We already know that Meizu is gearing up to launch three new smartphones in China on April 22, which is this coming Sunday. The company will reportedly launch the Meizu 15, Meizu 15 Plus and Meizu M15 smartphones. Over the past couple of weeks, we have come across a number of leaks and rumors that shed light on the expected specifications and features of the smartphones.

Now, specifications of all three smartphones have been leaked, thanks to a photo of a brochure that surfaced on Weibo (spotted by SlashLeaks). The Meizu 15 will come with a 5.46-inch full HD+ OLED display, whereas the Meizu 15 Plus will sport a slightly larger 5.95-inch panel.

Under the hood, the Meizu 15 Plus will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 8895 octa-core SoC, the same flagship chipset that powers the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 smartphones. It is paired with 6GB of RAM with 64GB or 128GB storage, depending on the variant you choose. The smartphone will feature a 3,500mAh battery with mCharge (12V at 2A) fast charging tech.

The Meizu 15, on the other hand, will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core SoC. The chipset will be paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB storage. To keep things ticking, the smartphone will be armed with a 3,000mAh battery.

In the photography department, both smartphones will come with dual cameras at the back – a 12-megapixel sensor with 1.55µm pixels and f/1.8 aperture along with a 20-megapixel secondary sensor. Up front, a 20-megapixel camera for selfies and video calling. To enhance your photos, the cameras will come with AI features as well.

Lastly, the Meizu M15 which will serve as ‘Lite’ model, featuring a 5.46-inch full HD+ LTPS LCD display. Under the hood, the smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 octa-core SoC paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage. Unlike the Meizu 15 and Meizu 15 Plus, the Meizu M15 will feature a single 20-megapixel camera at the back, and a 12-megapixel front camera.

On the software front, all three smartphones will most likely run on Android 7.0 Nougat OS, with Flyme 7 UI on top. While the leaked brochure does not mention Android version, the Flyme 7 skin is based on Nougat. It is a bit disappointing, considering the latest Android Oreo version is also over 7 months old, but we will have to wait until Meizu officially announces the smartphones.
