Recently, on September 19, Meizu held a new product launch conference and announced a few new devices, including the much anticipated Meizu 16X. At the same event, the company also revealed the new color variant of the original Meizu 16/16 Plus – Aurora Blue. Today, we learned this new phone will go on sale tomorrow, on September 26 at a starting price of 2798 yuan ($407). This is for the original model, while the Meizu 16 Plus Aurora blue costs 3298 yuan ($480). As you see, it is 100 yuan more than the other colors.
However, there is a reason why it is expensive at 100 yuan. According to the Meizu official, the Aurora Blue Edition of the Meizu 16/16 Plus uses the industry-leading photoelectric sputtering process to plate the pre-set color onto the glass and reflect it through the light. It produces a radiance effect. Compared to the glass film process, the Meizu 16 Aurora Blue adds 300% to the cost of coloring.
Though the Meizu 16/16 Plus Aurora Blue looks quite different when comparing to the regular variants, the configuration remains the same.
As you remember, the Meizu 16 and the Meizu 16 Plus are equipped with a Snapdragon 845 processor, stored in 6GB/8GB versions. The screen size is 6.0 inches / 6.5 inches, using a non-bangs full-screen design, screen fingerprints, and a screen ratio of 91.18%. The body is thin of 7.3mm only. On the back, they carry a 12MP + 20MP dual-camera, equipped with a Sony IMX380 sensor, while on the front, they sport a 20MP self-timer lens. The battery capacity is 3010mAh / 3640mAh, and the phones are using a liquid cooling, mEngine touch engine, full-screen gesture interaction, and a quad-curved 3D glass body.
