Meizu has also been hyping up the cameras, offering a 16MP front-facing camera and a 12MP+5MP dual camera combo. In fact, the company claims that the 12MP shooter (IMX362) has a f/1.9 aperture and 1.4 micron pixels for better night-time performance, posting a comparison between it and the Huawei P10 (take it with a pinch of salt of course).

A representative for Meizu South Africa told Gearburn that they were “still deciding” whether to bring the phone to the country.
