Chinese smartphone maker Meizu has unveiled a new smartphone in its hometown called the E2. The smartphone offers a new design which is different than previous offerings from the smartphone manufacturer.

It is a metal smartphone with a very iPhone-like design, but what’s interesting here is the LED flash for the camera. Meizu has used four LED units stacked next to each other on the top antenna band. Looks neat, but we aren’t quite sure of how having a quad-LED flash setup will help in improving picture quality.

The specifications of the smartphone include a 5.5-inch Full-HD display (1920 x 1080 pixels). There are two variants including a 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of storage and another with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. The handset is powered by a MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core processor.

At the back there is a 13 MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture along with phase detection auto focus and of course the quad-LED flash. At the front there is an 8 MP shooter. The handset feature a 3,400 mAh battery which supports 18W fast charging. It also offers dual SIM support, 4G connectivity, a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button and Android 7.0 Nougat with Flyme 6.0 UI.

Meizu also announced a special Hi case for the handset that comes in a variety of colors. The case comes with a slider that covers the LED flash when not in use. The case somehow gives a very Nexus 6P like finish.

The smartphone will be available in three colours, Moonlight Silver, Champagne Gold, and Obsidian Black. There will also be a special Transformers Edition to mark the release of the fifth installment in the movie franchise.
