The Chinese giant Meizu launched a new range of devices recently with 16:9 displays in China. They all run Flyme OS 7, a custom UI, customized heavily with proprietary apps. Announcing the partnership with Google, Meizu said that it is working on an Android One handset as seen in the leaks.
The leak comes from none other than the FCC. Without any doubt, we can conclude that it’ll be a budget-centric smartphone running Android One. There’s not much information about the device yet, but we do have some structural details. Using Android One instead of Flyme OS will be a great trump card for Meizu to compete with Chinese tech giants like Xiaomi, Vivo, Huawei and many more.
A device from Meizu recently got certified from the FCC (Federal Communications Commission). The defined model number is mentioned as M810L and is going to be the company’s first Android One smartphone. Android One out of the box points to Android 8.1.0 out of the box hopefully. We guess there’ll be a generic 16:9 IPS display, but there are still chances of looking towards 18:9 or 19:9 display since it is 2018. From the picture above, we don’t see any fingerprint scanner at the back; we can expect it to be either on the front or the side. Looking at the render, we’re able to see that the volume buttons and the power button are on the right. The SIM card tray is while on the left side of the phone.
It looks like Meizu will retain the 3.5 mm headphone jack for sure. The FCC leaks on the other side point out towards the device having Dual SIMs and LTE support. Although we aren’t sure how the device will perform, we can tell something for sure that the device will be performing very good at the market.
