Meizu is expected to introduce a full screen design phone under its sub-brand named Blue Charm. It is poised to launch in the first half of next year with a price tag of 3,000 Yuan (~$450). Fresh images of a Meizu phone with a model number of m1712 have surfaced. The specifications of the smartphone are not known, but the images do reveal what to expect from its design.
As it can be seen in the above images, the fingerprint scanner is neither present on the front or rear side of the Meizu m1712. There seems to be a dedicated recess for the fingerprint reader on the right edge of the phone. It could launch as the first full screen phone with side-mounted fingerprint sensor. HTC too is rumored to be working on such a phone that will have side-mounted fingerprint reader.
The smartphone features rounded edges and the back panel has a single camera that is accompanied by a LED flash. A small on-screen circle seems to be consistently present on the phone even on the lock screen. The handset is running on Android 7.0 Nougat.
