Seems that companies are in a race to bring more and more cameras to its smartphones. Now having three or four cameras in a smartphone isn’t unusual, but usually these crazy camera setups are always focused in the rear, seems that the camera’s centric company is back in action with a triple-selfie camera smartphone.
Yesterday, Xiaomi announced that will be taking over the hardware part of Meitu, meaning that we should start to see more products with the Meitu branding. However, the camera specific software will still be a responsibility of Meitu’s original team. Today a new upcoming model from the brand has paid a visit to TENAA. This particular model was identified as Meitu MP1801 and boasts three 12MP+20MP+8MP selfie cameras, TENAA didn’t specify the specific characteristics of these sensors.
Judging by the images below, Meitu will be bringing the mother of all notches, surpassing the iPhone gang and even the Pixel 3 XL.
On the rear the smartphone counts with a dual camera sensor with 12MP+8MP, that is placed between two distant LED flashes. As you might expect, the design is a bit unusual, which is something expected from a Meitu smartphone. Following the specs, there is a 6.21-inch OLED screen with FHD+ resolution.
The processing power will be ensured by an unspecified Octa-Core chipset that is divided into two clusters with 2.6GHz for the BIG cores, and 1.7GHz for the little. There is a generous amount of 8GB of RAM. Internal storage availability will be split into two variants with 128GB and 256GB.
The handsets are powered by a 3,400mAh battery and runs Android 9.0 Pie straight out the box – Here we have something interesting, while some giants of the industry are shipping smartphones with Android Oreo, Meitu seems to have left the past behind, and will be bringing a smartphone with the latest flavor of Android, of course, we expect to see a new version of Meizu’s software running atop.
Well, with this triple-selfie camera smartphone seems that Meitu will keep its name made by camera-centric smartphones. Worth noting that this smartphone still is something from the company’s original formation, we’re yet to see the changes that the Xiaomi name will bring over the brand.
