Meizu VP: forget about bezel-less smartphones this year


Bad news if you’re a Meizu fan and a bezel-less display smartphone fan at the same time I guess. Meizu’s VP, Li Nan has stated that the company will not launch a full-screen phone this year, but perhaps they will have something “awesome” to show in 2018.

According to Li Nan, bezel less (and tri-bezel less) smartphones are the current trend nowadays but Meizu designers have some second thoughts regarding their overall usability, their design in general and the issues rising from their fingerprint sensor location.

Li Nan’s statement comes as a surprise to most Meizu fans, because recently the chairman of the company, Jack Wong, hinted that they would be celebrating their 15 years anniversary next year by releasing a smartphone with cutting-edge design. 

Perhaps that’s the reason Meizu plans to lay low this year and avoid launching a tri-bezel less smartphone. Let’s hope that next year the Chinese company will come up with something truly amazing hopefully.

    Unfortunately meizu phones are a non starter if you’re looking for SD card storage, which is a shame

    Seems that Meizu is going more and more further is matters of design innovations. Is getting demoted to extra really faster than expecting.

    How is Meizu compared to Xiaomi in terms of:
    * ROM quality
    * Company’s commitment to continues updates of their ROM
    * Hardward built.

    Been always interested to try Meizu phone as I like their simple design but been staying with Xiaomi so far.

      I have used several phones from both Xiaomi and Meizu. When it comes rom quality and updates Xiaomi is clearly better. However, I find that Meizu has the better build quality.

    Hi
    as a Scottish Meizu M1 note user I was disappointed by the statement. I wa looking forward to upgrade my phone in the next few months and was hoping that Meizu would update their style, similar to the cutting edge Samsung. I have enjoyed using the Meizu, although I found the lack of storage frustrating at times, it was always a reliable phone and very practical. I hope they can come up with some new designs soon.
