Chinese phone brand Meizu made headlines yesterday when it unveiled their newest smartphone, the Meizu Zero Holeless phone, at an event in China. While a whole lot about the device were released yesterday, the company never announced the pricing and availability, that has now changed, as it has announced today that it will be running a crowdfunding campaign for the Meizu Zero from Jan. 30 in China.
Although Headphone jacks are gradually been phased out, home and back buttons gradually been replaced by software button, the Meizu Zero is the first major phone from an OEMs to have entirely ditched all ports, buttons, or holes that mar the exterior of the device.
The Meizu Zero is an interesting device. it is completely devoid of “ buttons, speaker holes, SIM card slot, and even charging port” Aside from the slightly protruding camera bump and maybe the microphone holes on the bottom, the device qualifies for a spottles piece of slab.
The device is airtight, meaning it has an IP68 rating against water and dust. It has a built-in eSIM technology and 128GB of internal storage in place of SIM slot, a pressure sensitive sides with haptic feedback in place of a volume rocker, while it gets a wireless charging functionality in place of the physical port on the bottom. Speaking of it wireless charging function, Meizu is assuring users of charging speeds of up to 18W with its own “Super mCharge Wireless” technology, which would far surpass the 7.5W spec Apple uses and the 9W speeds offered by Samsung.
Speaking of the specifics, the Meizu ZERO flaunts a 5.99-inch AMOLED display with full HD+ resolutions and mSound 2.0 in-screen technology that lets the screen to work as a speaker. It gets an in-screen fingerprint reader but sadly depends on last years SD 845 SoC.
