Meizu plans to introduce the 2020 flagship smartphones with 5G connectivity. We expect at least three devices – Meizu 17, Meizu 17 Pro and Meizu 17T. Thanks to a variety of teasers, we already know a lot about these new flagship devices. Now a popular Chinese retailer has updated its product page for the Meizu 17 with price information. Just a day before the official start.
According to JD.com, the Meizu 17 with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage costs 4,000 CNY (USD 565 / EUR 525). There is also 8 GB RAM with 256 GB memory variant. However, the price for this variant seems to be only a placeholder. The company currently allows customers to pre-book this handset for 100 CNY.
Unfortunately there are no details on the price of the 17 Pro and the 17T model yet. However, the former is more expensive than the vanilla variant. It is equipped with a ceramic build and has 12 GB RAM in the high-end model.
Meizu 17 specifications
The new handset has a Super AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. This panel has a hole in the top right for a single selfie snapper. On the back is a horizontally aligned quad camera setup with a 64 megapixel shooter. The handset is powered by a 4,500 mAh battery with 30 W quick charge. It runs on Android 10-based Flyme 8.1 and comes with a new haptic engine called mEngine 3.0. It is powered by the almighty Snapdragon 865 SoC.
All devices of the 17 series will be presented tomorrow in China. So stay tuned for more details.
