Chinese manufacturer, Meizu, will release its latest flagship smartphone, Meizu 17, sometime this month. We have seen so many renders and “real images” of this device with conflicting designs. However, this will be Meizu’s first 5G phone and the company also improves the charging capacity. Recall that the Meizu 16s Pro comes with a 24W mCharge capacity. However, Meizu 17 will arrive with a 30W charger according to the 3C database. This is quite important for the smartphone because 5G requires some upgrade to battery capacity. On the 3C database, Meizu 17 comes with model number M081Q and the listing shows that this device supports 5G. As for the charger, it comes with model number UP1030 and also supports a maximum charging rate of 30W.
There are speculations that we will have two smartphones – Meizu 17 and Meizu 17 Pro. It could also be that the multiple designs so far point to these devices. Internally, Meizu 17’s codename is M2081 while the Pro model is M2091.
According to recent information, the Meizu 17 will use a 6.5-inch 90Hz OLED curved screen. The display uses a punch-hole that houses the selfie camera. This device will come with a 64MP main camera coupled with a 20MP wide-angle camera and a 12MP telephoto lens. The main camera is a Sony IMX686 sensor. Under the hood, we have a Snapdragon 865 processor + LPDDR5 + UFS 3.0 solution. Of course, this device will support 5G dual SA / NSA network. There are also reports that this smartphone will support Wi-Fi 6, horizontal linear motors, dual stereo speakers, and NFC. On the battery end, we have a 4500 mAh that supports a 30W wired fast charge.
Huang Zhang, founder of Meizu Technology, said that Meizu 17 will also have new innovations in terms of materials, images, and experience. The 17 series will definitely be a good-looking and easy-to-use product.
As for its price, speculations have it that the 8GB + 128GB version will sell for 3999 yuan. However, the 8GB + 256GB and 12GB + 256GB versions will sell for 4299 yuan ($606) and 4699 yuan ($663) respectively. According to the company, this smartphone will be officially released in April 2020
