Do you remember the last smartphone by Meizu? Was it the Meizu 18, or even this version didn’t go on sale? Anyway, if you have already buried this brand, do not hurry. Today, TechGoing reported that a new Meizu smartphone had appeared on the GeekBench benchmarking platform. The alleged Meizu 20 is assumed to use a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship chip.

Meizu 20

If our memory serves well, we heard that Meizu would skip the Meizu 19 moniker for its upcoming flagship phones a month ago. At the same time, the rumors claimed that the company would launch the Meizu 20 and Pro smartphones. Though there was no official statement, the source revealed some info concerning the model numbers and configurations.

If those rumors were accurate, the Meizu 20 would come with an M381Q model number, while the Pro would have an M391Q model number. So if you find these model numbers in any database, just know that they refer to the Meizu 20 series.

Lastly, from that report, we learned that the Meizu 20 and 20 Pro would sport the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. Among them, the Pro version should come in 8GB RAM + 256GB storage and 12GB RAM + 512GB storage variants.
