Last month, Xiaomi launched Mi 8 SE with the all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform. Recently, Vivo also launched Vivo NEX A bezel-less smartphone with the same processor. The Snapdragon 710 is the first processor in the new Snapdragon 700-series. It is also first non 800-series processor from Qualcomm to use the 10nm FinFET processor. Now, Meizu becomes the third smartphone manufacturer to use the Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform.
Jack Wong (a.k.a Huang Zhang), CEO of Meizu, has confirmed the existence of a new smartphone called Meizu X8 in their community forum. 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.
Talking about the Meizu X8, we don’t have any more information about the device. Looking at the current trend, we expect the device to come with a notch display and AI-enabled dual rear cameras. In the coming months, Meizu will also launch the Meizu 16 and 16 Plus flagship smartphones. Based on the leaks, both these devices will also come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile platform.
The Meizu 16 Plus is also rumored to offer triple rear cameras and 32W fast charging support. It is rumored to come with a 6.1-inch display and 18:9 aspect ratio. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details about the upcoming Meizu smartphones.
