Meizu 16s features: The secret Android flagship from China

By  Linky Johnson 2019-04-24 1011 0

When you think of Chinese smartphone manufacturers, you can find names like Huawei, Xiaomi or OnePlus. However, there are also smaller manufacturers who manufacture exciting devices and try their hand at international business. One of them is Meizu, once considered a major competitor to Xiaomi. Since last year, the Meizu 15 and 16 have been back in the global market. The 2018-flagship has now been given a successor with the Meizu 16s, which could become an insider tip.


Current hardware

The backing is Qualcomm's current Snapdragon 855, which can be found in Samsung's Galaxy S10, among others. It is complemented from 6 to 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of onboard storage (UFS 2.1). Samsung's AMOLED screen delivers a resolution of 2,232 x 1,080 pixels on a diagonal of 6.2 inches.


The case measures 159 x 73.4 x 7.6 millimeters (165 grams of weight) and consists of the usual aluminum glass combination. In terms of design, you stay true to the predecessor and its rounded corners and the notch-free screen. However, one deviates from the almost complete symmetry of the Meizu 16 and has moved the camera module from the center to the corner.

Improved camera with new night mode

The focus is also on that recording module. The dual-camera system. There is a 48 MP Sony IMX586 sensor, as well as a 20-megapixel IMX350 sensor and Meizu's typically ring-shaped LED flash. Also on board is optical image stabilization, which is also used in 4K video recordings. The front camera (Samsung S3T2) also operates with 20 megapixels and also dominates HDR +. It is designed to provide reliable facial recognition.


An image processing algorithm and an AI from the US company Arcsoft are responsible for optimizing the images. Also integrated was a  "Dual Super Night Mode " for particularly clear night shots. This is also to be submitted by firmware update for numerous models in recent years.

Important frequencies supported

The non-disruptive Inplay fingerprint reader also gets an upgrade. There is also an NFC module that can also be used for contactless numbers. However, you have to say goodbye to the 3.5mm plug for headphones that has been painted. The fast-charging battery grows from 3,010 to 3,600 mAh. However, wireless charging is not supported.


Important for international interested parties: The global version of the mobile phone supports all important 3G and LTE tapes, including band 20. Two SIM cards can still be plugged in. Sound is emitted in stereo – by earbud and over the speaker on the back.


Pre-installed is Android 9 in its own flavor Flyme 7.3, which is based on Apple's iOS. An underlying AI, OneMind 3.0, is designed to help conserve energy and speed up appstarts. The  "Hyper Gaming " mode is designed to provide targeted games with more resources.

Available soon

In China, the Meizu 16s can already be pre-ordered, with shipping due to start on April 28. The variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage costs 3,200 yuan (around 423 euros), the version with 8GB of RAM comes to 3,500 yuan (about 463 euros). The 8/256 GB model reserved for the Chinese market is offered by 4,000 yuan (about 529 euros).


Prices and availability of the global models have not yet been revealed. The Meizu 16 was included in the 8/128 GB variant in the own store for around 440 euros, with no customs costs incurred in the import via England, which was organised by the manufacturer himself.


In addition to the mobile phone, a number of new accessories were also presented. So there is now a new generation of completely wireless Bluetooth teemers  "Pop ." Also in the program you now have Bluetooth earbuds with improved noise cancellation, but with cable connection between the listeners. In addition, you can also introduce a new backpack and a belt.
