The Chinese smartphone market has been on a rapid rise lately, and it seems like it will continue to rise further. One of the big players in the market, Meizu, seems to have launched its latest budget device now. The device packs in some pretty interesting hardware, especially for its price.
Meizu has launched the Meizu Note 8 in China, which comes as an affordable alternative for the Meizu X8. The smartphone features a metal build with a 6-inch no-notch display and a resolution of 1080x2160p.
Under the hood, you’ll find the Snapdragon 632 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. As for the camera, the device features a 12MP+5MP dual camera setup on the back. The main sensor is a Sony IMX362 with large 1.4µm pixels and Dual Pixel AF. On the front, you’ll find an 8MP sensor for selfies. It also supports face recognition should you opt for that, instead of the fingerprint sensor on the back.
The device comes with Android Oreo with the company’s FlymeOS custom skin on top of that. The Note 8 packs a 3,600mAh that supports 18W fast charging as well. However, it still makes use of the old-school microUSB port. Speaking about old school, it packs in a 3.5mm jack, which is always welcome.
Pricing and Availability
The Meizu Note 8 will go on sale starting November 1st. The device will be available at a price of RMB 1,299 (~Rs. 13,700). It will be available in four colors – Grey, Blue, Pink, and Red. As of now, there is no word whether the device will make its way to India.
