by: - Last updated on: April 22nd, 2018

After being leaked extensively over the past week, China-based phone maker, Meizu has today introduced three new smartphones in China — the Meizu 15, M15, and 15 Plus. Surprisingly, none of these smartphones have a tall 18:9 screen. All of them, however, come with a haptic feedback system inspired by Apple’s 3D Touch technology called “mEngine”.

Let’s talk about the Meizu 15 Plus first. For starters, it has a traditional 5.96-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of Quad HD. In spite of the lack of the 18:9 aspect ratio, Meizu has managed to cut down the bezels to just 1.175mm — possibly the narrowest in the world right now. In addition to that, it’s powered by the processor from last year’s Galaxy S8 line — the Exynos 8895. There’s 6GB of RAM, Flyme v7.0 software, and 64 or 128GB of internal storage which is not expandable.

The camera arrangement houses a primary 12-megapixel sensor along with a secondary 20-megapixel telephoto lens. The former of them is optically stabilized and has an aperture of f/1.8. On the front, you’ll find a 20-megapixel snapper as well.

In addition to the fingerprint reader, there’s a face unlock feature as well and the phone also carries a pair of stereo speakers. Underneath, it runs on a 3,500mAh battery which can fast-charged through a USB Type-C port. It will be available in three color options — Black, Gray, and Gold. It’s priced at 2,999 Yuan for the 64GB variant and 3,299 Yuan for 128GB.

Next up, the Meizu 15. It features a smaller 5.46-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 1080p and draws power from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, 4GB RAM, 64 or 128GB of internal storage, and a 3000mAh battery. The optics setup is similar to that of the Meizu 15 Plus, however, here there’s no OIS here. It will be available in four color options — White, Black, Blue, and Gold. The Meizu 15 starts at 2,499 Yuan for 64GB and 2,799 Yuan for 128GB.

The Meizu M15 comes with the same 5.45-inch display with one key difference — it’s an LCD panel instead of OLED. Under the hood, it runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, 3,000mAh battery, and 64GB of internal storage. Living up to its Lite moniker, the phone lacks a dual-camera arrangement and only has a single 12-megapixel sensor on the back. There’s a 20-megapixel selfie camera as well. It will go on sale in China for 1,699 Yuan.
