Meitu will have a launch event in Taipei on Thursday, July 26. The phone will then be available for pre-order starting the same day until July 29. The selling price for the phone is given as NT$20,900 (|$685).
For the above price, you will get a phone with a 6.01-inch Samsung AMOLED 18:9 display. It will have a Snapdragon 660 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The phone is also available in a 4GB RAM + 64GB configuration but we don’t know if that model will be sold in Taiwan.
