The Meizu founder, Huang Zhang was unusually active in the Meizu community for some time and broke news about the new Meizu phones. Just recently, we have been talking about the Meizu 16 Plus, which is going to be a true flagship packing a 6.5-inch full-screen, a Snapdragon 845 chip, and an 8GB of RAM. But we know there is another phone named the Meizu X8 that is going to hit the market in the nearest future as well. So Huang Zhang talked about this phone too.
He said the Meizu X8 will cost no more than 2000 yuan ($304). So there is every reason to think it will be positioning the mid-range market, unlike the Meizu 16 Plus that is going to struggle for the highest positions. Actually, Huang Zhang likes to compare their handsets with Xiaomi models. Today he said the Meizu X8 will come with a higher configuration than the Mi 8 SE, which is the first Snapdragon 710-powered smartphone.
Previously, we learned the Meizu X8 will be packed with this chip, which is based on a 10nm process node, uses a Kryo 360 architecture, an octa-core design, and a clock speed of 2.2GHz. There is also an integrated Adreno 616 graphics. Thanks to this configuration, it scores up to 170.000 at AnTuTu. That’s why it’s called a pseudo-flagship.
The Mi 8 SE, which seems to be the closest rival to the forthcoming Meizu X8, was priced at 1799 yuan ($273) and 1999 yuan ($303) for the 4+64GB and 6+64GB models, respectively. So we can write down the higher variant of the X8 will come with a 6GB of RAM. Otherwise, Xiaomi’s model will be cheaper.
