Meizu M8C and M8c Lite smartphones receive FCC certification, specifications revealed


Two new smartphones from Meizu have received their FCC certifications, which means that the phones could be released soon. While we don’t know their final names, we know that the model numbers of the two phones are Meizu M809L and the Meizu M810L. Both smartphones appear to be entry-level Android smartphones, and will have low-end specifications.

A Twitter user, who is the admin of Meizu Fans Italia group and who goes by the Twitter handle @karvix8, mentioned in his tweet that the Meizu M8c Lite will bear the model number M809H/L, while the Meizu M8c will bear the model number M810H/L. Both phones will carry forward Meizu’s M series of Android smartphones. Meizu M6, M6 Note, and M6s were launched in September last year. It appears that the company is skipping the number 7 in the lineup this year and jumping straight to the number 8. Let’s have a look at the rear design of the Meizu M8c.

Meizu M809L Design

The Meizu M809L’s FCC certification documents reveal its rear design and the FCC label placement. The phone appears to have a single camera sensor at its rear and an LED flash. The 3.5mm headphone jack appears to have been placed at the top of the phone. Power and volume buttons are on the right side of the phone, while the SIM Card slot will be at the left side of the device. The microUSB 2.0 port, loudspeaker, and microphone are placed at the bottom of the phone.

Going by the FCC certification documents, we came to know that the Meizu M8c (M810L) has a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage. The phone will reportedly run Flyme OS, which is a customised version of Android operating system. The Meizu M8c Lite (M809L) appears to have an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 1GB RAM, and 8GB internal storage. The Meizu M8c Lite will reportedly run Android Go, making it the first phone from the company to run a lighter version of Android operating system.

Both phones have dual-SIM card slots, and support four bands of GSM (B2, B3, B5, B8), five WCDMA bands (B1, B2, B4, B5, B8), one CDMA band (Bc0 800MHz), nine FDD LTE bands (B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B7, B8, B20, B28) and one TD-LTE band (B40).
