“The upcoming Meitu smartphone seems to have triple rear cameras that flip open to take selfies and video calling”
Meitu, best known for its beauty apps, seems to be gearing up to launch its first smartphone since Xiaomi took charge of its hardware business last year. Noted tipster Ice Universe has shared a leaked teaser image for the upcoming Meitu-branded smartphone. The image reveals the back panel of the handset, which looks quite similar to the ASUS 6Z smartphone, which is the latest flagship offering from ASUS with a rear camera setup that flips open to take selfies and video calling.
The leaked poster for the Meitu flip camera smartphone shows a square-shaped camera module at the top edge of the back panel, which is ajar suggesting that it’ll flip up to work as a front camera as well. However, unlike ASUS, Xiaomi will be employing as many as three sensors along with LED flash on the module. We don’t have the details for all sensors yet, but the primary camera will feature a 48MP sensor.
Apart from this, the Meitu phone seems to have a gradient finish and a glossy back. There is no fingerprint scanner on the back, which means it could feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. The edges of the handset have a pink hue, with a volume rocker and power button on the right spine. Lastly, the text above the image of the photo roughly translates to “Meitu Little Fairy.” That’s all the information we have at the moment.
The specifications of the handset remains a mystery at the moment as does its fascia. However, since Meitu is opting for a movable camera setup, we may expect the phone to have a frameless display with no hindrance from bezel or notch whatsoever. It’ll most likely be a mid-range offering with the company’s proprietary apps to further enhance its photography skills.
