Curved display Meizu spied


meizu curved display leaked

Curved displays are set to be all the rage this year with Huawei, Xiaomi and now Meizu all rumoured to be building phones with the Samsung panels.

This year Vivo released the Vivo Xplay 5 with curved display, marking themselves as the first Chinese phone maker to use the Samsung panels, but soon they will be joined by others. Apparently Huawei and Xiaomi are planning new devices (Mi Note 2 perhaps) with Samsung sourced screens.

Before those two mobile giants get stuck in though, Meizu might be their first. Purported leaked photos show what looks like a mystery Meizu device, with curved panel. The images are suitably grainy to make them difficult to believe or not, but what we can see from the images are Meizu’s Flyme OS and a physical home button.

Meizu using Samsung curved panels would kind of make sense as the two brands have worked together in the past with Exynos chipset’s showing up in Meizu phones.

Meizu have already released 3 phones this year, and have 3-4 more phones in the pipeline, its just a question of which one(s) might use curved panels, and if Flyme will take advantage of the new screen surface.

    Hi Andy, is there possibility that you get hands on Zuk Z2 pro soon? There is no news about it or any relevant videos reviewing it on YT.

      It hasn’t been released yet. It was only launched a few weeks ago, the launch and the release are usually different days for Chinese phones. Often times they are months apart from one another.

    wow, it will be meizu mx6 igeekphone?

    I’m looking forward to the Meizu MX6 but I won’t buy it if it has a curved display – too inconvenient to hold without accidentally launching apps. I do that sometimes even with a standard display. Hopefully, they will put this display on a larger version of the Pro 6.

    I am gonna say this particular phone is fake but Meizu could in fact be launching a curved display phone. I would actually be shocked if they don’t given their long history with Samsung.

    There’s no curve. It’s a geenish stripe on a flat screen.. Fake
