Meizu 15 was teased last year in November by the CEO Jack Wong who said the device would be getting a spring launch. The next month some images of the device were leaked online which revealed a design similar to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 but with more rounded corners.
According to a new report by PhoneArena, the smartphone lineup will be launched on April 22 and not in the line up with their 15th anniversary as previously thought. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has been pretty quiet about the product launch but thanks to a leaked poster we know the lineup may be unveiled in the next weeks.
The leak is in the form of a poster which confirms the launch will be in their home country. The lineup contains Meizu 15, Meizu 15 Lite, and Meizu 15 Plus. They will include 16:9 aspect ratio display and feature regular features like 4G LTE and fingerprint scanner. The device is rumoured to be available in two variants: 3 GB RAM + 32 GB internal storage and 6 GB RAM + 128 GB internal space. They will be running Android 8.0 Oreo.
The smartphone line up will be shipped one week later on April 29 and will be exclusively available to the Chinese market. However, we can expect the company to eventually launch the series into other markets in which India is one of the top priority. But the same can’t be said about the US market, as nothing have been confirmed as of yet. The Meizu Plus will cost CNY 2999 (Rs 30,000 approx) for the lower variant while the upper variant will be costing CNY 3499 (Rs 34,000 approx).
Interestingly Meizu is also rumoured to be working on the next in line Meizu 16 series and with the previous rumours of a late summer launch the Meizu 15 could have a very short run.
