A possible leak of an upcoming bezel-less device from Chinese smartphone manufacturer Meizu has today surfaced online.
Meizu’s Head of Global Marketing, Ard Boudeling, said recently that the company will introduce a ‘bezel-less’ handset next year. This render is supposedly the handset in question.
Judging on the design, it seems to unmistakably take ideas from the Samsung Galaxy S8. On the front is a bezel-less display which appears to have an iris scanner just above it (judging by the two sensors). The screen appears to extend the full length of the bottom while just stopping short of the top. Moving to the back and the device sports a dual camera setup, with an LED flash in-between. Interestingly, the handset seems to completely lack a fingerprint sensor, perhaps another hint of iris scanning technology getting shipped as the norm.
The source who passed this image to Gizchina claims that the device will be called “Meizu mblu Zero” which, quite frankly is a horrific name. However, this name has popped up a few times and continues to rear its head when leaks are abound. Meizu is yet to confirm if the image is accurate so for now, just treat it as a prototype render/ hoax and nothing else.
