Shots of the upcoming Meizu X smartphone have been leaking lately, with the rear panel and its dual camera setup making their appearance before the front panel press photo that we have now. It shows a sleek device looking somewhat similar to the Honor 8
. It's complete with thin side bezels, a metal frame, and the typical elipse-shaped Meizu home button. However, unlike other Meizu handsets, this one will have its circular-shaped fingerprint sensor placed on the back, rather than embedded in the Home button.
Meizu's latest smartphone should be revealed November 30. Rumors say the Meizu X is powered by the MediaTek Helio X20 chipset, with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The handset will also support Cat. 6 LTE with download speeds of up to 300Mbps, along with dual carrier aggregation. The rumored price for the high-end 6GB RAM version is said to be around $289.
Meizu smartphones aren't officially sold outside China, but they are popular imports in Europe and Russia. U.S. customers, though, will be poorly surprised by the lack of 4G compatibility, due to the country's specific LTE bands. So don't fall for the Meizu X's sleek design and affordable price when it ships.
