After a leaked render of the Meizu X’s rear, a new render has revealed the front of the upcoming smartphone. Based on the leaked render, it appears that Meizu has adopted a design that looks to be very similar to Huawei’s Honor 8 smartphone.
While it doesn’t look absolutely identical to the Honor 8 from the front, there is definitely a resemblance. The one major difference however, is that the Meizu X features a physical home button on the front, while the Honor 8 does not. From the rear, the two smartphones don’t look very similar, except for the rear camera positioning. However, at this point it isn’t confirmed if the Meizu X will come with a dual camera setup at the back or if it will feature a single camera at the back.
In terms of specs, the Meizu X is expected to be powered by either the MediaTek Helio X20 or the X25 deca-core SoC under the hood, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Some reports even suggest the Meizu X could pack the MediaTek Helio X30 SoC under the hood, but that doesn’t seem plausible as the 10nm SoC is not expected to be available until the second half of 2017.
Meizu will be debuting its latest Flyme 6 OS as well at the November 30 event, with the Meizu X being the first smartphone to ship with it out of the box. Based on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system, Flyme 6 is expected to include a number of new features and improvements.
