Leak: Will the Meizu MX5 be the ‘most bezel-less’ phone?

meizu mx5

Meizu’s gearing up for their event scheduled 2nd June, and from what we’re hearing there’s going to be a lot of stuff launched there, apart from a phone (presumably the Meizu m2 note).

However, more seems to be going on at the Meizu camps than just that. For one, preparations for the Meizu MX5 and the MX5 Pro seem to be in full swing for now… a couple leaked pictures of which managed their way through to our desks.

What is interesting is the design (which is almost always the case with Meizu phones). In this case, the MX5 and the Pro version thereof are shown to have bezel-less designs. The Nubia Z9 that recently launched is another one of these bezel-less phones, but the MX5 and the MX5 Pro will give the Z9 some stiff competition if the leaks do turn out to be genuine.

There’ll most certainly be a fingerprint scanner on the MX5 Pro… it is going to be the main flagship after all. Since the launch of the MX4 Pro, fingerprint scanners have become more of a commonplace than ever before. Which is why, we might also get to see one on the MX5.

Another interesting question that springs in the mind: could Meizu launch these phones at the June 2 event? Time will tell…

      Congrats, you have just been awarded the “Most difficult phone to hold without touching the screen” award!
      Also since the earpiece is not where it should be, it has a very bad sound unless you use a handsfree set.

        “Congrats, you have just been awarded the “Most difficult phone to hold without touching the screen” award!”

        Why me? You mean Sharp?

        Well, it is hard to hold, definetely. That is why it is not very popular. I am just saying that this is most bezel-less phone. You can like it od dislike it, I don’t care.

              My nexus 6 and all previous phones all lay on my fingers while I use my thumbs to navigate my phone. And never accidentally touch screen.

              I don’t see how this changes with bezeless phones. Ive held the sharp phone for a few minutes before and no issues.

              The sharp device screen was the only winning quality.

        Actually the phone doesnt have an earpiece…instead it features a Direct Wave Receiver which essentially vibrates the entire front panel of the display..making the whole screen an earpiece..
