Touted as the "world's first holeless phone", the recently launched Meizu Zero is now available for pre-ordering via crowdfunding platform Indiegogo.

Priced at $1,299, the flagship phone has no visible ports, buttons, or holes but works just fine - thanks to the implementation of several new-age technologies.

Notably, Meizu will start shipping the handset by April 2019.

"Holeless"

Meizu Zero: Display houses fingerprint scanner, doubles up as speakers

Resembling Galaxy S9, the Meizu Zero has slim top and bottom bezels with curved sides, ceramic body, and IP68-rated water-and-dust resistance.

The 5.99-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display houses a fingerprint sensor, so you don't need physical scanners.

Moreover, the screen uses Meizu's "mSound 2.0" technology that allows it to double up as a speaker and earpiece.

The microphones are hidden away in the bottom edge.
