Earlier today (8th March 2021), the Meizu 18 series went on sale across multiple online channels. The new device is the company’s flagship series and arrives with top notch specs. But just one minute into its launch, the lineup was completely sold out, with sales surpassing 100 million yuan (roughly 15 million US Dollars).
The new “dual flagship” launch from the Chinese smartphone maker included the Meizu 18 and 18 Pro, which runs on the latest Flyme 9 custom skin that does not have any pre installed applications or advertisements. During the new series’ first official sale, the sales reached over 100 million yuan in value across all channels in just one minute, while the device was completely sold out within just 28 minutes.
Talking about the device itself, The Meizu 18 and 18 Pro are powered by the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform. Both handsets are equipped with up to 12GB of LPPDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The Meizu 18 has a 4,000mAh battery, whereas the Pro model gets a larger 4,500mAh battery. The vanilla model supports 36W Super mCharge fast charging, while the Pro model is equipped with 40W charging, 40W Super Wireless mCharge technology, and 10W reverse wireless charging.
In other words, the lineup is quite popular in the company’s home market, China, and has already seen great success. The reasonable pricing for the flagship grade premium smartphones and their design and popularity in the local market would’ve also helped boost sales.
