Meizu has launched the Meizu M6S as its first phone with full screen design. The Meizu 15 and Meizu 15 Plus are expected to launch in celebration of the 15th anniversary of the company. Since the Meizu M6S was launched with 18:9 display, it is very likely that the Meizu 15 Plus high-end phone will arrive with full screen design. Unlike the thick bezels on the M6S, the Meizu 15 Plus is likely to arrive with slim bezels like the recent renders that have been revealed by the rumor mill.
Even though Meizu M6S has sufficient space for the fingerprint scanner on its chin and backside, the company chose to place it as a separate module apart from the Power button on the side of the phone. There is no confirmation on the placement of fingerprint sensor on the Meizu 15 Plus. Could it be placed on the side embedded under the Power key? Or could it be placed under its display?
The Meizu M6S does not feature physical mBack, but comes with a multifunctional Super mBack on-screen button. The Super mBack is based on 3D Touch technology which allows users to return by touching on it or access Home by pressing on it or swipe upwards to access app switcher. It is highly like that Meizu 15 Plus will feature Super mBack function.
Meizu has recently built relationship with Qualcomm by launching Snapdragon 625 powered Meizu Note 6 and also with Samsung by debuting Exynos 7872 powered Meizu M6S. Rumors have it that Meizu 15 Plus will be either driven by Snapdragon 845/835 or Exynos 8895 chipset.
Meizu has lost a lot of market share in China as it had launched only Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus as major phones and it did not catch on to the full screen design trend. Hence, the Meizu 15 Plus is an extremely important phone for the company. Speculations are rife that Meizu would be launching a slightly lowered specced Meizu 15 alongside the Meizu 15 Plus. These phones are expected to debut by March this year.
