Meizu Technology Co. Ltd is a renowned Chinese consumer electronics company. Recently, the rapidly growing smartphone market witnessed a spike in the production of a number of pop-up camera phones this year. The additive factor is the availability at unbelievably reasonable prices after the design’s debut last year with Vivo’s unique NEX series. Now, there are models from OPPO, Vivo, and likely OnePlus and Xiaomi. Now, Meizu is set to join the fray with fresh reports of a patent application.
Without going into much details regarding the mechanism displayed in the patent, it wouldn’t be a long shot to say that Meizu could announce a handset with a pop-up camera in the near future although there are no such models we know of right now. Meizu had previously refrained from using the Apple-style notch design as it did not consider it an ideal solution for a full-screen design. The pop-up camera would be the right way to go for the Chinese smartphone maker.
