Meizu 16 launch confirmed for August by company founder

Meizu X8

Meizu’s 15th Anniversary phone just launched in April and we already have confirmation of the Meizu 16 series today. A conversation of Meizu founder Jack Wong (Huang Chang) with a fan turned out to be very interesting when the founder confirmed an August launch of the cutting-edge device. That said, the Meizu founder has previously also said that the Meizu 16 should be expected in August. Do note that the Meizu 16 Pro wasn’t literally a part of the discussion but taking cues from the previous iteration, there should definitely be a Pro variant.

The Meizu 16 will be nothing short of a flagship as it will feature a Snapdragon 845. Again, this much is assured to us from Wong himself. This particular confirmation comes just a day after a massive leak from ITHome revealed all about the upcoming flagship.

Now, coming to leaks, the Meizu 16 and 16 Pro will feature 5.6-inch and 6.1-inch displays respectively. Also, recent design patents hinted at a notch-less OLED display. Below is a live image of the alleged device sourced from Weibo sporting the patented design. The design will be loaded with 3D Press and mEngine.
