Meizu 16 series of smartphones are scheduled to launch in August. The company’s founder Jack Wong not only confirmed that, but also hinted that the phones will be coming with high-end features, including a triple-rear camera setup and 3D press support on touchscreens. Now a new rumor has surfaced online suggesting that the Meizu 16 will support an in-display fingerprint sensor as well.

According to gizmochina, the high-end variant of the Meizu 16 is expected to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor, similar to the new Vivo Nex. It also suggests that there will be a lower-end variant of the smartphone, which will come with the new Snapdragon 710 SoC.  Based on other rumors, the Meizu 16 and the Meizu 16 Plus are expected to feature 5.6-inch and 6.1-inch notch-less OLED screens with support for 3D Press and mEngine.

Under the hood, Meizu 16 will be packing a 3,080mAh battery, while the Meizu 16 Plus is said to come with a bigger 3,600mAh battery, which will also support fast charging. The Android version isn’t specified yet, but the phones will come preloaded with Flyme 7.5.

For photography, the Meizu 16 is likely to feature a dual-rear camera setup, consisting of a 20-megapixel sensor, tagged alongside a 12-megapixel sensor. The Meizu 16 Plus is touted to be coming with a triple camera setup at the back with dual 12-megapixel sensors and a 24-megapixel sensor. According to AndroidHealines, it will be equipped with a four-axis optical image stabilization, which should drastically improve sharpness and image quality in low-light situations.
