Meizu X8 joins the notch squad with a SD710 and а $235 price

Yordan, 20 September 2018

Meizu unveiled the 16X yesterday, along with the affordable duo V8 and V8 Pro. A fourth smartphone called Meizu X8 is a mixture of neat specs and low cost and somehow went under the radar. One of the reasons is probably it is the first phone of the company with the infamous notch, even if the cutout was skipped in two previous flagship series from earlier this year.

The phone has a 6.2” screen with Full HD+ resolution (2,220 x 1,080 pixels). There is a Snapdragon 710 chipset on the inside with an octa-core CPU up to 2.2 GHz. The memory combinations are 4/64 GB, 6/64 GB, 6/128 GB.

Meizu X8 comes with a simple dual camera setup on the back - 12 MP f/1.9 is the primary sensor, while the secondary is there to enable Portrait Mode and has a 5 MP sensor. The selfie shooter is a regular 20 MP cam with f/2.0 aperture. Everyone is into Face Unlock now and Meizu follows suit - the X8 feature is called Face AE.

The face recognition feature is part of the AI-infused Flyme OS, based on Android Oreo. There is a 3,210 mAh battery with USB-C port positioned on the bottom, next to the speaker. The 3.5 mm jack is also present, but Meizu put it on the top.

The Meizu X8 comes in Blue, Black, and White. The 4/64 GB version costs CNY1,598 ($230), the 6/64 GB is CNY1,798 ($262), while the most powerful 6/128 GB variant is CNY1,998 ($290). The phone is already available for pre-order on Meizu’s website.
