This year brought some killer value smartphones on the table with iPhone SE 2020, Xiaomi Mi Note 10, and Upcoming Google Pixel 4a. As a result, the bar for amazing value smartphones has been set. Therefore, Brands like ZTE, TCL, and Meizu are bringing some exciting new devices to compete with those devices. Today, Meizu launched two exciting devices Meizu 17 and 17 Pro at really affordable prices. By following the current trend, we’re seeing a lot of upcoming devices in this range with midrange Snapdragon 765G SoCs like LG Velvet, Mi Note 10. It isn’t a bad SoC by any stretch of the imagination but it doesn’t bring quite the flagship-level performance we’ve come to expect in this price range. But these devices bring the cutting edge Snapdragon 865 SoCs at an impressive price point.
