With Christmas behind us, the smartphone rumour mill is has returned to full functionality, and its first product? A full reveal of the Meizu 15 Plus. At least, if you’re willing to believe a picture of a web page, shared on Chinese social media site Weibo.

The picture shows a design which sits somewhere between Essential’s eponymous smartphone and the HTC U11. Specially, that means a near edge-to-edge screen with a tiny circular camera notch cut out and a rounded glass (or metal) body. Though the picture isn’t the highest quality, it also reveals a vertically aligned dual-camera array on the rear and either a circular flash or a fingerprint reader on the rear.

Compared with photos of the device spotted in the wild earlier in the month, it’s clear that either the device has changed significantly since that pre-production model, or we’re looking at two different models.

Previously leaked images showed a metal body with prominent horizontal antenna lines, a front mounted fingerprint reader and no notch, just a solid black bar along the top. Indeed, another major change is the positioning the Meizu logo, which has shifted from the centre rear to the bottom right right rear.

So, all in all, we’re a little confused. Thankfully, we might not have to be for long. The 15 and 15 Plus are due to be announced in either February or March, in time for Meizu’s 15th birthday – hence the naming scheme. We’ll keep you updated with the news as it hits the wires. In the meantime, join us in some baseless speculation down in the comments below!
