Over the last few weeks, Meizu founder and CEO Jack Wong has revealed a lot about the upcoming Meizu 16 smartphone, and it doesn’t look like he is going to stop. Now, in another post, the Meizu CEO states that the flagship smartphone will continue to carry the 3.5 mm headphone jack, alongside all the high-end features he has mentioned before.
Many manufacturers have already ditched the 3.5 mm headphone jack on their flagship smartphones, in order to make space for other internals. However, through a post made on My Drivers, the Meizu CEO stated that the Meizu 16 will not be joining that bandwagon. However, he does mention the company taking that route with other smartphones in the future.
Based on all the things Jack has revealed so far, Meizu is planning to launch two flagship smartphones, dubbed as the Meizu 16 and the Meizu 16 Plus. The former is suggested to be powered by the Snapdragon 710 SoC, while the latter will be packing in the Snapdragon 845 SoC. The smartphones are also expected to come with 6GB and 8GB of RAM respectively, with storage options of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.
