The Chinese company presented three new smartphones with interesting specifications and cameras but surprisingly kept the Android Nougat operating system
Meizu triples its smartphone offer with the new M15, M15 Plus and M15 Lite , just presented to the Chinese press and ready to arrive on the same Asian market starting next April 29.
Designed to celebrate Meizu's 15 years in business, the three devices have technical features that cover a bit of all the mid-to-high sectors of the smartphone market. Just read the three data sheets Meizu 15, Meizu 15 Lite and Meizu 15 Plus to realize the tactics implemented by the Chinese manufacturer: while adopting a rather standard design (screen with 16:9 ratio, although with very thin bezels), Meizu winks as much to those looking for a device with an excellent value for money (with the Lite version) or to those looking for a high-performance device (the Plus model). Whether or not this is a winning tactic, it will be the users to decide: from April 29 will be on sale in China, while it is not yet known when they will land in the West.
