Founder Jack Wong says Meizu X8 will be better than Xiaomi Mi 8 SE

Last week, Meizu founder Jack Wong revealed the company is working on a new smartphone dubbed Meizu X8. In addition to the name, the executive also revealed the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 710 SoC and won’t feature an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Now, Wong has revealed more information related to the phone. He claimed the device will be better than Xiaomi’s Mi 8 SE, which – in case you aren’t already aware – is the first smartphone with a Snapdragon 710 chipset.

Plus, the X8 will have a larger display as well, he added.

Finally, the executive also gave away some pricing-related hints, saying the handset will be priced less than CNY 2,000 (around $305). The Mi 8 SE, for comparison, starts at CNY 1,799 (around $275) and goes up to CNY 1,999 (around $305).

The Meizu X series is said to replace the Chinese company’s MX series, of which the MX6 was the last the device.
