Word on the street is that Meizu is working on a new handset called the Meizu E3. It’s going to be the successor to the E2 that the company launched in April last year. A purported live image of the Meizu E3 has been leaked online today and it reveals that the handset might have a metal build as well as a dual camera system on the back.
The Meizu E2 is a mid-range smartphone that came out last year. It’s powered by a MediaTek Helio P20 processor with up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The handset also featured a 5.5-inch Full HD LCD display, a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera as well as a 3,400mAh battery.
Meizu E3 might jump on the bezel-less bandwagon
The purported image of the Meizu E3 that’s making the rounds online shows off what appears to be an all-metal unibody design. One can clearly make out what look like the antenna bands at the rear edges. We can also see a dual camera at the back with a ring LED flash.
The handset’s front can’t be seen in this leaked image so it’s not known right now what it looks like from the end that users will be looking at the most. However, if recent reports are believed, the Meizu E3 might jump on the bezel-less bandwagon with an 18:9 aspect ratio display. Since it won’t have a traditional home button the fingerprint sensor might be mounted on the side bezel.
No further details are available at this point in time. It’s also unclear when Meizu is planning on launching this device but it’s likely we’ll see more leaked in the coming days if this device really is in the pipeline.
