Rumors say Meizu plans to launch a bezel-less smartphone in 2018
There are tons of rumors about а possible radical redesign of Apple's mobile phones for the eagerly expected anniversary model, speculated to be released later this year as the iPhone 8
. And these expectations lead to the emergence of many full-screen, bezel-less concepts like the one we designed for you in March
. But other companies could also be readying to launch similarly designed mobile devices. Recently published concept renders suggest that Meizu could be one of these companies with plans for bezel-less smartphone, but according to some of the latest rumors, the device will not arrive this year. Instead, a launch in 2018 is far more probable.
Recently, Meizu’s president Jack Wong hinted that plans for such a phone possibly exist, but the company has other priorities to deal with in 2017, as it is going through a process of restructuring. In 2018, however, Meizu will be celebrating its 15th anniversary, and industry sources expect the occasion to be marked with the release of a smartphone with cutting-edge
, bezel-less design, comparable to the standards which are to be set by giants like Apple or Samsung.
According to GizmoChina, Meizu’s bezel-less phone is also expected to use “a Qualcomm flagship chip” and to cost around 4000 Yuan (~ $580) or more. Еarlier rumors also suggest that Meizu’s "full-screen" device could have a better-quality display with a greater screen-to-body ratio as compared to Xiaomi’s Mi Mix.
It is further believed that Meizu's phone will have a ceramic body instead of a metal one. But as we already mentioned, all of this is just speculation based on rumors until Meizu confirms the claims officially.
