Meizu, a Chinese company, has unveiled its new range of smartphones, the 15 Series, and appears to be resisting current trends in telephone design. You will not find nicks or even high screens here – only large, intact rectangles. It is actually refreshing.
There are three phones: the 5.95-inch 1440p OLED Meizu 15 Plus, the 5.46-inch OLED Meizu 15, and the 5.46-inch Meizu 15 Lite LCD. The plus unusually uses a Samsung Exynoos 8895 processor – the same chip as in international models of the Galaxy S8 – while the 15 has a Snapdragon 660 and the Lite has a Snapdragon 626.
Design-wise, imagine an iPhone 7 Plus with thinner bezels on all four sides and you're pretty much there ̵
The two OLED models have a 20 megapixel and 12 megapixel reversing camera, while all three have 20 megapixel selfie cameras. The Lite and the 15 have 4GB of RAM and 3,000mAh of batteries, while the plus is upgraded to 6GB and 3,500mAh. All phones have headphone sockets.
Overall, the 15 Series looks like a pretty solid lineup if you were less enthusiastic about the way the phone's design has been lately. The plus is sold in China of 3,000 yuan (about $ 475), the 15th is sold for 2,500 yuan, and the lite costs 1,700 yuan (~ 270).
