Meizu Zero is The Un-Holeyest of Smartphones

All manner of devices land on Indiegogo looking for money. Smartphone maker Meizu has tossed a very cool smartphone on the funding generator called the Meizu Zero. Zero stands for the number of holes the smartphone has. That’s right none. There is no mic hole, no speaker hole, no camera hole, no holes for charging, no holes for buttons, and no holes for headphones: Zero, zilch, nada.

The holeless nature of the ceramic-bodied phone makes it very minimalist and attractive, and Meizu says it helps the IP68 water and dust resistance rating to boot. The phone uses wireless USB 3.0 connectivity so it can sync and transfer data to and from a computer. It charges using 18W Super mCharge wireless technology.

The entire front OLED screen acts as a speaker, and it has an under-screen fingerprint reader. The unibody is made of ceramic; overall it’s got a pretty awesome, minimal look to it.

The crowdfunding campaign for the Meizu Zero is seeking $100,000 and has raised about a quarter of that with 30 days to go. You can order one of the “Exclusive Engineer Units” with delivery estimated for April for $1,299. That is a… hole… lot of money.
