Chinese manufacturer, Meizu, has not really been consistent in recent times due to multiple issues with its smartphone business. After the release of the Meizu 16 series back in 2018, the company is now set to unveil the Meizu 17. There is already an official announcement that the Meizu 17 is coming. However, we now have a real image, price information, and specs of this device.
Meizu 17 real image
There is currently a real image of the Meizu 17 (allegedly) circulating on the Internet. Meizu loves its white colour so its no surprise that this device has a white appearance. On the rear, we can see that this smartphone comes with four sensor slots. The four slots are horizontal and one of the camera sensors uses the ring flash design. This is quite different from earlier information which claims that Meizu is set to dump the ring flash design. We have the Meizu logo and other information at the bottom of this device. There is no rear fingerprint sensor thus it should use an on-screen or a side fingerprint sensor.
