Meizu has unveiled in China the world’s firs smartphone without any ports and buttons.
According to Meizu, the Zero has “no buttons, no speakers holes, no SIM card slot, and no charging port.” It sports a one-piece ceramic unibody. The new portless design is the result of the company’s own Wireless Wins Cable technology which supports 18W wireless super fast charging, cloud storage, and wireless connectivity.
Other highlights include the mEngine 2.0 tech for virtual buttons in place of physical one on the device, mSound 2.0 screen sound technology, and support for eSIM technology.
The Meizu Zero comes with a 5.99-inch ultra-clear full-screen AMOLED display based on OLED display panel, but has a Galaxy S9 chin and top bezel instead of a notch. It comes with a layer of 2.5D curved glass.
The smartphone is powered by 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, however, the RAM/ROM configuration remains unknown at the time of writing.
On the camera front, the device is home to a dual-camera setup at the back, rated at 12MP ( Sony IMX380 sensor) and 20MP (Sony IMX350 sensor) with support for the AI smart engine for enhancing AI camera features.
The one at the front stands at 20MP.
The Meizu Zero runs Android 8.1 Oreo with the Flyme 7 adaptive UI on top.
Furthermore, the device comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor, facial recognition feature, and IP68 certification for dust and water resistance.
The Meizu Zero will be available in bright porcelain black and kiln white color options.
Meizu hasn’t announced a price or release date for the Zero, but with Mobile World Congress right around the corner, expect some information soon.
