Meizu has recently launched the Meizu 15, Meizu 15 Plus and Meizu M15 (aka Meizu 15 Lite) smartphones to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the company. In the previous month, Meizu’s founder Huang Zhang had claimed that the company will be debuting the Meizu 16 series around August this year. Zhang is said to be himself overseeing the manufacturing of the Meizu 16 series. Today, fresh photos showing the rear shell of the alleged Meizu 16 have appeared on Weibo.
The leaked photos reveal that Meizu 16 will continue to sport metallic chassis like the Meizu 15. The rear shell images also show that it will be featuring a vertical dual camera setup followed by a ring flash like the predecessor phone. It appears that Meizu 15’s successor may not arrive with major changes in the design for the back panel.
Zhang had also claimed in the last month that the Meizu 16 will be futuristic device. Meizu has already launched Meizu 6S and Meizu E3 phones with full screen. Also, Meizu’s recent filing has revealed that its future phone may sport a full screen design (shown below) like Samsung’s Infinity Display.
The source claims that Meizu will be testing the Meizu 16 series starting from this month. This could be true as the successor of Meizu 15 series are slated to go official around August this year.
Apart from Meizu 16 series, the Chinese manufacturer is also rumored to be working on a flagship phone called Meizu X2. The handset is expected to feature Snapdragon 845 chipset and is likely to hit the market with a pricing of 2,999 Yuan (~$471). The Meizu X2 is expected to debut by the end of 2018.
