Meizu 16T - ultra-cheap, quite flagship

When it comes to low-cost records inregarding smartphones flagship features, which brand will come to mind first? Options are possible, but it is unlikely that it will be Meizu. Since the announcement of the Meizu 16T, the situation has changed dramatically.

Prices for a smartphone based on the chipsetQualcomm Snapdragon 855, indecently low even for the Chinese market, and given the proposed amount of memory and even more so. I would like to ask what the catch is.

Varieties and prices:

6 GB RAM + 128 GB ROM ¥ 1999 (179₽)
8 GB RAM + 128 GB ROM ¥ 2299 (206₽)
8 GB RAM + 256 GB ROM ¥ 2499 ($ ​​227)

In addition to the flagship iron and a substantial amountboth operational and built-in flash memory, the smartphone boasts an excellent battery - 4500 mAh with support for fast charging 18 W, as well as a high-resolution screen - Super AMOLED, 6.5 ″, 381 pixels per inch, aspect ratio 9: 18.6. The fingerprint scanner built into the display will no longer be taken as a plus or minus, it seems to have become an almost inevitable property of the AMOLED screen. But the absence of a notch is worth noting - this is now a rarity.

The main camera is triple, not very highresolution, but valid: 12 MP Sony IMX362 with aperture f / 1.9 plus 8 MP Samsung 4H7 with wide-angle lens (118 °, f / 2.2) plus an additional 5 MP Samsung 5E9 (f / 1.9). It supports macro shooting from a distance of 2.5 cm, recording video in 4K format (60 frames per second) and slow-motion video (240 frames per second). You can also shoot ultra-wide-angle video.

The front camera has a resolution of 16 MP, supports shooting in night mode, HDR and provides face unlock.

The colors are interesting, the case is iridescent, “our” LTE frequencies are supported. Perhaps for the money you can forgive the lack of NFC and a slot for memory cards.

It is very curious with what price tag the smartphone will appear on Aliexpress. It will obviously reach the Russian market later (if it happens at all).
