Meizu releases Zero

by on24 January 2019

No headphones, charging ports or SIM slot

Phone maker Meizu has announced a new phone called "Zero," which doesn't have a headphone jack, or a charging port, or a physical SIM card slot, or any buttons, or a speaker grill.

The only elements that disturb the surface of its all-display, 7.8mm-thick ceramic unibody are its 12MP and 20MP rear cameras and two pinholes.

One is a microphone, while the other is for hard resets. To make up for the lack of ports, Meizu Zero will support Bluetooth 5.0 and a wireless USB connectivity that can transfer files as fast as its USB 3.0 standard legs can carry it.

Zero's 5.99-inch QHD OLED screen will act as some sort of a giant speaker and earpiece replacement. It does have a big enough bezel for a 20MP front camera, but its fingerprint reader is completely on-screen.

The device, which is powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor, relies on 18W wireless charging due to the lack of a charger port.

And it may not have the usual physical buttons, but it does have pressure-sensing ones with haptic feedback on its borders.

Meizu hasn’t yet revealed any pricing details for the Zero or an actual release date in any markets.
