Chinese phonemaker MEIZU has added a new smartphone called MEIZU 16Xs to its lineup. The handset is a slightly watered down model of the MEIZU 16X that was launched last year in the country. The MEIZU 16Xs is the new Android-powered mid-range offering from the brand. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 series SoC, sports a notch-less display, triple rear cameras, and a beefy battery.

The MEIZU 16Xs price in China is set at RMB 1,698 (~Rs 17,150) for the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant. The high-end 6GB RAM + 128GB storage option has been priced at RMB 1,998 (~Rs 20,180). Interested buyers will be able to buy the handset in Midnight Black, Blue, Coral Orange, and Silk White colour options from June 10th in China.
The company has also announced Type-C earphones called MEIZU EP2C Type-C alongside the phone in the country. The headset comes at a sticker price of RMB 129 (~Rs 1,300), but can be purchased with MEIZU 16Xs at a special price of RMB 99 (~Rs 999).
MEIZU 16Xs specifications
Coming to the specifications, the MEIZU 16Xs features a 6.2-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display that bears in-display fingerprint sensor and a screen-to-body ratio of 90.29 percent. The panel doesn’t sport a notch, cut-out, or hole-punch; instead, it has visibly thin bezels with the front camera and earpiece placed up top. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC is behind the wheels, accompanied by 6GB of RAM and 64GB/ 128GB onboard storage.
In the camera department, the 16Xs sports a combination of 48-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor (f/1.7) + 8-megapixel 118-degree ultra-wide angle lens with f/2.2 aperture + 5-megapixel f/1.9 aperture lens on the rear. The front camera sports a 16-megapixel shooter with f/2.2 aperture lens for selfie and video calling. The phone boots Android 9 Pie with Flyme OS 7 out of the box to take care of the software side of things. A 4,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support fuels the handset. Connectivity options include dual 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB Type-C charging port that doubles up as audio jack.
