Meizu 15, Meizu 15 Pro and Meizu 15 Lite are unveiled with nary a notch in sight
On back of the Meizu 15 Pro is a dual camera setup (12MP + 20MP) with OIS and EIS. The main camera has an aperture of f/1.8, and the secondary sensor has a telephoto lens. In front, there is a 20MP camera to handle selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3500mAh battery, and Meizu's Flyme 7 Android skin is pre-installed. This model will be priced starting at 2999 Chinese Yuan, which is the equivalent of $475. By the way, this model has the thinnest bezels in the industry right now, measuring 1.175 mm, and offers plenty of AI capabilities. Available in Black and Gold, the Meizu 15 Pro has a zippy fingerprint scanner and comes bundled with a 24W charger for mCharge 4.0. An image of this phone can be seen in the photo at the top of this story.
The Meizu 15 carries a smaller 5.46-inch OLED panel with an 1080p resolution. Powering this model is the Snapdragon 660 mobile platform, which carries an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 512 GPU. There is 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of native storage available. The cameras on the phone match what you'll find on the 15 Plus with one exception; there is no EIS, only OIS. Flyme 7 is pre-installed. The device is available in White, Black, Blue, and Gold with a price that starts at 2500 Chinese Yuan, equivalent to $397 USD. A 24W mCharge charger is included in the box.
The Meizu 15 and Meizu 15 Pro will launch on April 29th in China and will be offered in select global markets like the UAE, Singapore, Hong Kong, Ukraine and Spain. That means we do not expect them to be released in the states.
The Meizu 15 Lite was announced separately from the other two models, and will not be available in China. This phone also has a 5.46-inch screen, but it is an LCD display. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 626 chipset, which comes with an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 506 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. The 12MP camera on back has an aperture of f/1.9, and like the other handsets in the series, there is a 20MP selfie shooter. A 3000mAh battery is inside, and an 18W mCharge compatible charger is included with the purchase of the phone.
Meizu, it should be noted, is going against the trend. None of the three phones unveiled today has a notch.
