We’re massive fans of the Meizu 16 devices and the company has something even more interesting in the works. The Meizu 16X is billed to be a slightly less powerful version of the Meizu 16, while being offered with a mid-range price tag.

While companies like Xiaomi, HMD, and Honor have been some of the most lauded OEMs in the market this year, Meizu has been a favorite of ours. The company made up for its mistakes of 2017 by releasing a steady stream of impressive devices, in the forms of the Meizu M6s, Meizu E3, and Meizu 16 flagships, and it will attempt to continue that good work in the coming months with the launch of yet another device, the Meizu 16X.

If the name wasn’t any indication, the 16X will be a cheaper variant of the Meizu 16 that was released last month—a device we were very much thrilled to see. According to Meizu CEO Jack Wong’s Weibo posts, the device will keep all the features of the Meizu 16, with one exception: SoC.  The 16X is said to trade the Snapdragon 845 on its more premium siblings for the sub-premium Snapdragon 710. The Snapdragon 710 is a capable processor, in any case, so we’re not complaining.

An appearance on TENAA a few days ago and information from other sources have given us a clear idea of the 16X's specifications sheet:

It will sport a 6-inch FHD+ AMOLED display, 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a Snapdragon 710, a 12 MP (Sony IMX380, f/1.8, OIS) + 20 MP (Sony IMX350, f/2.6, telephoto) dual rear camera setup, a 20 MP (f/2.0) selfie camera, an in-display fingerprint sensor, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 3010 mAh battery.

It's confirmed to be launched sometime this month.
