Meizu certifies its first new phones since the start of 2021
Meizu was fairly early to the premium Snapdragon 888-powered smartphone in 2021, but has not released another mobile device since then. Now, however, a famous leaker has discovered the OEM is now working on 2 new products with 5G. They are also likely to have high-end specs at decent prices.
Meizu is a Chinese OEM that beat some others to a launch of its Snapdragon 888-powered flagship phone series in 2021. Then again, follow-ups to the 18 and 18 Pro had not been heard of since this March event. Now, however, Digital Chat Station claims the company is back with what might well be iterative upgrades for these phones.
The famous tipster claims to have dug up new registrations for 2 new Meizu devices on the Chinese national radio authority's database. As their model numbers (M182Q and M192Q) match those associated with those of the 18 series quite closely, they might well be new 5G phones with specs that are updated compared to the existing flagships to some degree.
Given the current market conditions, it is likely that these possibilities might involve the new 888+ processor. Then again, Digital Chat Station also projects that one of these upcoming Meizu phones could have the 870 instead. As for other potential selling points, the 18 Pro rocks the new-ish 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN1 sensor as a main camera; perhaps its hypothetical refresh could do as well in this department.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
