Chinese manufacturing giant, Meizu, is getting set to unveil its latest flagship smartphone, Meizu 17. Recently, the rear cover of this smartphone hit the web again. The back cover shows that Meizu 17 cameras are horizontal (we already know this). However, it seems to come with some sort of “explosion-proof shield”.
Previously, there were reports that the camera arrangement of Meizu 17 is similar to the Galaxy S10. Therefore, Meizu 17 may adopt this layout scheme. However, the exact number of sensors on the layout is still unknown. Nevertheless, looking at the camera horizontal layout, at least five or even six sensors can fit in. Furthermore, it appears that the central sensor still uses a ring flash solution.
