Meizu 16X: Rumoured Specifications
Considering the details revealed by the TENAA listing, we are quite sure that the 16X will sport a 6 inch AMOLED display with 1080 × 2160 pixels resolution. Powering the handset might be an octa-core Snapdragon 710 chipset from Qualcomm, manufactured on a 10nm node. The phone is supposed to ship with 6GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal memory. The handset’s TENAA listing had also revealed that the device will not have a microSD card slot, meaning that you will have to live with the 64GB of onboard storage.

In the camera department, Meizu 16X will feature 12MP+2MP dual rear cameras, whereas for selfies and video calling the device could offer a 20MP sensor. Connectivity-wise, the smartphone will come with dual-SIM support, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS+GLONASS, microUSB 2.0 port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Keeping the lights on will be a 3000mAh battery that might have fast charging support.
The smartphone is expected to measure 151.2×73.6×7.5mm in terms of dimensions, and it might weigh 154 grams. As far as the colour options go, it might be available in Matte Black, Ceramic White, and Frosted Gold hues.
