Meizu had lots to say today, the company has held a press conference in Beijing. This China-based smartphone OEM has introduced three devices during the event, their new Meizu MX5 flagship, which we’ve already talked about, and two additional devices we’re going to talk about in a minute. The Meizu MX5 is a new affordable flagship by this Chinese company, and they’ve once again made a really compelling devices. This thing features a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, 20.7-megapixel rear-facing shooter with Laser AF, fast charge capabilities, fingerprint scanner and an all-metal build. On top of all of this, the standard 16GB model of the phone costs only 1,799 Yuan, and there are three variants available. Read more about it by clicking here.
That being said, Meizu has also announced a VR Glasses and a recently leaked power bank. Meizu’s newly announced VR glasses are actually called ‘Depth-VR’, and the company didn’t talk much about them, but they did mention that they’ll cost only 49 Yuan. These VR glasses actually resemble Google Cardboard, we’ll let you know if any additional info surfaces though. Meizu has also announced the power bank which actually popped up earlier today. We had the image of this accessory, but had no idea what kind of battery capacity will it offer. Well, Meizu has showed off the design of this power bank and said that there’s a 10,000mAh battery on the inside, which is very nice considering the accessory looks rather small. This power bank is very interesting not only because of its design and battery capacity, but because of its features. This thing actually offers fast charging capability, and it works both ways, no matter whether you’re charging it or charging a phone with it (you can fully charge it in 3.5 hours). The Meizu Power Bank is priced at 149 Yuan ($23), and it will be available for purchase starting July 31st.
There you have it folks, these are the devices Meizu has announced in Beijing today. We still don’t know when will the Depth-VR be available for purchase, but it is to be expected that it will roll out at the same time as Meizu’s Power Bank. Either way, we’ll keep you posted.
