Gradient hue is fast gaining ground among Chinese OEMs since Huawei released the P20 Pro with a variant having an aurora gradient back. This was soon followed by Lenovo on the Z5 and not too long ago OPPO launched the OPPO R17 with a variant having the gradient colour. Meizu also joined the pack with the launch of the Meizu 16th Aurora Blue gradient colour variant today. Here are some breathtaking pictures of the device released on the company’s official Weibo account.
The Aurora variant glitters based on how the light reflects on the elegant glass back. The gradient transmutes between a light and dark shade of Blue, hence it is called Aurora Blue. The pattern on the fine glass back of the device adds some more beauty to the already elegant Meizu 16th flagship.
The model retains the design features of the Meizu 16th which includes a vertically aligned dual rear camera setup with a ring flash just underneath. The device also has the Meizu logo at the back. The front design isn’t in anyway affected by the new gradient colour. You get a full-screen design with ultra-thin black bezels at the edges. This new colour variant joins the previous two variants of Night black and Mountain White that was announced last month.
The new gradient colour variant is priced at 2798 yuan ($408) for the 6GB+64GB option which is 100 yuan higher than the other colour options. The Meizu 16th Aurora Blue gradient colour is also available in 6GB+128GB memory priced at 2998 Yuans (~$437) and 8GB+256 GB memory option that will sell for 3398 Yuans (~$496). Meizu is yet to disclose details of its availability. Check out some more pictures of the new model from below.
