Earlier this month, Meizu made its return to the Indian smartphone market with not just one, but three smartphones. The Chinese company launched the flagship Meizu 16th (Rs 39,999), the lower mid-range Meizu M6T (Rs 7,999), and the affordable Meizu C9 (Rs 5,999).

While it’s too early to say how the three smartphones compare against their respective rivals, they do stand out from the crowd as far as the design is concerned. That’s because of none of Meizu’s three new launches have any kind of notch, a controversial design element that just about every third Android smartphone comes with these days.

Apparently, the reason behind the same is Meizu’s founder and CEO Jack Wong, who has been known to be proponent of symmetrical design on smartphone and doesn’t like notches. Now, if a new report is to be believed, the upcoming Meizu 16s, which is the company’s flagship, will also have a symmetrical design. In fact, the same has been ‘confirmed’ by Wong himself.

According to Gizmochina, a fan recently came up with a render for Meizu 16s, and posted it on the company’s official community forum. Somehow, the render caught the attention of the CEO, who confirmed that the actual design of the upcoming Meizu 16s is not very different from that shown in the render. The fan-made render shows a smartphone with minimal bezels on all four sides (with the top bezel being just wide-enough to fit the selfie-camera.

Recently, Jack Wong had also confirmed (again, on the community forums) that Meizu 16s will come with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, which was unveiled just last week.
