Meizu is a Chinese brand that is not particularly well-known in the west, but it is fairly popular in a few Asian markets for selling solid phones at a budget price. The company has now launched its latest flagship offerings- the Meizu 17 and 17 Pro.

The Meizu 17 duo pack all the bells and whistles that you’d expect from a 2020 flagship, but they start at almost half the price of a Galaxy S20 or Huawei P40 series phone. You get Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 865 chip, a 90Hz AMOLED display, a 64MP primary snapper sitting alongside three other cameras at the back, 5G and Wi-Fi 6 support, and even wireless charging.

The two phones look identical and share a lot of their internal hardware. The Meizu 17 Pro, however, has a slightly better camera setup as it sports an 8MP telephoto lens and also offers wireless charging support with an impressive 27W output. Listed below are the Meizu 17 and its Pro sibling’s specifications:
