Meizu has confirmed that its upcoming Snapdragon 865-based premium device, the 17 5G, will launch on May 8, 2020. In the meantime, it is hyping the new phone up with a series of posters capturing its more compelling specs. They include a 4500mAh battery that charges at 30 watts (W).

Meizu is an OEM that is gearing up to launch its 2020 flagship, the 17. It will be a 5G phone thanks to its Snapdragon 865 SoC and X55 modem. Furthermore, its official leaks now point to state-of-the-art UFS 3.1 memory, something with which not many premium devices have been introduced thus far.

Meizu has also let it slip that the 17 will ship with a 4500mAh battery that can charge at a OnePlus-threatening rate of 30W. Then again, it appears to have a more standard 90Hz refresh rate for its (possibly AMOLED) display.

Finally, Meizu's promotional campaign appears to confirm that the 17 5G will have a quad rear camera that will rejuvenate the Samsung Galaxy S10-esque letter-box housing for this year. This indication comes in the form of a poster showing special-edition illustrated cases for the phone.

Finally, the Meizu 17 is rumored to start at only 3999 yuan - less than US$570, in other words.

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.
