Meizu has actually gotten on the map considering that 2003 and for its 15-year wedding anniversary it announced 3 brand-new phones from its totally brand-new collection – Meizu 15, Meizu 15 Plus and also Meizu 15 Lite. We were at the launch and saw the whole show and even reached tinker with the tools.

All three phones come without today’s smartphone trends that all other producers seem to follow – a high 18:9 display or an intermediary in addition to the display screen for the selfie cam. Meizu decided to violate the circulation and also presented three devices that have some overlapping specifications however are put in various price segments to cover a bigger target.

The lite friend of the Meizu 15 might have a chipset that is aiming for effectiveness, as opposed to power, yet it is available in the exact same 5.46″ bundle.

Taking care of to remain in the game for 15 years is genuinely a success for Meizu and also we need to provide a hat pointer for that.

That’s where the intro of the a lot more standard display ratio occurs combined with above average electronic camera specifications.
