Meizu just started its second innings in India with the launch of its flagship device, called Meizu 16th. The handset had launched in China in August, and now there’s already talk of its successor, dubbed Meizu 16s. After the unveiling of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform, it was natural for Meizu fans to ask the obvious question – Will the Meizu 16s boast a Snapdragon 855 SoC. Well, J. Wong, the company’s CEO has answered the question on the forums, and has also revealed some juicy details about the upcoming flagship smartphone.

Wong, also known as Huang Zhang, said in reply to a question from a fan that the Meizu 16s will have Qualcomm‘s latest chipset, reported sources in the Chinese media. He also said that even with the inclusion of the flagship chipset, the Meizu 16s will skip on the latest ultra-sonic fingerprint reader from Qualcomm because it requires an OLED panel. It is worth noting that the Meizu 16th does come with an on-screen fingerprint reader, but it is not an ultrasonic one.

Wong further said that an IMX580 sensor is likely to be used in the camera module. He did not say whether there will be a triple-camera setup, and neither denied it. However, busting some rumors, the CEO said that the Meizu 16s will not come with a punch-hole camera design that is currently the buzz in the rumor mills. The Meizu chief had previously stated that an in-screen camera isn’t the best solution to a full-screen design. The new comment seals it, and we could probably see Meizu continue the design language it introduced with the Meizu 16th.

Alleged leaked renders of the Meizu 16s had surfaced a week back showing a full-screen design, and without an in-screen camera. That does leave question marks on the front camera, but these were merely sketches and could turn out to be simply concept designs. The render also revealed a triple-camera setup. There isn’t any info about the launch of the handset but since the Meizu 16th was announced in August, we could have to wait a bit before we see the launch teaser.
