Meizu 16s announced: No notch, Snapdragon 855, and a lot of megapixels

Chinese phone maker Meizu made headlines earlier this year with the Meizu Zero, an attention snatching, yet ultimately failed portless concept device.

In epic fail, Meizu's $1300 portless phone gets just 29 pre-orders on Indiegogo

A little over a month ago, Meizu announced that its portless "concept" phone, the Zero, would be available to actually buy via an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.

When they took the headphone jack away, we all griped about it and kept buying phones. Now, Meizu has offered up a vision of the dystopian future we've brought upon ourselves. The Meizu Zero is a smartphone with no ports or buttons whatsoever. If you need to reset the phone, you better hope you've got a SIM ejector handy. Oh, you can't use that to eject a SIM card, though, because this phone doesn't have a SIM slot.
