Meizu is expected to launch three new smartphones on April 22 in China – the Meizu 15, Meizu 15 Lite and Meizu 15 Plus. The event is scheduled to kick off at 7:30PM local time, which translates to 5PM in India. Ahead of the launch, we have come across leaked specifications and features of the smartphones, and now someone has managed to run it through the paces on Antutu benchmark, revealing some key specifications.
As per the benchmark listing, The Meizu 15 Plus is powered by Samsung’s homebrew Exynos 8895 octa-core SoC, which is the same chipset that powers last year’s Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 flagship smartphones. The listing also revals that the Meizu 15 Plus will come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage.
While you would expect the smartphone to run Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box, benchmark listing hints at Android 7.0 Nougat OS. Also, the smartphone will feature a display running at 2560x1440pixels, which is the conventional 16:9 aspect ratio, which is another thing disappointing about the device.

Previous leaks hint at a 5.95-inch AMOLED display, and a 3,430mAh battery to keep things ticking. In the photography department, camera sample captured on the smartphone has surfaced on Weibo too (spotted by GizmoChina), and it hints at dual camera setup. Leaks point at a 12-megapixel sensor paired with a 20-megapixel sensor. There is no word on whether the second sensor will be monochrome one, or will feature a telephoto lens for optical zoom capabilities. Up front, a 20-megapixel camera for selfies and video calling is likely to be in tow.
The Meizu 15, on the other hand, is expected to come with a smaller 5.46-inch AMOLED display running at full HD resolution. It could feature a 2,940mAh battery, and most likely run on the same Exynos 8895 SoC as the Meizu 15 Plus. Pricing and availability details are scarce at the moment, but we will get more details on April 22, when Meizu launches the smartphones. Till then, stay tuned.
