Meizu is gearing up to introduce its new flagship smartphones. After multiple reports, the company has finally shared the official launch date with us. On November 30, the Chinese smartphone maker will introduce the Meizu 21 series. The event is set to start at 2:30 PM Beijing Time (6:30 UTC) and the lineup is expected to include the Meizu 21 and Meizu 21 Pro.
Meizu 21 and Meizu 21 Pro Key Features and Details
Meizu already teased some of the key specifications coming with the Meizu 21. For instance, the new smartphone will boast a 6.55 Samsung OLED screen. It will feature symmetrical 1.74 mm bezels on all four sides of the screen. Meizu also revealed it will offer a version of the Meizu with a white front panel. Nowadays, we don’t have many devices with white front panels, so it’s definitively a nice extra. Under the hood, the Meizu 21 series will boast the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 with FlymeOS based on Android 14.
Obviously, Geely, the automaker behind Meizu brand, will also take the opportunity to tease FlymeAuto along with the Meizu 21 series. The new phones are expected to pair nicely with Geely’s fleet of vehicles that come under Polestar, Lotus, and Lynk & Co brands. Meizu also confirmed it will offer an extended 36-month warranty to all Meizu 21 smartphones.

The Meizu 21 series battery capacity will start at 4,800 mAh and both phones are expected to include 80W fast-charging support. The Pro variant may get a slightly larger battery with 5,020 mAh capacity. It is unclear whether the Pro model will also offer wireless charging. Both the Meizu 21 and 21 Pro are expected to include an OIS-enabled 50 MP primary camera. The standard variant will feature an ultra-wide camera and a telephoto camera. The Pro edition will have a ultra-wide shooter and a periscope telephoto camera. Both phones will feature an RGB ring LED flash on the back. Both phones will come with Flyme 10-based Android 14.
Meizu’s new flagships set to compete with OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo and other mainstream brands
The Meizu 21 series will replace the Meizu 20 and Meizu 20 Pro flagships which debuted with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip earlier this year. The launch of new smartphones in less than one year after their predecessors is a surprise. In fact, it confirms Geely’s wish to re-establish Meizu’s glory as a flagship smartphone company. The company is not only launching new flagships in less than a year, but is also taking a ride in the trend of new flagships coming after the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. We are excited to see what Meizu has in tow for the smartphone market.
At this point, Meizu will compete with Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, Honor and OnePlus and most of the maistream brands launching flagships with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The device can be an interesting competitor with unique design and some neat features like FlymeOS.
