(Latest) Meizu 16S Pro Smartphone Hands-on Unboxing: Compare with Meizu 16S

ByJoe Horner 2019-08-31 4087

Among the phone manufacturers, Meizu is very special. In the face of today's fierce market competition, it is difficult to find a brand that adheres to its own ideas, whether it is a design or a system application. In April, Meizu released its first-half flagship Meizu 16s, which has shown high standards in many ways, including vibration feedback, speakers and feel. More than four months later, they brought Meizu 16s Pro. As an upgrade of 16s, the new product further complements the hardware configuration and functional applications on the basis of retaining the advantages of the previous generation. At the same time, it is equipped with a brand-new Flyme8 operating system. Let's take a look.

Meizu 16S Pro 

Symmetrical design, faster screen fingerprint unlock

Meizu 16s Pro is still equipped with a 6.2-inch 18.6-9 AMOLED screen, 2232 x 1080 resolution, 403ppi, brightness of 430Nit, support DC dimming, specifications and parameters are consistent with the previous 16s, with a good display effect.

It also continues the charismatic up-and-down symmetrical non-special-shaped structure of the comprehensive screen scheme, compared to the more common water drop screen or hole-digging screen phones on the market, although it has customized a very small front-facing camera. But the width of the upper border is still difficult to receive narrow enough.

However, Meizu 16s Pro positive visual effect is still good, will look more comfortable. At the same time, because there are not many products with similar designs, which makes it well recognized, you can tell at a glance that this is a phone from Meizu.

A more obvious improvement on the front is the screen fingerprint. This time, Meizu 16s Pro uses the Goodix third generation off-screen fingerprint scheme. According to the data given by Meizu at the press conference, its fingerprint recognition speed is 25% faster than Meizu 16s, and the actual unlock speed is close to the iQOO Pro 5G version.

Meizu 16s Pro’ hand feeling is the best performance of all the mobile phones I have come into contact with recently. Its fuselage BWH is 151.9x73.4x7.65mm, weighs only 166g, is very light, and has done some Radian treatment on its back. It's very comfortable to hold it in your hand.

In terms of fuselage color matching, the Meizu 16s Pro offers a total of four options, in addition to the version of the black mirror we have in hand, as well as three colors: White Tale, Dream Unicorn and Twilight Forest. One of the more special is the Dream Unicorn and Twilight Forest version, the former is gradual, the visual effect is similar to Xiaomi CC9, and the latter is the popular green.

48 million lead shot, new 16 million ultra wide angle lens

In terms of selfies, Meizu 16s Pro is keep the same with Meizu 16s, is still equipped with a 2000 megapixel front-facing camera with f2.2 aperture, supporting AI beauty selfies and face unlock functions.

The obvious improvement is the part of the rear camera. Specifically, its rear camera consists of three cameras, including a 4800 megapixel main camera (Sony IMX586, f/1.7 aperture) and a 2000 megapixel telephoto lens (Sony IMX350, F/2.6 aperture) and 1600 megapixel ultra-wide angle lens (Sony IMX481,f/2.2 aperture).

Meizu 16S Pro 

In addition to changing the rear camera to three shots, Meizu 16s Pro flash has also been redesigned. This time it skillfully combines the flash and the ultra-wide-angle lens, so that the overall layout of the rear camera is consistent with the MEIZU 16s, and the increase in the number of lenses does not affect the integrity of the back of the fuselage.

The following is a sample sheet, without any post-processing, let's take a look at it.

Snapdragon 855 Plus,UFS3.0 flash memory

In terms of core hardware configuration, Meizu 16s Pro brings Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 855 Plus platform. In the part of performance test, its AnTUTU running score is 461176, Master Lu's score is 350169, Geekbench4 single-core 3644 points, multi-core 10522 points, can run smoothly more popular large-scale mobile phone games.

Meizu 16S Pro 

It is worth mentioning that the previous 16s on the acclaimed mEngine tactile engine has been retained on the 16s Pro, with bilinear speakers, can bring a very good gaming experience.

In addition, it also uses UFS3.0 flash memory, which has a very significant improvement in reading speed compared to UFS2.1,. In terms of storage specifications, the new product provides three options: 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB.

As for the more concerned part of the battery life, Meizu 16s Pro and 16s, the same battery capacity of 3600mAh, standard 24W fast charge head. In terms of battery capacity, such data is not excellent, but it is acceptable

New Flyme 8

In addition to Meizu 16s Pro,Flyme 8 is also a point of concern.

As the biggest upgrade to date for Flyme, Including new visual design concept, Aicy assistant, night mode, game mode 4.0, super night view 2.0, small window mode 2.0, wonderful AR, health and security guard and OneMind 3.5. Many improvements have been made in its functional application.

Now that the Flyme 8 internal version has been opened to apply, the official version will be pushed in batches in November and December.

For specific models that support Flyme 8, you can refer to the following:

●November official version:


MEIZU 16th

MEIZU 16th Plus



MEIZU 15 Plus

MEIZU PRO 7 (high-end version)


Meilan Note6

●December official version:



MEIZU PRO 7 (standard version)









MEILAN E3/S6/6/Note5/Max/E

Meizu 16S Pro​ 


As the flagship aircraft of Meizu in the second half of this year, compared with the previous 16s, the upgrade of Meizu 16s Pro is mainly reflected in the core hardware configuration and the shooting ability of the rear camera.

The introduction of Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus platform, coupled with the new UFS3.0 flash memory, allows it to perform well enough to compete with its peers.

At the same time, the 4800 main camera + 2000 million telephoto lens + 1600 megapixel wide-angle lens can well meet the needs of photography and short video shooting.

In addition to the above, the excellent feel and the new Flyme 8 are also the addition of Meizu 16s Pro.

At present, the possible regret of Meizu 16s Pro is that its battery capacity is relatively small, if used to play games, it may seem a little difficult, but it is not a problem to meet the normal use of the day.

Finally, for the sales information, the 6GB+128GB version is 2699 RMB, 8GB / 128GB is 2999RMB and 8GB / 256GB is 3299RMB.
