Earlier this year, in August, Meizu launched its flagship devices dubbed Meizu 16 and Meizu 16 Plus. Now, the company seems to be all set to launch another flagship smartphone — Meizu 16S. Just like the name, the phone is also expected to feature the same design as the Meizu 16th.
However, a sketched render of the upcoming smartphone has been leaked online, which showcases the features of the phone. The leaked image shows that the phone will come with an in-display fingerprint sensor. This is not surprising given that the Meizu 16-series already features such sensor.
With more and more smartphone manufacturers trying to offer higher screen-to-body ratio, Meizu has also jumped onto the bandwagon. The render of the Meizu 16S shows the phone having a full-screen display with almost no bezels surrounding it. Surprisingly, there’s no notch of any kind on top of the display.
Coming to the back side, the phone features a triple camera setup with sensors lined-up vertically in the top-center position. Below the camera sensor is the usual Meizu’s iconic ring-shaped LED flash. A previous leak of the phone showcased that it will come with a USB Type-C port at the bottom flanked by a speaker grille and a 3.5mm audio jack.
As for the specifications, the smartphone could be powered by Qualcomm’s upcoming flagship chipset — Snapdragon 8150 which is said to have been manufactured using the 7nm design process. The chipset will be coupled with 8GB of RAM. There’s also a possibility that the Chinese company could add support for wireless charging.
Pricing information leak related to the Meizu 16S suggests that the phone could be priced around CNY 3,500 in China, which roughly converts to $504. For comparison, the Meizu 16 is priced at 2,698 Yuan (approximately $388) while the 16 Plus costs 3,198 Yuan, roughly $460.
