The developers at Meizu have faced many problems preventing the firmware update. Therefore, the Chinese brand will not ship the X8 and Note 8 with Android 10 support.

Back in early summer, Meizu management announced that it wants to update two-year-old smartphones with Android 8 Oreo to the current version of the OS. Subsequently, the plans had to be abandoned, since the development was accompanied by the loss of IMEI and baseband. In addition to randomly disabling Bluetooth and the fingerprint scanner, programmers also noticed system stability issues in the X8 and Note. According to company employees, these bugs were not fixed.
In an effort to make amends to customers, Meizu announced the Flyme 220.127.116.11A update for beta testers, which will bring the phones back to working order. The X8 is known to come standard with a 6.15-inch FHD + display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz, and a 12-megapixel sensor capable of 4K footage. As for the Note 8, it boasts a 6-inch screen, an 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chipset and a 12MP + 5MP camera.
