Meizu announced Flyme 8.1 in early May – its customized version of Android 10. The company is now recruiting volunteers for a closed beta test, which reveals that 10 older models are on the upgrade path.
The beta test will start on July 21, only Meizu owners in China can participate and you have to be registered in the System Update app. You have until July 31 to register.
The new version of Flyme OS (already running on the Flyme 17 phones) features optimizations and increases system stability. It adds support for low latency connection to TWS headsets. Meizu Pay allows transport cards to be transferred between Meizu devices connected to the same account.
Small Window Mode 2.1 now supports 24 apps. They use bubble notifications while you play a game or watch a movie to avoid interruptions. Also, there are improvements to the camera and gallery apps. This update also introduces OneMind 4.0 (Meizu’s AI platform) and updates Aicy (the digital assistant).
That’s not all. Flyme is turning 8 years old and the company may celebrate by releasing its first ever smartwatch. A square watch, judging by the silhouette shown in the image below (right next to what appears to be the Meizu 17).
If you’re in China and want to take part in the beta test, you can follow the Source link for instructions on how to join.
