Meizu presents Android smartphone without ports and openings




Chinese smartphone maker Meizu presented the Zero, a smartphone without ports and openings. Loading is wireless, while the phone only has an e-sim to connect to mobile networks.

The Zero has a ceramic housing, reports Meizu . Charging is done with a wireless charger that reaches up to 18W, similar to the most wired fast chargers. Sound does not come from a speaker grill, but the whole screen vibrates to produce sounds, as the Xiaomi Mi Mix from 2016 did before.

Meizu replaces the Power and Volume buttons for touch-sensitive parts on the side with haptic feedback, as the HTC U12 + did last year. Because of this combination of techniques there is no opening for normal things like speakers, SIM card slot and USB port. Of course there are cameras on the phone and he will also have microphones on board.

Those cameras are the Sony IMX380 and IMX350 at the back, a combination of twenty and twelve-megapixel sensors. The fingerprint scanner is behind the screen, as previously seen on the OnePlus 6T and Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The soc is the Snapdragon 845 from Qualcomm, a soc that was in high-end smartphones last year. Other details such as memory, storage and price are not yet known.

Competitor Vivo, sister company of Oppo and OnePlus, will most likely present a smartphone without gates or openings on Thursday. It is unknown whether other manufacturers will follow.
