The Meizu 15 and 15 Plus devices were released a few months ago, in commemoration of the company’s 15-year anniversary. Apparently, the devices have been successful enough that the company has decided to build it into a new premium line of devices. Not that we’re complaining, of course—the Meizu 15 was a brilliant smartphone in many aspects.

Going by word on the grapevine, Meizu will release a lineup of Meizu 16 devices in August. It’s supposed to be a duo, in the form of a Meizu 16 and Meizu 16 Plus. There was a 15 Lite, but it would seem the company plans on skipping the mid-range offering this time out. 

Meizu CEO Jack Wong has apparently also confirmed that the devices will be powered by Snapdragon chipsets. The more expensive one could opt for an SD845, while the cheaper model could go the way of the SD710. The Meizu 15 and 15 Plus featured the Snapdragon 660 and Exynos 8895 respectively, so this is a step up. It’s really just nice to see Meizu embrace Qualcomm’s offerings.

Not much else is known—that isn’t completely baseless conjecture—but prices are expected to start around US$470, and peak at US$620, which is impressive for a flagship. There's also word that the devices could come with in-display fingerprint readers.

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.
