On August 8, the Meizu 16 series flagship smartphones were officially released. There were two models in face of the Meizu 16th and the Meizu 16th Plus. Taking into consideration the memory options, there are six versions in total. Today, Meizu Technology announced they all will be launched at 10:00 am (Beijing time) on August 20. Meizu official website shows that after the order is placed, it is expected to be shipped within 4-8 weeks.
By the way, in order to prevent the speculation, each person is limited to one order only one phone. As you know, the booking numbers exceeded the expectations. So the company has had to open a separate page in order to take orders with 200 yuan prepayment. This is the best way to accumulate more financial resources and order more components. Though they exceed the predetermined amount, the company can control the ordering process and provide the units in time. And this is done for the display mainly. But Meizu claims, in the future, the ship date will be decreased. At the same time, if you are not satisfied with the delivery time, you can apply for a refund at any time. It will be processed within 2 working days.
It’s quite reasonable why the Meizu 16 series smartphones have met such a high demand. This is the first genuine flagship with tons of trendy and innovative features launched by the company. The Meizu 16 has a 6.0-inch AMOLED display and the 16 Plus sports a bigger 6.5-inch panel with a bigger 3640mAh battery powering it. Both handsets feature the Snapdragon 845 SoC, so you’re not short on firepower. The Meizu 16, on the other hand, has a 3,010mAh battery. Both handsets come with mCharge that tops up the phone to 67% in 30 minutes. Both have the same 12MP + 20MP dual rear camera and the 20MP selfie shooter. Meizu focused on the rear camera a lot saying the IMX380 CMOS (12MP) used is the best in the range, even compared to the IMX519 & IMX363. One of the two models also has OIS but Meizu didn’t specify which one has it.
At last, the Meizu 16 6GB+64GB version is priced at 2698 yuan ($392), the 6GB+128GB version costs 2998 yuan ($436), the 8GB+128GB version costs 3298 yuan ($479), while the Meizu 16 Plus 6GB+128GB version is available at 3198 yuan ($465), the 8GB+128GB version costs 3498 yuan ($508), the 8GB+256GB version is sold at 3998 yuan ($581).
