Meizu's 2016 portfolio revealed: leaked roadmap shows 7 handsets, pricing included
Meizu is a company hailing from China, popular for offering smartphones with pretty stellar hardware for bargain prices. And, unlike its competitor Xiaomi, Meizu has no issue with shipping its handsets worldwide, so users needn't hunt for 3rd party retailer shops. It's the combination between these two things that make the company somewhat popular among those who are passionate about smartphones.

The company's smartphones range from the entry-level Blue Charm to the heavy-hitting PRO 5, with its 2015 portfolio being made up of a total of 6 smartphones (technically, 5, since the m1 Note was updated to an m2 Note just 5 months after the original's announcement). A recent leak shows us what Meizu allegedly has in store for us in 2016. This time around, we will get 7 bargain-priced handsets, thanks to two new entries to to the portfolio – an MX6 Mini and a PRO 6 Mini. As per the leak, these two will bear similar hardware as their heavy-hitting, bigger counterparts, but will only have 4.7-inch displays. Here are all the upcoming smartphones, some notes about their hardware, and their pricing. Please bear in mind that these are prices for China, and exporting the handsets to somewhere else in the world will probably cost a bit more. Also, as with any leak, this information comes with a bag of freshly refined salt. Especially since the leak points to a UFS 3.0 tech, which is currently non-existant (UFS 2.0 is what Samsung's flagships use, and it is, indeed, super-fast).

Exynos 8890 and UFS 3.0 starting at $431??
Wow, I wouldn't even care if it would look like an iPhone copy.

nice move to battle with xiaomi's Mi5 and OnePlus3
(kinda hope Moto X 2016 use SD820 or SD8890 for $500, lol)

I actually like iphone copies because IMHO iphone designs are great but IOS makes it a no no for me, not to talk of the ridiculous pricing of Iphones.

what do you mean if it would look like and iphone copy, it is look at it other than the samsung home button its a 6s.
with the specs it has thats a real deal, could you imagine if it had stock android no bloat instant money maker.

Wow, QHD for 4.7" in the PRO 6 Mini... I'm rarely say this, but this IS an overkill

but X25 performance is far from SD8890.. (at least on paper, since it only have 2 A72 core)

I knew Meizu wouldn't quit using exynos for their flagship device. The Pro 6 is shaping up to be one hell of a phone, maybe Meizu will come up with a somewhat original design this year.

UFS 3.0 doesn't exist. It's UFS 2.0

Yeah so does that make this leak a FAKE probably because no company would put that on a legit road map for their products.

Probably just a typo.

It doesn't exist yet, Meizu Pro devices are released in the fall, so there's plenty of time for UFS 3.0 to be released

i think it means this To achieve the highest performance and most power efficient data transport, JEDEC UFS aligns with industry–leading specifications from the MIPI® Alliance to form its Interconnect Layer. This collaboration continues with UFS v2.0, which supports the M-PHY® Version 3.0 specification and the UniProSM Version 1.6 specification.

What happen to the Meizu president saying QHD was stupid(or something like that lol) and now Meizu is going to produce a 4.7in QHD device that's some epic overkill right there ha.

I am really hoping their Flyme 5 comes out of beta and gets released internationally for the M2 Note.

X25 and QHD don't belong in the same sentence(including this one lol) and definitely not in the same phone together.

Interesting information about the upcoming Meizu Pro 6 - 5.5 instead of 5.7 like the Pro 5? Also, recent news saiit would have a ramped up Mediatek processor - Helio X2.5 , now this is saying Samsung again. I prefer the latter and I also would like to see it in 5.5 but no need for the QHD screen if it impacts battery life - more important to me.

The PRO 6 is on GFXBench already with FHD and X25 SoC. So this "leak" is BS.
