Meizu, the China-based brand is all set to launch three new smartphones in its 2018 lineup dubbed as the Meizu 15, Meizu 15 Lite and Meizu 15 Plus respectively. Prior to their launch, the phones’ listings have surfaced on the Android website telling us what we can expect from these phones.

Despite that, the bezels on Meizu’s offerings appear to be more prominent than its counterparts. The Meizu 15 has a circular fingerprint center located on the bottom which takes up quite some space and to balance that, a forehead is present on the top as well.
To start off with the displays on the phones, the Meizu 15 Lite and Meizu 15 come with 5.5-inch screens. The larger Meizu 15 Plus will have a slightly larger screen spanning 6-inches across. The build design of the phones hasn’t been revealed yet but as a safe bet, we can expect a metal body device. It would also be nice if the brand enhanced the displays with some sort of protection like Gorilla Glass.
On the storage front, the Meizu 5 will pack in either 64GB or 128GB of memory with support for expandable storage through microSD cards. The toned down Meizu 15 Lite will be offered with either 32GB or 64GB of storage. Similar to the mid-range model, the Meizu Plus will also be offered with either 64GB or 128GB of memory.
Considering the fact that that the phones look more or less the same and have similar storage variants, Meizu is expected to integrate different processors with each offering. The Meizu 15 will be powered by the Snapdragon 660 SoC. There hasn’t been much information in the optics department, but looking at the recent trend, we won’t be surprised to see the smartphones rocking a dual-camera setup. The front cameras will also be able to use face-unlock for logging into the phones.
All three phones are expected to launch on March 21st when the brand will be celebrating their fifteenth anniversary. It is very likely for these phones to come to the Indian market as well as they seem to have the potential to compete with other Chinese smartphone brands currently selling in India.
