Meizu may be pulling out of the smartphone business to focus on AI, but the Geely-owned company has at least one more model to launch before it waves goodbye. A Pro version of the Meizu 21 with a better screen, a tele camera and a bigger battery with wireless charging just went official.

Let’s start from the front. The Meizu 21 Pro is equipped with a 6.79” AMOLED display with 1,368 x 3,192px resolution (21:9) and 1,250 nits peak brightness. This is an LTPO panel with 1-120Hz refresh rate (for comparison, the vanilla 21 has a 6.55” FHD+ 19.5:9 display). The 32MP selfie camera is the same.

Behind the glass is a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 but with 12GB of RAM as standard (up from 8GB) and with a 16GB version. Also, storage comes in 256GB, 512GB and now 1TB capacities too.

Going around the back, the 200MP camera is gone, replaced by a 50MP main. To pick up the slack when it comes to zooming in, there is a 72mm (3x) telephoto module with a 10MP sensor (and up to 30x digital zoom). The ultra wide camera is the same at 13MP 122° (15mm). There is a ToF depth sensor to improve autofocus, the main camera can record 8K video and enjoys OIS and EIS stabilization.

Monster of a phone with monster specs for a very charming price.

Looks pretty damn awesome.

from what i know, xperia does not have IR blaster. it still does not make sense to call 21:9 a remote. 21:9 aspect ratio will be the future.
