The Meizu M6s is the company’s first phone with a tall, “all-screen” design, but it’s not exactly the best implementation of an 18:9 display. with quite a bit of bezel showing up on each side of the screen. But it’s a good first attempt, especially for a low-cost phone like the M6s, and if leaked Meizu 15 Plus renders are to be believed, the company’s next attempt at an 18:9 display could be far, far better.
Meizu 15 Plus could have minimal bezels
Gizmochina has published a couple of renders purporting to show the 15 Plus, and as you can see in the images, the front side of the phone has a crazy low amount of bezel. It’s not a uniform design as the top bezel is higher than the other sides, but that would be necessary to accommodate the front camera and necessary sensors unless Meizu wants to go for a notch like the iPhone X or put the front-facing camera at the bottom a la Xiaomi’s Mi Mix.
At the rear, there’s a dual camera setup, with the two sensors stacked vertically. There’s also another ring-like cutout below the cameras, which could either be laser autofocus, an LED flash, or even a fingerprint sensor (although a fingerprint sensor with such a small surface area wouldn’t make a lot of sense). There’s no recessed area below the power button, so if these renders are accurate, the 15 Plus may not feature a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. A Halo button on the front side, like the M6s, does seem likely, although it’s not shown in these renders.
Some specs are also detailed in the leak. The 15 Plus is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 845, with one variant featuring 6GB of RAM and the other sporting 8GB of RAM, with 128GB of storage on both. There are no other details as yet, but with the Meizu 15 and 15 Plus set to launch sometime next month to celebrate the company’s 15th anniversary, we should see more details make their way online in the coming weeks.
