The Meizu 16 series flagship will be officially released on August 8. As the launch date is getting closer, it’s reasonable to see and hear more and more news concerning the first real flagship of the company. As for today, the phone appeared on GeekBench.
According to the GeekBench screenshot, the Meizu 16 will be packed with a Snapdragon 845. That’s why it scores 2289 and 8865 in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. This is a common result for smartphones sporting an SND845.
At the same time, the screenshot reveals the phone will be equipped with a 6GB of RAM. But we know there will be another model featuring an 8GB of RAM. As you remember, this information was disclosed by Huang Zhang, the founder of Meizu Technology.
At present, the Meizu 16 has passed the TENAA certification, and we are familiar with its key features. According to the TENAA document, the Meizu 16 sports a 6.0-inch 18:9 AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2160×1080. Apart from the SND845 version, there will be the Snapdragon 710 variant like the Xiaomi Mi 8 and the VIVO NEX. It will be packed with a battery of 3010mAh capacity, while the SND845-powered version will come with a 3640mAh battery. Both models will support an on-screen fingerprint recognition.
At last, today, Huang Zhang was asked how much the Meizu 16 will cost. And he answered: “I have already reduced the company and channel gross margin to the minimum. But if you won’t be satisfied with its pricing, choose the X8.” Previously, Mei Zhang revealed the Meizu 16 would be the best-priced Snapdragon 845 model. He even said it will be priced almost identical to the Xiaomi Mi 8. Many netizens are sure the lower version of the Meizu 16 will cost less than 2000 yuan ($293).
