Meizu V8 Pro was also introduced alongside the V8 during the Meizu event in China. The V8 Pro is the advanced version of the V8 coming with the dual rear camera and an improved chipset.
It’s powered by the Helio P22 chipset from MediaTek and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. Furthermore, there’s a bigger 4GB RAM and 64GB storage space available as well, making it a “value for money” smartphone.

Design And Display
Unlike the V8, the Pro version sports a Metal body with dual curved antenna lines at the top and bottom corner adding to the beauty of the device. At the top middle, we can see the dual rear camera.
However, there’s a LED flash on top of the cameras while the fingerprint scanner follows closely underneath. It will be available in Black and Gold colors, measures 8.1mm in thickness and weighs 159g.
Turning to the front, you’ll be greeted by the same full view display we saw on the V8. There’s no difference in terms of design as the company left the screen just the way it was on the V8. It sports a 5.7-inch HD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels and 282 pixels per inch density for clear visuals. The screen also stretches up to 77.86% screen-to-body ratio.
