After several months of absence in this region, Meizu launched its flagship Meizu 16th and Meizu M6T in India in December last year following it up with the introduction of the entry-level Meizu C9 smartphone, Meizu Pop true-wireless earbuds and EP52 Lite wireless earphones. The company has now revealed that it’ll soon launch another smartphone in India and it’ll probably be another flagship device.
The news comes from Meizu India who has taken to Twitter to post a series of teasers for their upcoming flagship smartphone. The official account’s header has been changed to display the hashtag “#ThePowerOf16” while the texts read out loud that “Super is coming”. Meizu has also gone on to lengths to mock OnePlus with another tweet which reads “1 + 6 = 7. It is not even half of 16”, surely confirming that their new phone is expected to rival that of the OnePlus 6.
