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.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
