Meizu is gearing up to celebrate its 17th anniversary with the release of a new smartphone named Meizu 17. It will be a 5G-capable smartphone that will be unveiled sometime in April. The exact launch date is unknown for now but we have started to see rumor mill reveal various important details about the phone.

Starting with the photo, it shows only a portion of the smartphone. It is from the right side where one can see rounded corners, a WiFi icon, a 5G icon, and a punch-hole for the front camera.

The choice of processor is Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 that is paired with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM. There is 128GB UFS 3.0 storage but there could be more options as well.
The whole package is reportedly powered by a 4,500mAh battery with 30W fast charging support. There will also be 30W wireless fast charging compatibility. This is what is known about Meizu 17 at the moment.
