The Meizu Zero has no buttons or ports

Meizu just took it to the next level

We’ve been seeing brands getting rid of headphone jacks on their smartphones but Meizu just took it to the next level.

The Meizu Zero has no volume or power buttons, no charging port, no headphone jack, no SIM card slot and no speaker grill. It does have two tiny holes for the microphone at the bottom.

The ceramic unibody design with no buttons gives the phone a seamless and minimalistic look – the trend devices are trying to go for these days. It sports a 6-inch notchless AMOLED display with thin top and bottom bezels – which gives it a Galaxy S9 look.

As for the buttons, Meizu uses a haptic feedback system working as virtual buttons. The phone can transfer data only wirelessly and Meizu promises high speed wireless charging at 18W.

It uses eSIM instead of classical SIM, there’s an under-glass fingerprint scanner and using Meizu’s mSound 2.0 In-screen Sound Technology, the display works as the phone’s speaker.

There isn’t much we know about the specs and pricing of the Zero right now.

It won’t take long before having no buttons and no ports on a phone become a thing – like what happened with the headphone jack.
