Like we said earlier, the Meizu 17 series will be released on May 8th. This is also the possible launch date for the Meizu Super mCharge USB-C Power bank. Recall that the Meizu 17 series also comes with a new technology called Meizu mSmart 5G. This is a power-saving technology that enables the 5G phone to save over 60% power. The company has shown that Meizu 17’s battery lasts for is 11.77 hours (with active 5G network). Furthermore, Meizu 17 can identify and connect to the 5G network faster.
The Meizu 17 / Meizu 17 Pro will be the company’s first 5G mobile phones. According to previous information, this phone should use a 6.5-inch 90Hz AMOLED screen with a Snapdragon 865 processor. It also supports LPDDR5, UFS 3.0, 4500 mAh battery, an on-screen fingerprint sensor as well as a horizontal linear motor.
It’s Snapdragon 865 SoC is Qualcomm’s main 5G high-end chip for this year. It uses the 7nm manufacturing process as well as the new Kryo 585 architecture. This chip also comes with a Spectra 480 ISP, Hexagon 698 processor, and a sensing hub. The CPU can run up to 2.84GHz. In terms of graphics processing, the Snapdragon 865 integrates the Adreno 650. This graphic chip improves the overall performance by 25% relative to the previous generation.
In terms of design, it uses a single punch-hole screen design. It has a relatively high front screen ration and the ultra-thin bezels give it a strong visual impact. It is worth mentioning that this smartphone also retains the white panel design. In this regard, Meizu said, “Meizu 17 may be the only 5G flagship phone with a white panel that you will find this year…”
