Meizu Zero minimalist phone has no buttons, no ports

The world's first monolithic phone with no holes and no buttons looks stunning

Meizu announces the Meizu zero, the world's first holeless phone. However, with the help of mSound 2.0 In-screen Sound Technology, rearrangement of device internals, and improved audio materials, the smartphone can use its display both as a speaker and as an earpiece.

'As the world's first true non-porous wireless smartphone, Meizu Zero is the new door to the future flagship smart mobile terminal with its sophisticated and powerful technology, ' the firm wrote in a blog post.

At first glance, this also applies to the Meizu Zero, because here too the 5.9-inch AMOLED display with narrow bezels extends across the front. According to the company it'll support fast wireless charging at up to 18w, making it the fastest wireless charging available, besting Huawei's Mate 20Pro. Meizu doesn't officially sell its smartphones in Canada, however, so don't expect Candian availability.

What the heck then is the Holeless phone? well, our guess is that Meizu could be launching a phone with virtually no hole that qualifies as opening including a charging port or a 3.5mm headphone jack, instead, the handset may only support wireless charging and bone conduction sound technology.

On the camera front, the device is home to a dual-camera setup at the back, rated at 12MP ( Sony IMX380 sensor) and 20MP (Sony IMX350 sensor) with support for the AI smart engine for enhancing AI camera features. One contains a microphone, while the other is a reset button since there is no physical power button.

Chinese phone maker Meizu has a bit of a reputation for creating iPhone-like devices.

Virtual buttons that are pressure sensitive are within the phone edges.

It's great that Meizu has included faster wireless charging technology, but it still can't compete with cable charging speeds. The smartphone uses eSIM functionality which is a virtual SIM already equipped in the device. And there's an under-glass fingerprint sensor for unlocking it. To solve this problem, the company relies on a permanently installed eSIM.

"Meizu zero is like a natural jade, without traces of artificial carving". It comes powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with Adreno 630 GPU.
