Meizu 20 is the name of the next flagship series from Meizu. While Meizu may be a lesser-known brand outside of China, it is a well-known company with a loyal following in the home market. In 2021, Meizu launched the Meizu 18, 18 Pro, and 18s flagship phones powered by the Snapdragon 8-series chipset. This year, it did not launch a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or 8+ Gen 1 phone.
A couple of months ago, Meizu was acquired by the China-based Xingji Times. To those who are unaware, popular car manufacturer Geely Group holds 32 percent of shares of Xingji Times. Recent reports have claimed that Meizu is planning to launch its first phones after the acquisition. Several reports have claimed that the Meizu 18 will be succeeded by the Meizu 19 series. However, leaked information obtained by Pricebaba reveals that the next-generation flagship phones from Meizu will be called the Meizu 20 and the Meizu 20 Pro.
Meizu 20, Meizu 20 Pro monikers
Firmware data provided to us by tipster Paras Guglani reveals that upcoming Meizu phones with model numbers M381Q and M391Q will have the Meizu 20 and the Meizu 20 Pro marketing names, respectively. Hence, it appears that the company may have decided to skip the Meizu 19 moniker. Another reason to stick to the 20 nomenclature could be that Meizu 20 series will be the twentieth-anniversary phone from the brand.
Meizu 20, Meizu 20 Pro configurations
Meizu confirmed today that it would soon release flagships powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. We can confirm that the Meizu 20 and Meizu 20 Pro will both feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. The Pro model will be available in two variants: 8 GB of RAM with 256 GB of storage and 12 GB of RAM with 512 GB of storage. It will be available in at least three colours.
At present, there is no information on the configurations of the vanilla model. Also, the other specifications of the Meizu 20 series haven’t surfaced yet. What can be said is that like the predecessor Meizu flagships, the Meizu 20 lineup is likely to impress in all aspects, such as design, specifications, and aggressive pricing.
