Earlier today, Meizu capped a press conference in Zhuhai, China, where it released its latest Android skin – Flyme 9. As with other manufacturers, Meizu is opting for a simpler, flatter design called Alive. Design.
From the lock screen, Flyme 9 brings flatter icons and faster unlock animations. The layout is simplified and easier on the eyes. The text of all pages and menus is simplified and uniform. The icon shapes are unified and there is a new 5×6 layout on the home screen. Users also have access to new widgets and can customize the color, text size and thickness of the interface.
Flyme 9 design and features
Meizu also added several new live wallpapers with different shapes and revamped the notification center layout. System volume and media controls now have a larger interface for easier use. Small Window 3.0 mode lets you collapse supported apps for easier one-handed control which can then be hidden in bubbles for later use. The native gallery app has new photo and video editing and playback controls.
There is also a new one-time authorization, automatic analysis of malicious content, and an individual app behavior record that monitors your apps for unusual activity. You also receive notifications of colored icons in the status bar when an app uses your camera, microphone, location, or other personal information.
Flyme 9 closed beta recruiting is now open for Meizu 17 series users and the first closed beta is scheduled for March 5 while the stable release will arrive later in May. The new operating system will also be available for all Meizu 16 series phones later.
Flyme for Watch, which is set to debut on the rumored Meizu Watch, was also detailed at today’s conference. It has your standard map based watch interface. The operating system is designed with fluidity in mind and is supposed to maintain 60 fps in all usage scenarios.
You’ll find the usual range of activity tracking apps, notification support for your social media and messaging apps, as well as a diverse set of watch faces. There are also controls for smart devices, a music player, a remote camera shutter, and Meizu Pay. We expect to hear more from Flyme for Watch tomorrow as well as the Meizu 18 series, so stay tuned for our in-depth coverage.
