As for the specs, that’s where you start to see tradeoffs. The Meizu 16X skips the Snapdragon 845 SoC in favour of a Snapdragon 710 chipset and is clocked up to 2.2GHz with at least 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM. The Meizu 16X display size wasn’t disclosed but we do know that it has an AMOLED panel with a 90.62 percent screen-to-body ratio. The big surprise is the on-screen fingerprint reader which still makes the cut despite that big price discount.

On the photography side of things, the selfie shooter is a 20MP single sensor and the rear camera consists of a 12MP (IMX380)+ IMX350 sensors with HDR, OIS and AI.
