Chinese smartphone manufacturer Meizu launched their Meizu E2 smartphone last year in April. The device featured a unique design that had quad LED flash stacked horizontally on the upper antenna band. Just in time for its successor, a leaked image of the Meizu E3 has surfaced on Weibo which reveals a complete change in terms of design and also its specs.
According to the image, the Meizu E3 will be sporting a new design and dual cameras on the rear stacked in a vertical arrangement along with an LED flash below. The smartphone appears to have a full metallic body where the antenna bands are visible on the top and bottom edges of the device.
According to the speculations, the E3 will be featuring a full-screen design which hints to the fact that the smartphone may be another device from Meizu which will be having a side mounted fingerprint sensor after the Meizu M6S and the upcoming Meizu 15 Plus smartphone. Also, the device is likely to carry the pressure-sensitive Super mBack button which was first introduced on the Meizu M6S.
From the image, it looks the device shown is just a prototype under work since it doesn’t have the branding from the company. There is no other information about the specs of the device. MediaTek will be unveiling its Helio P70 and Helio P40 chipsets on Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 this month. So it’s possible that the E3 may be powered by one of this chipsets.
As per the rumours, the Meizu E3 will make its debut in March this year. However, there is also a strong possibility of the device making the appearance in the MWC event. As for the pricing the Meizu E2 came with a price tag of 1299 Yuan (Rs 13,000 approx). So we can expect similar pricing for the Meizu E3. It will be competing against the like of Xiaomi A1 and Honor 7X.
