Meizu 16T: Snapdragon 855, Triple Photo Sensor and 4500 mAh at 250
Meizu today introduced the Meizu 16T, a remarkable smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 855 for only 250 euros in China.
Everything for the screen
Meizu still does not give in to the notch fashion and its design largely echoes that of the 16 series.
On the front is a 6.5-inch Samsung Super Amoled Full HD symmetrical display at 18.6:9. With a fingerprint reader under the screen promising to unlock in 0.15s.
The 16T is powered by the powerful Snapdragon 855 backed by the Adreno 640. It also incorporates 6 or 8GB of RAM depending on the configuration. In terms of storage, the 2 configurations available are 128 or 256GB of storage in UFS 3.0 for ultra-fluid navigation.
The multimedia experience is getting a makeover as the 16T reconnects with the Jack 3.5mm port. It also retains the mEngine haptic engine and the double stereo speaker. To support this, the manufacturer has chosen to incorporate a large battery of 4500 mAh. Set holding in an 8.3mm case for 183g
Camera: A triple ultra-wide angle sensor
On the upper left flank of its glass back is a 12MP triple wide-angle photo sensor (Sony IMX362 – f/1.9) – 8MP (Samsung Wide Angle 4H7 – f/2.2) and 5MP (Samsung 4H7 – 2.2). Meizu promises ever more detailed and ever brighter shots. We also note the arrival of the 4k recording in 60 FPS long awaited among Flyme users. On the front, there is a 16MP Samsung 3T2 selfie camera which is also the smallest smartphone camera on the market.
Price and availability
Meizu has decided to strike a big blow since the starting price in China is 1999 Yuan or 253 euros for the 6-128GB configuration. Making the Meizu 16T the smartphone with the cheapest Snapdragon 855 on the market.
Unfortunately an international version does not seem planned for this phone although we remain waiting for an official announcement has been made. On the other hand, on the positive side the Chinese version incorporates all European 4G frequency bands (excluding B28) which does not compromise international marketing.
