The Meizu 15 Plus appears on multiple benchmarks, QHD display and Exynos 8895 in tow
Meizu is set to release its first premium device for the year. The company has released the M6s and the E3 already this year, with both devices being excellent offerings in their price brackets. The Meizu 15 devices will ramp up the style, though, which is about expected considering the fact that they're in celebration of the company's 15-year anniversary.
The Meizu 15 Plus made an appearance on AnTuTu a few days, finally letting us in on its details. According to the listing, the device will feature a 1440x2560 display. This is quite interesting, as it means the device could sport a traditional 16:9 display ratio. Of course, the listing could also fail to account for an 18:9 ratio, so it isn't concrete.
The listing also shows the device with 6 GB of RAM—about par for flagships these days—and an Exynos 8895. The Exynos 8895 was Samsung's premium SoC for 2017 (it was used on the Galaxy S8), so while this may be a tad disappointing, it's still a very capable processor. The GPU on show here is the Mali G71, which isn't bad either.
Quite annoyingly, the listing shows the device running on Android Nougat. Oreo was released eight months ago, and this reeks of negligence from Meizu.
The Meizu 15 Plus has also made the trip over to Geekbench, posting scores that are about par for devices powered by the Exynos 8895—and confirming what we saw on AnTuTu.
The Meizu 15 devices are billed for an April 22 launch.
