The Meitu T8, it’s a 5.2-inch phone featuring a powerful selfie camera and an improved version of its selfie app.
Meitu’s new selfie feature makes its primary camera capable of detecting your skin tone, gender and age, and then beautifying you accordingly — even in a group picture.
Each face is enhanced differently for a better effect. It’s also powerful enough to enhance a face in real-time for videos.
Dual-pixel sensor technology in camera hardware allows the sensor to capture more light. It’s the same technology found on the Samsung Galaxy S7.
The front 12-megapixel shooter also packs optical image stabilization, phase detection auto-focus and Meitu’s own noise reduction technology.
T8 features a hexagonal design that’s found on previous Meitu phones, such as the M6, another selfie phone announced last year.
The phone goes on sale in China on February 21 starting at 3,300 yuan, which converts to $480, AU$630 and £385.
