Meizu has apologized for the delays in delivery of the new Meizu 16 line-up to its customers, but in the meantime, it seems that the company is planning to offer a better availability for its upcoming upper midranger Meizu 16X. This handset which is more focused on quality-price ratio will be officially announced on September 19, but the company has already opened reservations. You can reserve your unit of the device on the official store Meizu Mall as well as other important Chinese stores such as Jingdong Mall and more.
Sadly, the price tag of the upcoming device is still unknown, but if we base on the previous 16 line-up, it should range between 2000 and 2500 Yuan, that is equivalent to the price range from $292 to $365. Meizu 16X will differ from the vanilla Meizu 16 for its design and performance. Indeed, it should come with cheaper materials and under the hood, there will not be the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. Instead, we will probably find the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC paired with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal storage depending on the configuration you will choose to buy.
On the other hand, there will be exactly the same rear cameras as the standard 16th, so you will get flagship-like camera performance. There will be a dual rear camera with ArcSoft technology composed of a Sony IMX380 sensor with a 20 MP resolution and a Sony IMX350 with a 12 MP resolution. According to the company’s CEO Jack Wong, there will also be optical stabilization. At last, there should be a 6-inch display with the AMOLED technology and a 3100 mAh battery.
