Meizu Preparing New Device With iPhone-Like Home Button Without Fingerprint Scanner, Low Price

Be advised, that the info you’re about to get comes from a relatively poorly translated Chinese source. It appears that on June 2nd, Meizu plans to unveil in Beijing a new product, possibly a Blue Charm handset.


It will sport an oval-shaped Home button, without a fingerprint scanner included and Android will be on board. The device will be rounded and in the long run, the designers of Meizu are trying to get rid of all the iPhone similarities, apparently. The phone is said to cost $161 and seems to come in black, with a gray frame around the edges.

The Settings area we find here is pretty interesting, with a gray and white approach and the separation in columns of options. The OS is shown as Android 5.1.0, but the customization is not yet clear. Next to the phone we see the MX4 Pro, with Flyme OS, so this is probably the same software on this model.
