The Meizu 16X upper mid-range smartphone is expected to go official in September. Some of the specifications of the smartphone have been already declared by none other than Meizu CEO Jack Wong in the recent weeks. Yesterday, China’s TENAA regulatory body had leaked the images of the alleged Meizu 16X smartphone. Wong has now again shared fresh information on the key specs of the Meizu 16X.
As it can be seen in the above image, Wong has confirmed that the Meizu 16X will be featuring 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of UFS-based MCP storage. He added that because of the strong support from the vendors, the company has increased the configuration of the smartphone without increasing the price. A smartphone featuring 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage is expected to carry an expensive pricing, but since Meizu has managed to control the cost, the 128 GB + 8 GB Meizu 16X edition is likely to arrive with an attractive price tag.
Wong has previously stated that the Meizu 16X will be fueled by Snapdragon 710. Also, it will be borrowing some key features from the Meizu 16th smartphone such as Super AMOLED display, in-display fingerprint scanner and 12-megapixel + 20-megapixel dual camera. The Meizu 16 is packed with a 3,010mAh battery, but the 16X is expected to arrive with a larger battery.
As mentioned above, the Meizu 16X smartphone seems to have appeared on TENAA. In terms of appearance, the Meizu 16X boasts identical symmetrical design as the Meizu 16th smartphone. The front side of the phone is very clear in the above, but it seems to resemble the Meizu 16. At the backside, it features a vertical dual camera setup followed by a ring flash. It is speculated that there will be another variant of the Meizu 16X that will feature 64 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM.
The exact launch date of the Meizu 16X is yet to be declared. The handset is expected to be priced between 2,000 Yuan (~$292) and 2,500 Yuan (~$366).
