Underdogs Meizu have finally unveiled their newest flagship that will take on the Mi 9, Honor View 20, and Huawei P30. The device features a slew of competitive hardware feature while being priced appropriately. There's also the fact that it eschews the notch and punch-hole in favor of incredibly slim bezels.

After months of rumors and teasers, Meizu has finally unveiled its latest device, the Meizu 16s. The 16s is a direct successor to the Meizu 16 that was launched last year, a device we were quite fond of. The 16s manages to build on the solid foundation laid by the Meizu 15 and 16 before it.

The 16s features a 6.2-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display made by Samsung. There's a fingerprint reader baked into the display. The screen to body ratio clocks in at a whopping 91.53%, which is even more impressive considering the fact that there is no notch or punch-hole, a design choice that also made us so pleased with the Meizu 16 last year.

Be like Meizu, you OEMs.

At the top of the display is a 20 MP selfie shooter with HDR+ and portrait mode. At the back is a dual camera setup—perhaps a tad underwhelming in a world of deca-camera systems. There's a 48 MP Sony IMX586 sensor with an f/1.7 aperture and OIS, and a 20 MP ultra-wide angle lens with f/2.6 aperture. There's also a new Super Night View mode that combines eight images into one for improved low-light photography.

Powering the Meizu 16s is a Snapdragon 855. There's a 3600 mAh unit, with  Meizu's 24 W mCharge fast charging support. The 16s, of course, runs on the Android Pie-based Flyme 7.3.

The 16s comes in two flavors: 6/128 GB, and 8/256 GB. The former will set buyers back about US$475, while the latter will cost US$595.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
