Meizu launches a new triple-camera mid-range phone, the 16Xs
The Meizu 16Xs may provide yet more proof that mid-range smartphones are getting to be more interesting and compelling buys these days. It has a Snapdragon 675 SoC (and not the 712 as previously thought), but also features 6GB of RAM in either 64 or 128GB storage SKUs. It is also the latest sub-premium phone to rock triple cameras.
One of these shooters is a 48MP module, although the others are 5 and 8MP respectively. Meizu claims they function in delivering "Super wide angle" as well as "double super night scene" photography. The phone is run by OneMind 3.0 , which appears to be a usage-optimizing platform incorporating the Flyme full-scene speed-and energy-saving engine and Hyper Gaming optimization. It has a 4000mAh battery, with alleged fast-charging.
The 16Xs' display is AMOLED, and is marketed as being a "custom screen with Germany VDE Blu-ray eye certification". This screen is neither notchless or notch-adverse, but instead simply has super-refined bezels along the lines of those in the 16-line's flagship. The screen also offers an in-display fingerprint sensor with what Meizu calls Super mTouch, with biometric-authenticating speeds of up to 0.2 seconds. This module is also apparently certified for the AliPay and WeChat Pay systems.
The Meizu 16Xs reportedly comes in 4 colors: Knight Black, Atlantis, Coral Orange and Ice Silk White. It will be sold at a price of 1,698 yuan (US$245) for a 64GB storage option, whereas an 128GB model will cost 1,998 yuan ($289). Currently, it is not available to order yet, but Meizu are taking reservations for the 16Xs on its website.
