Meizu Zero Phone Has No Ports or Buttons

The world's first monolithic phone with no holes and no buttons looks stunning

A Chinese phone you can't buy packs features the iPhone XS and Galaxy S10 can only dream of

If buttons, ports, and speaker grilles give you real anxiety when looking at your smartphone, Meizu has the flawless handset for you. The Zero also eschews inbuilt speakers as well as bottom-edge ports. Forbes' Ben Sin says that the company claims the technology is greatly improved from the first version of this tech used in the Xiaomi Mi Mix.

Meizu has beaten Vivo by one day.

It's no secret that phasing out the 3.5mm headphone jack has been a headache for smartphone manufacturers, with consumers across the world voicing their disapproval. This sounds exactly like the sound-emitting display magic that Samsung showcased with its OLED screens in the summer of 2018.

And here are the key features: you have 18-watt fast wireless charging, the fastest we've ever seen on a modern phone, and the phone comes with a wireless charger in the box.

Instead of physical SIM card, the Meizu Zero is equipped with eSIM card.

As the ninja text was also accompanied by an emoji resembling a single camera module, it may have been reasonable to assume Meizu were referring to the emerging "punch-hole" trend, and may have already transcended it in some way.

Resident Evil 2 Review | This Is How Games Should Be Remade
Capcom is hoping to make this mode as replayable as possible, though there is no mention of whether multiplayer will be included. Though we don't know much about the mode, we do know that it will have a few enemies that players won't find in the base game.

Apart from that, it's a smooth, seamlessly designed phone. There are some clever workarounds thanks to brand new technology, but there are many out there that would consider certain compromises a deal breaker. The Zero, like the 16th, has a no-notch display. To achieve this design, the smartphone maker incorporated several innovative technologies into the device.

It comes powered by 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform and comes with LPDDR4X RAM.

Meizu claims that the device has been under development for nearly two years now.

On the camera front, the device is home to a dual-camera setup at the back, rated at 12MP ( Sony IMX380 sensor) and 20MP (Sony IMX350 sensor) with support for the AI smart engine for enhancing AI camera features.

The advantage of a design like this is that the phone will be dust and water-resistant out of the box (IP68 certification) - having no holes practically ensures that water can't get in it.

The company also failed to mention availability or pricing for the Zero at its launch event.
