Exynos 8890 powered version of the Meizu Pro 6 to be priced at $460 USD?

Exynos 8890 powered version of the Meizu Pro 6 to be priced at $460 USD?
When the Meizu Pro 6 was unveiled a month ago, the device was powered by a MediaTek Helio X25 chipset which includes a deca-core CPU. Following a benchmark test which showed the Pro 6 with the Exynos 8890 SoC under the hood, further details about that variant have been discovered on China's Weibo social networking site.

According to the post, not only will this version of the Pro 6 employ the same chipset found on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, it also will sport a curved screen on both sides of the display. This revised Pro 6 model will be a little more pricier than the 64GB model using the deca-core Helio X25 chip. While that phone will be priced at the equivalent of $433 USD, the unit that features the Exynos 8890 SoC will reportedly carry a $460 USD price tag.

There are some similarities between both the original model and the one with the Exynos chip inside. Both versions carry 4GB of RAM and weigh 160 grams. You might recall that the Meizu Pro 5 was driven by the same Exynos 7420 SoC that was used on the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

So far, Meizu has yet to announce a release date for any Pro 6 model.

Can wait to see tests of this phone and see how it be chest vs the S7 with the same chip. I want to see if TouchWiz actually plays as huge a role in performance vs a phone with the same CPU without it. So.this will be very interesting. So.o assets if they bench the same and it's considered fast, that means TouchWiz is not what people claim. They need to bring that phone to the US. Apple would be in serious trouble and Samsung would have some difficulty too. But at East Samsung offers alternative with similar pricing, while Apple doesn't. Sounds like a nice device. I wanna try the MIUI.

Mi5 is faster than S7 (SD820) on benchmark, but real life performance is similar (but S7 have better and faster camera, better design, faster charge time, and bunch of TW feature --- its subjective of course, lol) btw its FlymeOS, MIUI is xiaomi's

What if we flash the s7 with aosp rom?

Benchmark performance has nothing to do with ROM, more to do with kernel.

no way this would be price that low. they can sell X25 for 2499 yuan. I am expecting 3499 yuan (540 USD).

Only $27 price diff between both versions? That's a No-brainer, ofcourse ppl would choose the Exynos version with curved screens!

Should had called this phone the transformer; it doesn't know what it wants to be, an iPhone, S7, or HTC device. It certainly taking from aforementioned devices
