the future.
The phone uses eSIM technology to replace the lack of a physical card slot, for audio, it uses mSound 2.0 screen sound technology that is capable of pumping sound through the display via vibrations—the same tech used by Xiaomi in the original Mi Mix.
It also comes with a touch capacitive panels that when pressed firmly will recreate the feeling of a button, these panels serve as power and volume control buttons. Also, since there is no charging port, the Meizu Zero utilizes the company’s self-developed 18W wireless fast charging technology and Bluetooth 5.0 for data transfers.
As far as specs are concerned, you have the company’s Flyme 7 UI, likely based on Android Oreo, build-wise, the Meizu Zero has a ceramic unibody construction with IP68 water and dust resistance.
It uses a 5.99-inch sized flexible OLED display with an In-display fingerprint sensor and a 2.5D glass layer on top, you also have a 20MP front-facing camera with facial recognition technology and a 12MP Sony IMX380 + 20MP Sony IMX350 dual-camera setup at the rear with Meizu’s One Mind AI Smart 2 engine.
Under the hood, Meizu’s latest smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor.
