Meizu recently set an official unveiling date for its upcoming Meizu 15 lineup. The new smartphone trio will make its debut on April 22 at the Wuzhen Internet International Conference Center in Wuzhen, China, at 7:30 P.M.
The list of new devices includes the regular Meizu 15, as well as its Meizu 15 Lite and Plus siblings. The Meizu 15 will be the company’s first release of 2018 and a special flagship, personally designed by founder, Jack Wong. The Meizu 15 promises a marriage of old and new, like a full-metal body, ultra-slim bezels, and a dual-rear camera with a ring flash, while still retaining a familiar physical home button.
The historical setting of Wuzhen – an ancient Chinese water town with charming canals dating back to the 1300s, seems only fitting for the overall theme of the event and the Meizu 15 design language – reliving and reshaping classic styles. The invitation itself even packs a three-piece rotating ring, inscribed with the text: “Relive the Time, Reshape the Classic”. So, we expect an extensive historical overview to accompany the introduction of the modernized classic design as well.
As far as current rumors go, the Meizu 15 Lite will feature a 5.46 IPS LCD, FullHD display, 3 GB, 4 GB or 6 GB RAM and 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB of storage, an unnamed octa-core chipset, 3,000mAh battery and a single 12MP, PDAF snapper on the back.
The regular Meizu 15 tops that with an AMOLED panel of the same size and resolution and a dual 12MP + 20 MP camera setup, also complete with PDAF and a quad-LED flash. Last, but definitely not least, the Meizu 15 Plus is expected to bring a 5.95-inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel AMOLED to the table, a more-powerful 2.5GHz octra-core chipset and a larger 3,430 mAh battery. All the while, likely, retaining the dual camera setup of the regular model.
