eSim, I’m Sound 2.0, all’mngine: if you’re a real geek, these technologies should sound familiar. All these novelties – and others – will be present in the new product presented by the electronics company Meizu, which since 2003 has specialized in the production of high-level, low-cost smartphones.

A worthy competitor of Apple apparently, since already in 2007 it presented the Meizu M8, a release that paid a high price: just a week after the presentation, Apple filed a complaint because the smartphone was very similar to the model of iPhone EDGE.

But back to us: the Meizu Zero takes its name precisely for the absence of connectors or keys, the design includes a hole for the microphone and the hard reset of the phone, while the remaining components interface via wireless connection and through the screen.

How? Simple. As far as the SIM is concerned, eSIM or virtual SIM technology is used; in the first case, we are talking about a micro-device that contains the data contained so far in the classic card provided by the telephone operator.

In the second case, on the other hand, you sign a contract with a telephone operator via the configurations of your smartphone – a feature currently presented only for iOS systems.

Speaking of audio, not having available the holes for the sound output, the manufacturers have adopted the technology I’mSound 2.0, which exploits the vibrations of the glass in the display to spread the audio, as for the model presented by Xiaomi Mi Mix.

Clearly, as far as charging is concerned, an 18W wireless charger with Super Wireless mCharge fast charge is provided, which takes just 20 minutes to fill up our smartphone with power; the power is turned on by touching on the body that the system detects as a power on request.

The security, moreover, and the unlocking of the phone, is guaranteed by a sensor integrated in the screen that uses fingerprint recognition and facial recognition.

In fact, at the end of January, the company opened the pre-orders on IndieGogo, suggesting that it intends to realize and distribute it, provided, however, that the gadget reaches the target of funds set, ie 100 thousand dollars. It shouldn’t take many buyers: the price for Meizu Zero has been fixed at 1300 dollars.

A few more weeks of patience, then, in the hope that the final plans will finally be revealed!
