The Meizu 15 Plus is actually bigger than the Meizu 15, as it sports a 5.95 inches screen, an AMOLED panel with QHD resolution. With no notch or taller screen, the manufacturer cut the bezel down to just 1.175mm, which is actually the narrowest bezel in the world.

Meizu 15 Plus Specifications, Price and Availability

The Meizu 15 Plus is powered by an odd choice of chipset, the Exynos 8895 from last year’s Samsung Flagships. The chipset is coupled with a massive 6GB of RAM, and its internal storage is either 64GB or 128GB. It does not come with an additional SD card slot, this might be a downside.

Looking at the camera department, the Meizu 15 Plus packs a 12MP + 20MP dual camera setup at the back. The brand made a claim that it is the best camera that it has used at the moment. It comes with both OIS and EIS stabilization. The main sensor is a f/2.3 inch and has large 1.55 µm pixels. It sits behind a lens with a f/1.8 aperture and 4-axis optical image stabilization along with EIS for extra stability. The second sensor has a 2x telephoto lens (Meizu promises 3x “lossless” zoom). The camera is said to feature multi-frame noise reduction and HDR alghorithm at Huawei P20 level. The selfie camera is a 20 MP shooter.
