A few days after Meizu’s founder Jack Wong has been unusually active on the company’s community forum. He has said that the upcoming Meizu X8 would be powered by a Snapdragon 710 SoC and will not feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, he has revealed more information about the device.
Founder Jack 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. However, he has not disclosed the exact price of the Meizu X8 but stated that the handset will be priced under 2000 Yuan (approximately Rs 20,700). The Mi 8 SE, in comparison, is available at a starting price of CNY 1799 (approximately Rs 18,680) and goes up to CNY 1999 (approximately Rs 20,700).
The Meizu X8 will be using the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform coupled with in-house Kryo 360 CPU and Adreno 616 GPU. It packs 2x high-performance cores clocked at 2.2GHz and 6x power efficient cores clocked at 1.7GHz. With this new processor, the device can perform AI tasks quicker than other mid-range devices. It is also rumored to offer triple rear cameras and 32W fast charging support, 6.1-inch display and 18:9 aspect ratio.
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.
