Following the launch of its vanilla version back in April this year, the Chinese phone maker has finally unveil the Meizu 16s Pro today.
Meizu 16s Pro
Overall, the The Meizu 16s Pro is an incremental update to the Meizu 16s which was released back in April. The main differences come under the hood with the Snapdragon 855+ chipset and around the back with the new triple camera setup.
At the front, we have the same 6.2-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel which now features a 160Hz touch sampling rate and the same sleek symmetrical top and bottom bezels from the 16s. Meizu claims they improved the in-display fingerprint sensor which is now capable of unlocking the phone in 0.15 seconds. The selfie cam features a 20MP F/2.0 sensor just like the 16s.
Around the back we now have a third 16 MP F/2.2 ultrawide lens to go alongside the primary 48MP F/1.7 optically stabilized Sony IMX 586 and the 20MP F/2.6 telephoto shooter. The new 16MP sensor is surrounded by an LED ring flash. The phone is capable of recording 4K at 60fps and comes with smart night scene optimizations as well as portrait mode, HDR and scene recognition capabilities.
The Pro version is powered by the new Snapdragon 855+ SoC paired with 6 or 8 GB RAM and up to 256 GB UFS 3.0 storage. The battery features the same 3,600 mAh capacity as the 16s with support for 24W fast charging.
New Flyme OS
On the software side we have Meizu’s new Flyme 8 OS based on Android 9 Pie. The latest iteration of Meizu’s custom skin is a more polished and simplified version of its previous offerings with a flatter design and more rounded icons. There’s new live wallpapers, ringtones, and system sounds.
Other additions include One Mind 3.5 system optimizer, Game Mode 4.0 and the new AR emojis and Aicy voice assistant.
