China-based smartphone maker Meizu claims to have developed a new smartphone that does not have any holes in it. The company says that users opting for the phone will have to make use of e-sim cards in order to be able to make and receive calls.

Meizu official Twitter handle posted, “A truly unibody ceramic experience. Crafted out of gorgeous ceramic, our 3d unibody is the perfect reflection of our passion for design and technology. A wholly (pun-intended) experience that has never felt this good!”

It is to be noted here that Samsung Gear S2 was probably the first consumer device to sport an e-sim. However, it was largely made famous by the entry of e-sim based Apple Watch 3, in the market. So, Meizu hole-less smartphone is definitely not the first consumer durable device to feature the use of e-sim technology.

Other features of the Meizu holeless smartphone

The absence of 3.5 mm jack for headphones in the Meizu hole-less smartphone is also not new. Apple and many other smartphone makers have already launched smartphone with support for only wireless connected earphones in the market. In fact, a lot of new brands in India have already started retailing wireless earbuds in the country.

Similarly, the absence of a charging port is not new at all. Though there may not be a smartphone in the market that only supports wireless charging, the ones that support both wireless and wired charging, are a plenty.

Speaker grills integrated inside the screen are quickly becoming the new trend in the market as well. Several smartphone manufacturers have already shown the latest tech at several events.

However, Meizu is apparently the first smartphone maker to club all these features, in one smartphone!
