The white front panel of smartphones is in Meizu's genes

The white front panel is emblematic of Meizu smartphones, it is in the company’s genes. Over the years, almost all of its models had white-bezel variants.

Mobile phone manufacturers are avoiding white panels because of their high cost, especially in the era of bezel-less phones. However, Meizu did not betray its fans of the white panel. Until this year…

This year’s Meizu 18 series has a four-sided curved display, which further complicates the production of a beautiful-looking white panel. In addition, the wastage rate is very high. However, the company decided to please the biggest fans with a very limited series with white bezels on the top version of the smaller model from this year’s flagships.

From Meizu 18 Chinese White Dolphin Rare Edition 12/256GB were produced only 88 units with an individual box number from 01 to 88. Despite the high price of 5888 yuan, it was sold out instantly. The number 01 was additionally sold at a charity auction on the Jingdong website, and the proceeds were donated to the environmental organization Alxa SEE. At the auction, the Meizu 18 Chinese White Dolphin Rare Edition reached a price of just over 35,000 yuan (about $5,500).

Let’s take a look in the gallery which Meizu smartphones have received white bezels, with the stipulation that it is possible to have a pass, as well as that some of the models are designed only for the Chinese or only for the global market.
