The Indian smartphone market will remain busy in December as new models from various makers will be launched. The Chinese phone maker Meizu is said to launch three smartphones in August 2019 in a New Delhi-based event. We have heard that apart from the flagship Meizu M 16th and budget phone Meizu M6T, the company is going to launch a mid-range phone.
It is interesting that Meizu returns to India with new smartphones after a gap of eighteen months when the company launched Meizu M5.
The flagship Meizu M 16th is already launched in China in August this year with the name Meizu 16. It has a bigger companion as Meizu 16 Plus in China. The starting cost of Meizu 16 is CNY 2698 (Approximately INR 27.100) for a base 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant. The Meizu 16 Plus, on the other hand, starts at CNY 3198 (Roughly INR 32,100). From the price viewpoint, we can expect that the upcoming Meizu M 16th would compete with OnePlus 6T in India that costs around INR 37,999.
The Meizu 6T was also launched in China in May as a budget phone. Its starting price is CNY 799 (approximately INR 8,999). The same phone will be launched as Meizu M6T in India this December.
Though there is no much clarity about the third mid-range smartphone, we expect that it may the Meizu 16X. It is already launched in the Chinese market in September this year along with the Meizu X8. It could be the Meizu X8 also, but at this point in time, we do not have much information on the third phone to be launched in the August event.
On the basis of already launched phones, we can give the specifications of upcoming phones as below:
