The Meizu 16s is here and by the looks of it, it packs a punch.
The phone features a 6.2 inch FHD Super AMOLED display that hosts an in-display fingerprint sensor but that’s not all: the company partnered up with Samsung to deliver a display that can filter out 33% of that pesky blue display light and has DC dimming to help with eye strain.
The selfie camera is a 20MP with HDR+ support and arrives with a redesigned portrait mode, while the back of the phone hosts a dual camera setup with a 48MP OIS Sony main sensor and a secondary 20MP wide shooter.
This new setup allows the Meizu 16s to achieve the Super Night View mode, a night mode that can merge together up to 8 photos into one single, improved photo.
Under the hood, we’ll find a Snapdragon 855 chipset that will come with 6 or 8GB and 128 or 165GB worth of storage. The battery is a 3,600mAh with a 24W mCharger that can juice it up from 0% to 60% in only 30 minutes.
There’s good news for gamers as well: the device has AI optimization which Meizu claims can offer 6 hours of gaming and 14 hours of video streaming. In addition to that, it also features Meizu’s Hyper Gaming mode that offer smoother graphics on limited power. Alongside it, Meizu also added the mEngine 3.0 vibration motor, for that little tactile ‘oomph’.
The phone will be available in Carbon Black, Pearl White and Phantom Blue color options and will have a price tag of $475 for the 6GB + 128GB variant, $520 for the 8GB +256GB one while the top of the line 8GB + 256GB model will cost $595.
Pre-orders have already gone live while the official sales are scheduled for April 28th.
