Meizu Vice President Li Nan has confirmed that a new device is in the works. The device, the Meizu X2, will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 and will likely ship with a price tag in the $450 range when it is launched much later in the year.

Meizu released the M6s last month, a budget device that did a lot of things right—on paper, at least. The Chinese OEM also has a premium device in the works, in the form of the Meizu 15 Plus—to be released in commemoration of the company's 15-year anniversary. Yet another flagship-tier smartphone could be coming soon, though, as Meizu's Vice President, Li Nan, has confirmed the development of a device, the X2, which will be powered by a Snapdragon 845.

The X2 is expected to be released towards the tail end of 2018, and it will come with a price tag in the US$450 region. Not much else is known at this point—its predecessor, the Meizu X, was released in November 2016, but it was a mid-ranger, so it's a tad hard to extrapolate possible features from it.

Meizu seems so to have finally taken the Qualcomm route, which should be a welcome development to fans, as the company's romance with MediaTek was getting a tad tedious. That still doesn't change much right now, however, as community development is still lackluster, even for popular devices like the Snapdragon 625-powered M6 Note. We can only hope that changes with time, as software is considered by most to be the OEM's most significant weakness.
