Meizu 17 series: NFC and Samsung Super AMOLED display

We return to talk about the Meizu 17 series, expected for the debut on May 8th, thanks to the publication of new advertising images by the Chinese house which confirm some of the specifications of the next smartphones.

We have known for a long time that the new Meizu 17 and the Pro variant will be equipped with an AMOLED type display, but now new details are emerging. In particular, we now know that the two smartphones will use a SuperAMOLED panel made by Samsung, whose specifications have been customized by the Chinese house.

We do not know what the interventions made by Meizu are, but we remind you that we are talking about screens capable of supporting a refresh rate of 90Hz, which integrate a vision protection system ( probably in reference to the management of blue light ) and that offer a small hole in which the front camera will be placed.

The advertisements shared by Meizu also remind us that the 17 series will offer full support for NFC technology – with particular attention to credit card payments – and that the devices will be equipped with the new mEngine 3.0 linear vibration motor. The latter should offer excellent quality vibration feedback since it is a solution very similar to the Taptic Engine that we have found on Apple’s smartphones for some time.
