Meizu announces its new flagship, the 17 5G, along with its May 2020 launch date
Meizu has revealed that it will launch its 17 5G on May 8, 2020. It has sent out what are being referred to as "press invites" to this effect, which consists of a box-like object with a horizontal cut-out. Its placement and orientation may hint at the appearance of the phone in question.
This new device has been rumored to come with quad rear cameras in a Samsung Galaxy S10-esque housing, which is what its "invite" could be getting at. This box also invites comparisons with a trash-can or a blast shield; however, according to the OEM, it is in fact a ballot box.
This ties in with the phone's new marketing campaign, revolving around the concept that its design will "win it votes". By this, Meizu presumably means consumers will do so with their wallets in its favor over other OEMs with phones running on the same Snapdragon 865 SoC with which the 17 5G is now also linked.
Hopefully, this will work out, as these devices will include new and compelling options such as the iQOO Neo3 by the time the Meizu alternative is released.
