Meiigoo has just announced that it has managed to sell over 15,000 Meiigoo S8 units in only five days. The Meiigoo S8 was made available for pre-order on October 8, and Meiigoo managed to rack in over 15,000 pre-orders across online and retail stores which are selling the phone. Having said that, the Meiigoo S8 is the company’s new flagship phone, which is inspired by the Samsung Galaxy S8, as you’ll easily notice based on its design and even its name.
Having said that, the company has just announced that the second wave of Meiigoo S8 pre-orders is ready to kick off, and will last until October 23, it seems. The company says that you can now pre-order this smartphone for only $165.99, while its full retail price is $199.99. That’s not all, though, if you pre-order the device, you will also get a gift bag worth $49.99. Meiigoo did not mention what sort of gifts will you be getting, but if they are the same as they were for the first pre-sales wave, then you’ll be getting a wide-angle lens, a fill light, a Bluetooth headset and a finger holder which you can attach on the back of the phone, and which can also serve as a stand for the device. You can pre-order this phone for the said price from GearBest as we speak, all you have to do is follow the link / banner which is included below this article.
The Meiigoo S8 is made out of metal and glass, while it sports a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. The device also comes with a dual camera setup on the back, and really thin bezels all around. The Meiigoo S8 sports a 6.1-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) display, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. The device is fueled by the MediaTek MT6750 64-bit octa-core processor, while it packs in a 3,300mAh battery. 13 and 5-megapixel shooters are included on the back of the Meiigoo S8, while you’ll find a single 5-megapixel snapper on the phone’s front side. Android 7.1 Nougat comes out of the box here, while the phone also includes two SIM card slots (2x nano SIM).
