Meizu recently launched the 15-series smartphones in China to celebrate the company’s 15-year anniversary. Now, Meizu is reportedly working on the successor of the smartphone, and the company CEO Jack Wong has already confirmed that Meizu 16 smartphones will launch in August.
Now, alleged image of Meizu 16 smartphone has been spotted on Chinese microblogging site Weibo, and it has been spotted by GizmoChina. The photo looks similar to the render that was spotted earlier, and it reveals the smartphone design. It comes with thin bezels on the sides, and a full-screen display without any notch.
The earpiece and camera module can be seen above the display, whereas the back houses a vertically placed dual camera module and LED flash. The fingerprint sensor isn’t visible on the front or the back, whereas the lockscreen shows face icon, which means the smartphone will include face unlock feature. Rumors hint at in-display fingerprint sensor too, but we doubt that.

Talking about specifications, the smartphone has been confirmed to be offered in two-variants – Meizu 16 and Meizu 16 Plus, one powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC and other powered by the Snapdragon 710 SoC. The smartphone will also come with up to 8GB of RAM.
Talking about dual-rear camera setup, the Meizu 16 is expected to feature a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 20-megapixel secondary senor. The Meizu 16 Plus, on the other hand, is expected to come with a tripe camera setup comprising of a 12-megapixel sensor along with a second 12-megapixel and the third 20-megapixel sensor. Up front, a 20-megapixel camera for selfies and video calling is likely to be in tow on both the smartphones.
To keep things ticking, the Meizu 16 could come with a 3,080mAh battery with 24W charging (8V/3A), whereas the Meizu 16 Plus could come with a bigger 3,6000mAh battery with faster 32W charging (8V/4A). On the software front, it will feature a Flyme OS skin, but there is no word on whether it will be based on Android Oreo or Android Nougat. We expect more leaks to pour as the launch date draws closer.
