Meizu M16th with Snapdragon 845 launched along with entry-level Meizu C9 and Meizu M6T in India

In what can be called as a revival of the Chinese brand in India, Meizu has launched three smartphones, Meizu C9, Meizu M6T and the Meizu M16th. The Meizu C9 and the Meizu M6T fall under the budget segment, while the Meizu M16th is company’s flagship device with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and a water cooling system. All the three phones will be available exclusively via Amazon.in and the company has also partnered with Reliance Jio to sell the Meizu C9 smartphone across Jio stores.

“Our industry is trapped in this mad rush of specs vs price, and a commoditised hardware game. Brands have forgone a key consumer need of the smartphone being a personal device, and not just a functional handset. The fact that a personal device is also a projection of the self and design plus craftsmanship is a key element of the equation has been compromised. While we will offer great features at competitive price points, we want consumers to start identifying us as a brand who appeals to their own sense of style,” Ramashish Ray, CEO and Country Head, Meizu India, said in a statement.

Meizu M16TH specifications and features

Meizu M16TH is the company’s flagship smartphone, which comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The device will be available on Amazon at an introductory price of Rs 39,999, pitting it against the recently-launched OnePlus 6T. Meizu claims that the M16th has world’s thinnest bezels measuring 1.43mm and has the screen to display ratio of almost 90 percent. As mentioned above, the device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and comes with a water cooling system that is said to keep the device's internal temperature in check.

The phone packs a 3,010mAh battery, sports an in-display fingerprint sensor and runs on the Flyme user interface, which is based on Android 8.0 Oreo. In the camera department, the M16th features a combination of a 12MP + 20MP imaging sensors on the back.

The camera setup on the handset includes a dual-camera setup with 13MP + 2MP (Sony IMX278 RGBW four-color sensor) configuration on the back. Meizu claims that apart from the multi-frame noise reduction technology, the device's camera preserves dark details on the software level, enhancing the low-light photo experience. There is an 8MP selfie camera on the front and the handset is backed by a 3,300 mAh battery. The M6T will be available in two colours: Black and Rose Gold.
