Meizu 16s Pro Specification, Features, Price and Availability

Meizu is the latest phone maker to release a Pro version in its lineup with the recently announced Meizu 16s Pro. The new phone is an improved version of the Meizu 16s that was released way back in April this year. The main difference comes under the hood with the Snapdragon 855+ chipset and around the back with the new triple camera setup.

Meizu 16s Pro Features

The Meizu 16s Pro comes with the same 6.2 inch FHD+ AMOLED panel which now features a 160Hz touch sampling rate and the same sleek symmetrical top and bottom bezels from the Meizu 16s. The manufacturer claims they improved the in-display fingerprint sensor which is now capable of unlocking the phone in 0.15 seconds. The selfie camera is a 20MP f/2.0 sensor just like that of the 16s.

At the rear, we now have a third 16MP f/2.2 ultrawide lens which goes alongside the primary 48MP f/1.7 optically stabilized Sony IMX 586 and the 20MP f/2.6 telephoto shooter. The new 16MP camera is surrounded by an LED ring flash. The 16s Pro is capable of recording 4K at 60fps and comes with the smart right scene optimization as well as portrait mode, HDR and scene recognition capabilities.

Under the hood, the Meizu 16s Pro packs the new Snapdragon 855+ chipset paired with 6GB or 8GB RAM and up to 256GB UFS 3.0 storage. The battery has the same 3600mAH capacity as the 16s with support for 24W fast charging.

On the software front, the 16s Pro runs on Meizu’s Flyme 8 OS based on Android 9 Pie. The latest iteration of Meizu’s custom skin is a more polished and simplified version of its previous offerings with a flatter design and more rounded icons. There’s new live wallpapers, ringtones, and system sounds. Other additions include One Mind 3.5 system optimizer, Game Mode 4.0 and the new AR emojis and Aicy voice assistant.
