Meizu 16X shows up on Geekbench carrying Snapdragon 710 SoC

Meizu 16 and 16 Plus’ unveiling went fairly unnoticed because everyone was focusing on the Galaxy Note9 launch yesterday. But that doesn’t mean that the Meizu 16 lineup isn’t worth our attention.

At first, we thought that Meizu is working on a plus-sized version with Snapdragon 845 and a regular one with Snapdragon 710, but when the company announced the phones, we were surprised to see the SD845 powering the small version as well. Shortly after the announcement, the company’s CEO himself confirmed that a third alteration called Meizu 16X is in the works.

This is the device that’s supposed to run Snapdragon 710 paired with 6GB of RAM and it already showed up on Geekbench. The clock speeds on the score sheet gave it away. Also, the score is pretty similar to the Snapdragon 710-powered Mi 8 SE despite being a little low. Anyway, we will let that one slide since it’s still in the pre-production stage.

We can’t wait to see how it compares to Xiaomi’s budget flagship, the Mi 8 SE, in terms of pricing and performance.
