Meizu 16T gaming smartphone confirmed to launch alongside Meizu 16s and 16s Plus this year

“Meizu confirmed that the 16T (Turbo) will feature a different SoC instead of the Snapdragon 855.”

Meizu has announced that it will launch a gaming smartphone, Meizu 16T, along with the Meizu 16s and 16s Plus. The CEO, Jack Wong has confirmed that along with the debut of its flagship Meizu 16s, which will feature the Snapdragon 855 chipset, the company will also introduce the 16T as a gaming-focused smartphone.

Previously, Meizu had named the new gaming smartphone as Meizu 16G where the ‘G’ stands for gaming. But after some netizens pointed out that the ‘G’ can be confused with 16 ‘GB’, the name was revised to 16T where ‘T’ stands for ‘Turbo’.

Coming to the configuration of the upcoming devices, the Meizu 16s and 16s Plus flaunt 6.2-inch and 6.5-inch screens respectively. As stated by Wong, it is confirmed that both these smartphones will feature the Snapdragon 855 chipset.

However, the display size of the Meizu 16T is not revealed yet, but owing to the fact that it will be a gaming-focused smartphone, a larger display could be expected. Furthermore, the display would feature a notch on the top of the slim bezel screen and will be powered by 4,000mAh to 4,500mAh battery capacity. Wong has also confirmed that the 16T would feature a different chipset, which further hints that the smartphone would not be a flagship model unlike the Meizu 16s and 16s Plus. The price of the smartphone will be RMB 2,000-2,500 (~Rs 21,000 to Rs 26,000 approx).

For the appearance of the smartphone, it can be said that Meizu will maintain the classic design of its devices. However, it cannot be considered for certain that this gaming-centric device will sport a trendy look too.
