Chinese smartphone maker Meizu has unveiled a smartphone that could be referred to as the first true unibody design smartphone ever released. The phone is named as Meizu ‘Zero’ and features a 5.99 inch infinity display.
The smartphone has no ports, not even the charging port is present. Smartphone makers right now are removing the headphone jack but this time Meizu decided to go completely holeless in the design. The phone features a ceramic body with IP68 water resistance – which expected since its having absolutely no openings on its chassis.
The huge 5.9 inch display also acts as a speaker with the proprietary mEngine 2.0 linear motor technology which vibrates the display to transmit audio. The phone will feature on-screen navigation keys with pressure sensitive technology.
The only hole in this device is used as a microphone + reset button – if something goes wrong. The phone uses haptic feedback to imitate the feel of button presses. It has an in-display fingerprint scanner. A piezo electric motor embedded onscreen helps with this task – like we’ve seen in Xiaomi Mi Mix devices & Sharp Aquos Crystal
Powering up this beast will be Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with no information provided about the RAM specs. Charging is handled by 18W Wireless Charger which is supplied with the phone. It also uses eSIM technology which is yet to be implemented in most parts of the world. Bluetooth 5.0 & NFC is present.
The front camera is a 20MP Sony IMX350 while a 12MP IMX350 + 20MP IMX380 (depth info) shooter is situated on the rear side.
According to sources, Vivo APEX was going to be the first smartphone which did away with the buttons but Meizu just pushed themselves a little more & this is what we have!
