The Meizu 16s had another go at AnTuTu and this time it posted a higher score, making it one of the best-performing Androids. Theres about a 5% improvement since last time, which suggests the team is still working on the software for the phone.
Whats interesting is that the new score was posted by Hong Hansheng, who is a system engineer at Meizu. He posted several runs too, the phone shows fairly consistent performance (we picked the top score, just as we do for our own benchmarks).
Heres how it compares to other devices with Snapdragon 855, Kirin 980, Exynos 9820, as well as Apples latest chipset. Note that we included two phones that are yet to be released (the Zenfone 6 and Reno 10x zoom).

Apple iPhone XS Max
Samsung Galaxy S10+
LG G8 ThinQ
Huawei P30 Pro (perf. mode)
The phone is expected to have the roughly same design as the Meizu 16, though the screen goes from 18:9 to 18.6:9, suggesting there might be some changes (the resolution is 1080p+ in both cases). The screen diagonal will go from 6.0 to 6.2, but 3D renders show no notch. Benchmarks have revealed 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage, plus Pie-based Flyme 7 software.
