Meizu's CEO, Jack Wong, has teased the pending launch of a new device, the Meizu Note 9. The Note 9 will be powered by the yet unreleased Snapdragon 6150—likely to be called the Snapdragon 655—and will feature a 48 MP camera sensor.
Ricci Rox,

Meizu CEO Jack Wong has teased a new device that could be set to canter right out of the company’s stables soon. The device, the Meizu Note 9, will be a direct successor to the Meizu Note 8 that was launched a couple of months ago, and is billed to offer a package more impressive than its predecessor did.

According to Wong’s Weibo teaser, the Note 9 will be powered by a Snapdragon 6150. No such chipset exists yet. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 6xx series has become rather convoluted over the past year, and the Snapdragon 6150 will likely make things worse. Considering the fact that the Snapdragon 855 was named “SD 8150” in internal documents, it’s likely that the SoC on the Note 9 will be an all-new Snapdragon 655. It’s said to be built on an 11nm manufacturing node.

The Note 9 is also said to feature a 48 MP sensor, which could be Sony’s IMX586 or Samsung’s Isocell Bright GM1. We’re leaning towards the former. In any case, Meizu phones have a reputation for great camera performance—which usually goes unnoticed by the western media—and we don’t expect the Note 9 to be any different.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on this.

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.
