Meizu, one of those Chinese phone makers offering devices with high-end features at pocket-friendly prices, is reportedly preparing the Meizu Pro 6, a sequel to the Pro 5 smartphone it released last year.
According to rumours making the rounds, the upcoming Meizu Pro 6 will come with abundant RAM that will rival what the awesome Vivo Xplay 5 Elite offers. It is expected to deliver highly robust performance with a new and exclusive processor under the hood. We present a roundup of the much that is known about the Pro 6 at this time.
Display and Camera
The Meizu Pro 6 is expected to come with a huge 5.7-inch display, which will be based on the awesome Super AMOLED technology. There is no consensus yet on what the screen resolution will be at this time.
Some sources are talking about Full HD (1,080p), while some say the screen will have a Quad HD (1,440p) resolution. Either way, this phablet promises exciting viewing. The touchscreen will be protected by robust Corning Gorilla Glass 4. There is also talk of it supporting 3D/Force Touch.
The Meizu Pro 6 may come with a heavy-duty 21-megapixel camera on the rear. The shooter is rumoured to have an f/2.0 aperture, dual-tone dual LED flash, phase detection laser autofocus, and OIS. It will have 2K video recording capability. Not much is known about the selfie snapper.
Hardware and Software
It was earlier speculated that the Meizu Pro 6 would be equipped with the same high-end Exynos 8890 processor found in the Samsung Galaxy S7. However, it has since emerged that the phablet will instead be powered by an exclusive MediaTek Helio X25 SoC.
The 10-core CPU, which Meizu helped to develop, features a three-cluster design with a dual-core Cortex-A72 and two quad-core Cortex-A53s. It fires on at speeds of up to 2.5 GHz.
Memory is another aspect where the Meizu Pro 6 will wow many users. It comes with a colossal 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of onboard storage. The handset is expected to also be made available in a model with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage.
The Meizu Pro 6 will reportedly run on Meizu’s Flyme 6.0 software, based on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). It is expected to feature fast charging technology and Hi-Fi 3.0.
For now there is no word on prices. The Meizu Pro 6 is expected in the last quarter of 2016.
