A leak supposedly of the Meizu 18 Max 5G is doing the rounds online, and it points towards the smartphone being a true flagship challenger. Allegedly, Meizu's next smartphone will feature a 3K OLED screen, a Snapdragon 875 chipset, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage, among other attention-grabbing specifications. A render of the Meizu 18 Max 5G, possibly fan-made, does not look half-bad either.

Meizu is preparing to release a new smartphone, according to a leak on Weibo. Re-published by the likes of SeekDevice and GSMArena, the leak reputedly contains the specifications of the Meizu 18 Max 5G, along with a render of the device. The leak follows the release of the Meizu 17 series in May. Its veracity remains unconfirmed, though.

Apparently, the Meizu 18 Max will have a potent combination of hardware, including a 3K OLED screen and Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 875 chipset. UFS 3.1 storage is supposedly on board too, as is LPDRR5 RAM and a ZEISS-backed 64 MP primary camera.

Additionally, the same leak claims that the Meizu 18 Max 5G will support 120 W wired and 45 W wireless charging. Wattages this high would put the Meizu 18 Max 5G in contention with the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, which supports 55 W wireless charging and 120 W wired charging.

Ultimately, we are sceptical of the render that accompanies the leak. Firstly, the screen has practically no bezels whatsoever, nor is there an obvious cut-out for a USB Type-C port. We could be wrong, but we suspect that this is a fan-made render.
