At the beginning of July a mysterious Meizu smartphone with a model number M816Q got certified and we assumed it was the Meizu X8. According to the latest listing at TENAA, this is likely an ultra-cheap phone from the M-series and will probably be called Meizu M8 Lite, an even more affordable option than the Meizu M8c that goes for around 140.

The new Meizu will have a chipset with CPU frequency at 1.3 GHz. It could be either the MediaTek MT6737 SoC with a quad-core Cortex-A53 cluster or the Snapdragon 212 with four Cortex-A7 cores. RAM is listed as 3 GB, while storage is 32 GB, but microSD will be on board for up to 128 more gigs.
The phone will arrive with a single 13 MP camera on the back, coupled with a dual-tone LED flash and a fingerprint scanner below. The selfie snapper is 5 MP and sits in the forehead. This phone will stay away from the notch – it is listed with tall HD+ resolution with 18:9 ratio and a 5.7 diagonal of the LCD panel.
The battery is listed as 3,100 mAh and will be sealed in the 148.1 x 73 x 8.44 mm body with a 145 grams weight. The phone will be available in either Black or White, but actual prices and availability are yet to be issued by Meizu.
