Meizu doesn’t fall prey to the notch, new Meizu 15 series phones with 16:9 display launched

Meizu 15
Meizu just unveiled three phones with an unusually interesting looking spec sheet. They come with traditional 16:9 displays completely defying the tall aspect ratio trend and come with Exynos chipsets inside. With a premium design and a traditional approach, Meizu 15 series hopes to make some dent in the smartphone world.

Meizu 15 Plus, 15, 15 lite – specifications and features

The Meizu 15 Plus and 15 come with 16:9 displays with thin bezels which make them smaller than most 16:9 phones with these screen sizes. The 15 Plus has a 5.95-inch 2k display while the Meizu 15 comes with a 1080p panel. Both these panels are Super AMOLED and have been sourced from Samsung. Meizu-Samsung partnership has been a long-term affair and you’ll see more of that here. The 15 Lite comes with a 1080p display, but it’s an LTPS LCD panel, unlike the AMOLED panel on the other two.

The 15 Plus comes with the Exynos 8895 chipset (the same chipset that powers the Samsung Galaxy S8) coupled with 6GB of RAM. The Meizu 15 comes with the Snapdragon 660 and 4GB RAM, while the 15 lite comes with the Snapdragon 626 and 4GB RAM. 
Coming to the cameras, both the 15 Plus and 15 come with a 12MP + 20MP Dual camera setup with one of them being a telephoto lens boasting a 3x Optical Zoom. Both of them also come with OIS which should make the video experience enjoyable. The camera glass is surrounded by an LED ring with 6 LEDs for a bright flashlight. The Meizu 15 Lite comes with a single 12MP f/1.9 lens at the back with a pixel size of 1.4 µm. 
It’s great to see all of them come with USB Type-C ports with the 15 Plus packing a rather small 3500mAh battery and the other two with 3000mAh batteries inside.
