Meizu announced its association with Qualcomm back at the Snapdragon Summit in December. The company is expected to launch new flagship phones powered by the Snapdragon 888 chipset soon. Going by the numbers, it is likely the Meizu 18 series of devices. And they may have already received the 3C certification in China.
As Digital Chat Station points out, two Meizu devices have reportedly appeared on the 3C certification website. The model numbers are M181Q and M191Q. If you recall, the Meizu 17, 17 Pro appeared with model numbers M081QM091Q respectively. Trackback to 2018 and Meizu 16 series- 16, 16 Plus got certified with M882Q, and M892Q respectively.
For Meizu 17 series, although the Pro version had a 40W designation, the device indeed debuted with a 30W charging support. Hence, We aren’t sure if Meizu would adopt the same difference in the final version either. Anyway, the M181Q and M191Q could be the Meizu 18 series and support up to [email protected](30W) and [email protected](40W) respectively.

The tipster also mentions that the two models could come with 3,910mAh(Typ. 4,000mAh) and 4,410mAh(Typ. 4,500mAh) batteries. Another interesting point to note here is the absence of the charger. The listing says that the models will be “sold without a standard power adapter”(Translated).
Apple began the trend of excluding the power adapter in the retail box packaging with the iPhone 12 series. Later, companies like Xiaomi, Samsung have adopted the same with Xiaomi Mi 11, Samsung Galaxy S21 respectively. Now it looks like Meizu might join the 2021 bandwagon and the list is only going to get longer now.
Meizu 18 series is still a bit of a mystery as the company has neither announced a launch time frame or it has appeared extensively on leaks. The company is expected to launch Meizu 18 and Meizu 18 Pro as a part of the series.
