The Meizu Zero features a 3D ceramic build with a unibody design. Instead of physical buttons for power and volume, the Meizu Zero phone features virtual buttons on the edges that are equipped with a pressure-sensitive mEngine 2.0 linear motor. It is an IP68 rated waterproof and dust resistant smartphone.

The Meizu Zero features a curved OLED screen measuring 5.99 inches. While the resolution is unspecified, it is likely to be a full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The display is embedded with an optical fingerprint scanner. There is no earpiece above the display of the phone. The Meizu Zero can emit sound through its display by means of the mSound 2.0 screen sound technology.

Performance and Camera

One of the innovative features of the Meizu Zero is that it features the company’s self-developed 18W superfast wireless charging technology which works like 18W wired fast charging. The Chinese manufacturer claimed that it filed 75 patents for over twp years to develop the mSuper Charge 2.0 technology. The exact capacity of the Meizu Zero’s battery is yet to be confirmed. The Snapdragon 845 chipset is the driving force of the Meizu Zero. It is assisted by an unspecified amount of LPDDR4X RAM.

The Meizu Zero borrows its front and rear cameras from the Meizu 16th smartphone. The top bezel of the Meizu Zero is home to the 20-megapixel selfie camera. On the rear, it features a 12-megapixel Sony IMX380 + 20-megapixel Sony IMX350 dual camera module coupled by Meizu’s trademark ring flash.
