Meizu offers some very interesting devices. Some of its best devices are from the Meizu 16 series, notably Meizu 16X. With the upcoming Flyme OS 8.1 (Android 10) update, the OEM aims to bring a much more refined experience.

Meizu started the Flyme OS 8.1 (Android 10) internal beta recruitment back in June. After a month, the OEM started pushing the internal beta update to some devices in the Meizu 16 series. However, the update was suspended due to a restart bug.

Now, it appears that Meizu has started rolling out the stable Flyme OS 8.1 (Android 10) update for Meizu 16X and Meizu Note 9. The information came from the official Meizu community where a Meizu engineer stated that the update is live for Meizu 16X and Meizu Note 9 on a small scale.


(Translated text)
16X and Note9 have been released on a small scale, please receive the upgraded experience of the pushed students.
The stable version of other models is still under development, so be patient and so on.

– Meizu Engineer


This might mean that it is a phased rollout and not all users will get it right away. Also, the comment stated that the update is still under development for other Meizu models. However, no official announcement has been made by the OEM yet.

It must be noted that Meizu promised the internal beta update for Meizu 16 series, Meizu 17 series, Meizu Note 9, Meizu Note 8, and Meizu X8. Also, Meizu Note 9 and Meizu 16X were among the devices that were supposed to get the Flyme OS 8.1 internal beta update by July-end.

With the latest update, it seems that Meizu has skipped the internal beta update and is now planning on rolling out the stable Flyme OS 8.1 (Android 10) update instead. Also, it is unclear whether more Meizu devices have received the stable Flyme OS 8.1 (Android 10) update or not.

Meanwhile, if you own a Meizu 16X or Meizu Note 9, you can check whether the update is available for your device or not. Also, feel free to drop a comment below if you have already installed the update on your device.
