Back in April this year the US chip manufacturing giant Qualcomm wraps off the cover from three new upper mid-range SoCs including Qualcomm Snapdragon 665, Snapdragon 730 and Snapdragon 730G. The G variant is specially optimized for the gaming phones. We had seen new phones with the Snapdragon 730 SoC. However, we have yet to see any phone powered up by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC.
According to tipster Sudhanshu Ambhore the first Snapdragon 665 SoC driven phone will go official on May 30th. Unfortunately, he didn't reveal any details regarding the phone brand. As per so far info, Meizu is going to unveil Meizu 16Xs on May 30th in China.

If the info is accurate it will be interesting to see first Meizu phone with Snapdragon 665 SoC. So far leaked info indicates the Meizu 16Xs will be running on the Snapdragon 710 SoC. Just for the sake of reminder, the Meizu 16X was powered up by the Snapdragon 710 chipset. The latest Snapdragon 655 is an Octa-core chipset built on the 11nm process and it features Kryo 260 cores. On the other hand, the Snapdragon 710 is built on the 10nm process and it comes with Kryo 360 cores.
It is still a mystery why Meizu opted this chipset for the upcoming 16Xs. As per the TENA listing the Meizu 16Xs features a 6.2-inches AMOLED display with Full HD+ screen resolution. The rear side has triple cameras. A 4,000mAh battery cell is on board to keep its lights on.
The good thing is Meizu fans don't have to wait longer to confirm the info as May 30th is around the corner. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.
