A dubious leak points to a new phone called the Meizu 17T
Online stores often post listings for new phones ahead of their official launch events. However, one of the latest of these created by JD.com makes us wonder if one of their staff members has either got something very wrong or knows something the rest of us do not.
The page in question concerns the Meizu 17T, a phone that, according to JD, will launch soon. That would be intriguing enough, and is all the more so considering the OEM has stated that it will release the 17 only on May 8, 2020.
This page contains posters hyping specs such as a 90Hz display, the Snapdragon 865 SoC and 30 watt (W) charging - all of which could have been lifted from the Meizu 17's press packets to date. Then again, there is such a thing as a 16T; furthermore, the upcoming flagship is rumored to come with a second, more premium variant.
It has been assumed that it would be called the 17 Pro, but could also be this 17T. Its new apparent JD sales page exhibits a design previously linked to its imminent series, along with a placeholder price. That is somewhat of a shame, as the genuine info would help confirm or deny the leaks that point to marked affordability in the vanilla 17.
