It is quite funny of company CEOs and executives to leak out their confidential details and products unexpectedly, and it has become a trend nowadays. A couple of days ago, Xiaomi CEO posted the retail box of Xiaomi Mi Max 3 smartphone online, which later posted by other executives too. Today, CEO of Meizu, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Jack Wong posted an image of their upcoming Meizu 16 flagship smartphone, which lit up hot discussions on the internet. This is one of the first detailed looks towards the smartphones’ bezel and design.
The image posted shows a simple comparison of its bezel thickness with some other smartphone. It only shows the bottom portion of the smartphone, including a key feature that it will carry – an in-screen fingerprint scanner. The technology was initially pushed by the Chinese rival Vivo, and now it seems other manufacturers also imitates the same. The Meizu 16 apparently has the fingerprint scanner under the screen, exactly where the Vivo placed it. It is not sure if the company is planning to deploy such display – Super AMOLED panels. Also, the bezels are too narrow to compare. The bottom bezel is a little thickened, but justifiably smaller. The side borders are very narrow. Looks beautiful.
Apart from the leak by the CEO itself, another rendered image popped up several minutes ago. It has the complete front panel design aspect the smartphone might carry. But, there is no mention of the fingerprint scanner. The bottom and side bezels are almost similar in both real and render images.
The smartphone will have an 18:9 display with no notch. Under the hood, the company would provide with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 Chipset along with 6GB RAM and up to 128GB Internal storage. The price tag of the Meizu 16 will stay within CNY 3300.
