Meizu is expected to announce the Meizu 16X smartphone in this month. Apart from the 16X, the Chinese manufacturer is also working on some budget-friendly phones since M816Q and M813Q handsets were recently spotted at TENAA with modest specs. A tipster from China has shared some images of a new device called Meizu V8. The appearance of the device suggests that it could be a low-budget device. It is speculated that the newly spotted Meizu V8 may also debut in this month, probably alongside the Meizu 16X.
The front view of the alleged Meizu V8 handset suggests that it is equipped with an 18:9 aspect ratio display. It sports a symmetric design like the Meizu 16th flagship phone. Since antenna lines are not visible on the back panel, the handset seems to be equipped with a polycarbonate rear which hints that it is a budget-friendly smartphone. The appearance of the handset is same as the Meizu M813Q phone that was spotted at TENAA in the previous month.
The TENAA certification of the M813Q had revealed that it measures 147.58 x 72.68 x 8.1mm and it weighs 159 grams. The TENAA images show that the rear design of the Meizu 813Q is exactly as that of the alleged Meizu V8. The handset features a pill-shaped dual-tone LED flash, vertical dual camera setup and a fingerprint scanner. Hence, it appears that the Meizu M813Q may release in the market as Meizu V8.
It is fitted with a 5.7-inch LCD display that supports HD+ resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. The handset is fueled by an octa-core processor that clocks at 2.0 GHz. It is speculated that it could be powered by MediaTek Helio P60. The SoC is supported by 4 GB of RAM.
The Meizu M813Q has an internal storage of 64 GB of RAM. There is a memory card slot on the phone that supports up to 128 GB of microSD card. The rear shell of the phone features 12-megapixel + 5-megapixel dual camera system. At the front is a 5-megapixel selfie camera. It is packed with a 3,000mAh battery. The handset is loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo OS flavored with Flyme OS.
At present, there is no information available on the pricing and launch date of Meizu V8.
