Meizu’s founder Jack Wong has been unusually active on the company’s community forum. He has been consistently revealing information on the features of the upcoming smartphones from the company. Earlier this week, Wong had confirmed on the existence on a new smartphone named Meizu X8. He had also revealed that the X8 would be fueled by the new Snapdragon 710 SoC. Yesterday evening, he gave out some more information on the Meizu X8 smartphone.
Wong has claimed that the upcoming X8 will be better than Xiaomi Mi 8 SE which is the first smartphone to be powered by Snapdragon 710. He also said that the X8 will be featuring a larger display than the Mi 8 SE. Wong did not confirm on the exact pricing of the Meizu X8, but he revealed that the handset will be priced under 2,000 Yuan (~$303).
The Mi 8 SE was introduced in two variants such as 64 GB storage + 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage + 6 GB. These models are respectively priced at 1,799 Yuan and 1,999 Yuan. The new details revealed by Wong clearly suggests that the Meizu X8 will be a good rival for the Mi 8 SE.
Since the X8 is an upper mid-range phone, it won’t be featuring in-display fingerprint. The advanced fingerprint scanning technology will be available on Meizu 16 and 16 Plus flagship phones that are slated to go official in August.
The upcoming Meizu X8 will be introducing the X series which will be arriving to replace the MX series. The Meizu X6 that was released in 2016 is the last the MX smartphone from the company. Last year, it was supposed to announce the MX7, but the Chinese firm did not launch it.
