There are notch-less phones and then there are hole-less phones which do make a whole lot of difference. Well, Meizu has launched one of these kinds and the name is also very interesting. The Meizu Zero smartphone comes as the company’s top-end phone with a unique design. It has no holes for ports, speaker griller, and earpiece, in fact, it doesn’t have even the physical buttons and thus it becomes a unibody which is made of ceramic.
The Meizu Zero gets rid of the 3.5mm audio jack and neither has it the USB Type-C port. So, for charging purpose, the phone solely depends on the 18W wireless charging. No holes also mean you would need to depend on some external hardware for the sound output. Meizu states that users will use Bluetooth for wireless audio listening. Furthermore, the eSIM technology replaces the SIM card slot.
The Meizu Zero comes with a waterproof body with IP68 ratings and it uses mSound 2.0 screen sound technology that uses the phone’s screen as a speaker and the earpiece. Meizu claims that it has used better audio materials and internal layout for an improved sound quality that could also go louder compared to earlier technologies.
There are no buttons but the phone uses a haptic feedback system to offer virtual buttons on the side to turn the phone on and off and to adjust the volume.
Talking about the specifications, the device has a 5.9-inch OLED display. It is powered by Snapdragon 845 processor and comes with dual rear cameras – 20MP+12MP. Meizu hasn’t yet laid out more key details of the device, including the price and availability.
