Meizu 17 photographed in the wild with battery indicator around the punch hole camera

The Meizu 17 has been spotted in the wild, showing off an unusual feature - a ring around its punch hole camera that indicates the battery charge. We've seen apps that do this, but this appears to be an official feature.

It helps that the selfie cam is positioned in the top right corner of the screen (most other makers put the punch hole in the top left or center). This way the battery charge is next to the signal strength indicator and the clock, just where it belongs.

The phone will be fully unveiled in April, but so far we know that it will feature a 90Hz screen. This will be Meizu's first 5G phone (and Wi-Fi 6), a nice gift for the company's 17th birthday.

Meizu makes the best-looking phones according to me. It's a shame we don't get them in our country. And I'm kinda sceptical going to a not-so-common Korean brand.
