If you pre-ordered the Meizu 16 (or Meizu 16 Plus) from the official Meizu store, there is a chance you must have received a mail from the manufacturer. The mail is actually an official apology from the manufacturer.
The apology is for a delay in the delivery of all Meizu 16 (and 16 Plus) orders. According to Meizu, they underestimated the popularity of both phones hence the need to have to delay shipment. The duration of the delay ranges from one week to four weeks depending on the model and configuration.
Those who ordered the 6GB RAM + 64GB model of the Meizu 16 in black or white will have to wait an extra week. Those who ordered the 6GB RAM + 128GB white version will have to wait for an extra two to three weeks.
For those who ordered the white Meizu 16 Plus with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, they have to wait for an extra two to four weeks. Lastly, orders made for the white Meizu 16 Plus 8GB RAM + 128GB will be delayed by between one to four weeks.
Meizu says those who wish to get a refund can apply for one and they will ensure it is paid within two working days.
