Today, after several leaks, Meizu has finally unveiled its new line-up of flagships composed of Meizu 16 and 16 Plus, which can be surely defined the most impressive devices ever released from the Chinese company. However, they share the same camera department as their predecessors Meizu 15 and 15 Plus launched a few months ago. But this does not mean their camera performance is the same as the previous line-up thanks to an enhanced algorithm and the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform making these devices way better than the previous models.
The first camera samples from Meizu 16 have just been published and they show a stunning photo quality. When light conditions are good, the detail and the sharpness of the photo are very impressive, while in a dark environment the phone still managed to capture a detailed shot with no digital noise. The 4th photo is also showing the potentialities of the fifth-generation beauty algorithm based on artificial intelligence, which can also recognize people’s age, gender, skin quality and more to adjust the photos consequently in order to realize the most beautiful selfies.
Meizu 16 and 16 Plus have a dual camera setup on their rear side. It is composed of a Sony IMX380 sensor and a Sony IMX350. The first has a resolution of 12 MP, a f/1.8 aperture and OIS, with a pixel size of 1.55 um. The secondary sensor is a telephoto lens with a resolution of 20 MP and a f/2.6 aperture, with a pixel size of 1.0 um. Under the cameras, there is a laser autofocus mechanism with a ring flash around which is composed of 6 LEDs. The selfie camera is a single snapper with a 20 MP resolution and a f/2.0 aperture.
