Meizu 16 series will be officially released on August 8 but it has already started to surprise us. Yesterday, the company released the first camera sample shot from the upcoming Meizu 16 by the popular director Lu Chuan. Even though the photo was captured in low-light conditions, the details are very accurate and there is no digital noise! According to Lu Chuan, thanks to the Pro mode of the stock camera app found on the phone, it is possible to adjust the shutter speed, the ISO, and the exposure; he thinks the final result is quite good.
In the meantime, Meizu 16 has also crossed one million reservations according to a poster published by the company. We guess that the number is the sum of all the reservations on the web as only 220,000 reservations were spotted on the famous Chinese online store Jingdong. Anyways, it remains a warm response from the public. The Meizu 16 series which will be unveiled on August 8 will include three devices: 16, 16 Plus and Meizu X8. The first two will sport an octa-core Snapdragon 845 SoC by Qualcomm running at a frequency of 2.8 GHz and paired with up to 8 GB of RAM. So, they will be the first phones by Meizu with a flagship chipset released by Qualcomm.
Both the devices will sport an AMOLED display, but the sizes will probably be different: 6 inches on the standard edition and 6.5 inches on the Plus variant. On the rear side, there will be a dual camera: it should be the same setup as the Meizu 15, but thanks to the Snapdragon 845 platform it should deliver a better performance. There should also be a big 3640 mAh battery on the Plus version. The Meizu X8 will be a rival of the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE with upper-midrange specs, including the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset.
