Meizu-V8

Meizu V8 and V8 Pro were launched on Wednesday, alongside the launch of the Meizu 16X and X8. Both the newly launched smartphones feature 5.7-inch 18:9 displays, rear fingerprint sensor, and 5-megapixel front cameras with an f/1.9 aperture. Meizu also revealed the V8 and V8 Pro price, release date, and specifications on Wednesday.
