It seems that Meizu turned to the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to finance its Meizu Zero smartphone concept without ports and without buttons.
The Zero campaign is held at Indiegogo in the United States, and the entrance fee (which gives you a sample of the Meizu Zero engineering development) is $ 1,299. If you do not know how the crowdfunding campaign works – the company sets the goal of funding (in the case of Meizu – $ 100,000), which is necessary for the project, and people promise him money. If Meizu reaches the target money that he set, he will produce Zero, and those who promised to exceed a certain threshold will eventually get one.
The campaign reports that the Meizu Zero engineering unit, priced at $ 1,299, will go on sale in April 2019, and there was 1 exclusive Pioneering Unit unit (priced at $ 2,999), which is expected to ship in January (so what tomorrow?) no longer.
Meizu Zero has a Snapdragon 845 chip, 4 GB of RAM, 5.99-inch 1080x2340px Super AMOLED, 12-megapixel rear camera with a resolution of 12 and 20 megapixels, a 20 megapixel front-facing camera and pressure-sensitive side buttons. It has no ports and can only be charged wirelessly – Meizu has developed an ultra-fast 18 watt solution. There is not even a SIM card slot, instead Meizu Zero uses eSIM.
