Meizu took the wraps off Meixu X8 back in September. The device was well received by enthusiasts due to the presence of Snapdragon 710 chipset, a powerful processor that is available only in few smartphones. The Meizu X8 will not only come with such a powerful processor but will also be available for a low price of $230.
After a long period of wait, Meizu is finally ready to start selling the X8. The device will be available next Monday, October 15, at 10 AM local time. The device has been in pre-order since the phone launch on September 19, but now it’s time to pay for the real deal. Worth noting that the sales will start for consumers residing in China, there’s no word yet pointing to the global release of the handset.
