The OEM Meizu has already confirmed that its upcoming premium smartphone 17-series will come with 30-watt (W) "mCharge" standard. Now, it has hinted at the prospect of a powerbank with the same technology. This would be handy in the absence of the gallium nitride (GaN) charger the phones are also rumored to ship with.

Meizu has already hyped the imminent Snapdragon 865-powered 17 5G phone with specs such as UFS 3.1 and 30-watt charging. This will be delivered through a proprietary standard called the mCharge system. Now, according to a new poster, it may also release a power bank with the same kind of charging.

Further leaks have suggested that its compatible phone may come with a GaN power brick out of the box. This state-of-the-art charging technology is credited with improved speeds and efficiency compared to traditional silicon, along with less heat emitted while in use.

This, then, may be why a Meizu representative has reportedly stated there is "no need to worry" while using the 17's apparent combination of charging specs. It may also be fortuitious should the rumored Pro variant of this phone with 40W charging (and wireless charging) also turn up at the OEM's launch event, which is scheduled for May 8, 2020.

This live-stream may also confirm or deny new tips that point to a ceramic rear panel in this 17 Pro 5G, which may come in an "azure" finish.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
