Teaser shows that the Meizu Blue Charm Metal will feature a magnesium-aluminum alloy build
The teaser shows an image of the periodic table with Mg and Al highlighted. Those two elements are Magnesium (atomic number 12, just in case it ever comes up at a party) and Aluminum (atomic number 13). In addition to knowing which materials are being used on the phone, we understand that Meizu will use a trio of layered material for the handset, with plastic used first. That will be followed by a layer of metal, with another coating of plastic on top. A fourth layer consisting of paint, is sprayed on afterward. If this is true, the magnesium-aluminum alloy will be found between two layers of plastic.
Images of the Blue Charm Metal were included with the post, and show off a variety of colors that will be offered. Those shades appear to be pink, blue, champagne, graphite and white. The specs that have been leaked reveal the handset will feature a 5.5-inch screen, with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Driving the unit will be an octa-core 2GHz CPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of internal memory. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is included, for those seeking additional storage. The camera combo front back to front, weighs in at 13MP and 5MP. Instead of Android, the device will employ the YunOS from Alibaba.
No word yet on pricing or availability, but don't fret. On Wednesday, all will be revealed. Besides the phone, we could see Meizu take the wrappings off of a new smartwatch that will pair with the Blue Charm Metal.
Thanks for the tip!
