Earlier in the week, Meizu finally launched its new sub-premium phone, the Meizu 16X. We’ve been fans of the company’s releases this year and feel they just may not be getting the attention they deserve for their work in releasing impressive pieces of hardware at attractive price points. The 16X carries on that trend in fine form, as it boasts of an impressive specifications sheet.

The Meizu 16X features a 6-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED notch-less display. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 710, which appears to be the only difference between it and its more expensive Snapdragon 845-powered Meizu 16 and 16 Plus siblings. It features 6 GB of RAM, and comes in two models: One with 64 GB of storage and the other with 128 GB. 

Camera-wise, the 16X is just as much of a heavy-hitter as its pricier siblings. It sports a 12 MP (f/1.8) + 20 MP (3X optical zoom, f/2.6) dual rear camera setup, with the primary 12 MP sensor boasting of 4-axis OIS. At the front of the device sits a big 20 MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture.

The 16X is powered by a 3100 mAh battery, chargeable via a Type-C port with Meizu’s 24W mCharge keeping things quick. 

The 64 GB Meizu 16X comes with a price tag that translates to about US$310, while the 128 GB has an MSRP of about US$350, both of which are excellent prices for devices that compete with the very best in that class.

Do note that, while we're fans of Meizu's hardware, we do have our issues with the company's software. You may want to have a closer look at the company's software experience before making a purchase decision.

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.
