Meizu mobile officially released the new Meizu 17 series this afternoon. It uses fully balanced design + next-generation engraving plating process. There are 3 colors available for purchase.

Design

The next-generation machine-engraved plating process with more than 20 layers of coating is used to make the back cover feel outstanding.

At the same time, the Meizu 17 brings three colors: loose deep ink, 17-degree gray, and the matte AG fantasy unicorn.
