Meizu has finally joined the notch panel gang with the release of the Meizu X8 Presently packing a notch screen design. The gadget was unveiled along the Meizu 16X, V8/V8 Pro as well as a wireless Bluetooth headphones. We recall how the company’s CEO Jerry Wang has been fairly critical of the notch present design, insisting it isn’t the future of the telephone present design and style. Whereas we admire the company’s own style of reducing the bezels as seen on the Meizu 16th and the most recent 16X, we can’t help but laugh at the firm’s sudden move with the X8. The product is thus, Meizu’s first telephone with a notch-screen design and style.

The notch is a wide one and houses the selfie shooter, ear piec, a breathing light, infrared transmitter and signal receiver. Despite the notch design and style, the product yet arrives with an 89.6% screen-to-body ratio. That is as a result of the obvious quantity of bezels on all four angles. The notch only helped Meizu trim off a slight chunk off what would have been the bezel size at the top. The Meizu X8 doesn’t have the traditional mBack button for which Meizuis known. Instead, it uses onscreen gestures. The product arrives with number of of them such as sliding the backside part of the show to return. Long slides are used to return back to the desktop as nicely as access the multitasking tabs. display. the screen gestures which Meizu’s Super mBack, as nicely as Android navigation, brings are moreover retained on the model.
