Chinese smartphone manufacturer Meizu has re-entered the Indian smartphone market and launched three new handsets — the C9, the M6T and M16TH, in India, in the budget and affordable premium segments, respectively. All three phones will be available exclusively online on Amazon.in.
The C9 is the budget handset and is said to be packed with premium features at an unrealistic price tag. It comes with popular features such as Face Unlock and a 5.45-inch display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. The C9 comes with a 3000mAh battery and sports a 13MP rear camera. Apart from this, the C9 also sports light sensors, proximity sensors, an accelerometer, and a fingerprint scanner. It is priced at Rs 5,999 and there is a special introductory offer from Amazon and Reliance Jio where the device’s price is set at Rs 4,999.
The Meizu M6T is priced at Rs 7,999 and comes with a 13MP + 2MP dual-camera which uses a Sony IMX278 RGBW four colour sensor. Apart from the multi-frame noise reduction technology, it also helps in preserving more dark details on the software level, enhancing the low-light photo experience. It comes with a 3300mAh battery and will be available in two colour variants-black and rose gold in India. The handset is powered by an octa-core processor for seamless gaming and a smooth user experience. The handset also comes with a fingerprint scanner to enhance its security options.
The top-of-the-line Meizu M16TH comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage and is available on Amazon with an introductory price of Rs 39,999. The brand has not used a notch design but instead features the world’s slimmest bezel that measures just 1.43mm and boasts a screen-to-body ratio of almost 90 per cent. The M16th also sports a combination camera of 12-megapixel and 20-megapixel dual imaging system on the rear, while the front camera is a 20-megapixel shooter with f/2.0 aperture, and support for 1080p video recording. The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and features a water-cooling system that keeps the device’s heat down to a minimum. The phone also sports an in-display fingerprint sensor and runs on the Flyme user interface based on Android 8.0 Oreo. To keep the device charged, Meizu has added a 3010mAh battery.
