Meizu 18s and 18s Pro arrive on SD 888+ and modern camera, with 18x tag SD 870
Meizu refreshes its 18 Series offering with three new models – 18s, 18s Pro, and 18x. All three feature high-end Snapdragon Snapdragon chips, high refresh reset screens, fast charging, and elegant design.
Meizu 18s and 18s Pro are both powerful with Snapdragon 888+ vapor chamber cooling, up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage.
Meizu 18s Pro is equipped with a curved 6.7 “Super AMOLED display with 1,440 x 3,200 px resolution (20: 9), 120 Hz refresh rate, and 240 Hz touch sampling rate. It is HDR10 + certified and has a peak brightness of 1,300 knots.
The Camera Department boasts a 1 / 1.3 “50 MP ISOCELL GN1 sensor (1.2 µm wide pixels and 4-in-1 binding support and dual pixel AF). Its custom 7P lens (23mm equivalent focal length) is a Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) optical image stabilization (OIS) system. This main camera can record 8K video and has a dedicated night mode
Next up is the 32MP IMX616 sensor with an ultra-wide-angle camera (130º, 15mm). It has a lens f / 2.2 aperture and the focus can be up to 2 cm (less than an inch) for macro photo capture.
There is a 79mm telephoto camera (approximately 3.5x magnification, f / 2.4 aperture) with an 8MP sensor (OV08A10). Also on the back is a 3D depth sensor on board that also helps with autofocus and has been used for Mental Reality graphics. The front camera has a 43 MP ISOCELL GH1 sensor (0.7 µm pixels, 4-in-1 binding) with f / 2.4 lens.
The 18s Pro has a 4,500 mAh battery that supports 40W Super mCharge both on USB-C port and wireless. The wired option gets 40% of the charge in 15 minutes, 80% of the 33 minutes, and the full 100% gain in 55 minutes. The mCharge system is compatible with USB Power Delivery 3.0 and QuickCharge 4+.
Despite its fairly large 6.7-inch display, the Pro model weighs 189g and measures 73mm, 8.1mm wide. The body is soil and water-resistant, though we don’t see the IP rating or at least the information about how long it can last.
Today the smaller Meizu 18s have a curved 6.2 “Super AMOLED display with the same 1440p + resolution, 120 Hz refresh rate, 240 Hz touch sampling rate, and 1,300 knots peak brightness. The built-in ultrasonic fingerprint reader display of the same 18s and 18s Pro feature is built-in, which can unlock the phone in just 0.1 seconds and can even work with a gleaming fingerprint.
The main camera uses a 64 MP IM682 sensor (1 / 1.7 “, 0.8 µm pixels), has an f / 1.6 aperture in 26mm lens, and also has SMA OIS.
The main module includes a 16MP ultra-wide camera with a 122º / 15mm lens that can focus up to 2.5 cm (1 “) macro photos. Uses a 3x telephoto camera (79mm lens) as the S8U8MP Sensor Pro model. And finally, there’s a 20MP front camera with a 26MP lens
The charging system is more precise, but fast enough – a 4,000 mAh battery can charge up to 36W, which reduces the standard by 80% in 33 minutes and 100% in 55 minutes. USB PD 3.0 and QuickCharge 3+ are supported, with no wireless charging.
All 18s 18s models feature dual super liner speakers with smart amps and a haptic engine with a large liner motor.
The Meizu 18x stands out as an 18s pair with flat-screen and flat sides. It has a screen size of 6.67 ”and a 10-bit OLED panel with 1,080 x 2,400 px resolution (20: 9), 120 Hz refresh rate, and a fast 360 Hz touch sampling rate. The fingerprint reader comes in at a little slower, 0.15s to unlock.
This phone is capable of replacing Snapdragon 870, up to 8/12 GB of LPDDR4X RAM (with up to 7 GB of virtual RAM and expansion), and UFS 3.1 storage. Run all three phones Flyme 9.2.
The main camera uses a 64 MP ISOCELL GW3 sensor (1 / 1.97 ”, with 0.7 µm pixels 4-in-1 binding). This is behind the 26mm lens without optical stabilization. Included is an 8MP ultra-wide camera (120º) and a 2MP dual-sensor, selfie camera with a 13MP sensor.
4,300 mAh battery gives 30W charge and 70% kill in 30 minutes, a full charge takes 60 minutes. USB PD and QC4 + are also supported.
