Today, the Meizu CEO Jack Wong has confirmed through the Meizu forums that the Meizu 16s will go official as early as May next. It could be equipped with Snapdragon 8150 chipset.
When quizzed on when will the company be launching the Meizu 17 smartphone, Wong responded that it will be debuting the Meizu 16s smartphone as the anniversary version of the Meizu 16th.
