Another phone with under-display selfie camera shows up in leaked hands on video

    As seen in the video, there is no cut-out for the selfie camera on the screen. That means that it can have the same technology as introduced by ZTE for its Axon 20 5G.

    Meizu is one of those brands that is not as active in India, as it is in China and select countries. Last May it unveiled the Meizu 17 smartphone series, and it looks like this year it will introduce the Meizu 18 lineup slightly ahead of its scheduled time. This is because an alleged Meizu 18 smartphone has appeared in a new hands-on video on Weibo (via GSM Arena), indicating that its ready to launch.

    In the video, we can see the device with an all screen front and slim bezels. However, there is one interesting change which we haven't seen in any smartphone yet (except for one device from ZTE). It's the selfie camera that is placed under the screen.

    As seen in the video, there is no cut-out for the selfie camera on the screen. That means that it can have the same technology as introduced by ZTE for its Axon 20 5G. The details of the product are scarce for now. However, going by the rumours it is said that Meizu may launch two smartphones under the series, including one with a ‘Pro' moniker, as both of them showed up recently in 3C certifications. 

    The certification also revealed that they will feature 30W and 40W fast charging support. Some rumours have also indicated that there could be a Meizu 18 ‘Max' variant that can come with 120W fast charging.

    In future we may see more brands coming with this tech. Reports state that both Xiaomi and Oppo are working on similar smartphones too. More recently, Realme's vice president and president of global marketing Xu Qi shared a photo on Weibo that shows a smartphone without a notch on the display. This is a direct hint at the fact that the company is getting ready to launch a device with an under-display camera tech.
