Is this the Meizu Pro 6 Plus showing off a dual curved-edge screen?
Meizu will be holding a media event on September 3rd to introduce a brand new handset. There is speculation that the new phone will be the Meizu Pro 6 Plus. The Meizu Pro 6 was unveiled back in April and released the following month. Now, a pair of renders reveal the front and back of what is claimed to be a premium version of that model.

Based on the renders, we can see that unlike the Pro 6, the Meizu Pro 6 Plus will sport a dual curved-edge screen. A device with the model number Meizu M96 was run through the AnTuTu benchmark test. There is speculation that this is the Pro 6 Plus. If so, the display will feature a 1440 x 2560 resolution and the Exynos 8890 SoC will be under the hood. Yes Virginia, that is the same chipset that powers Samsung's current high-end models such as the Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, Samsung Galaxy S7 Active and the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. This means that the Meizu Pro 6 Plus could be equipped with a quad-core CPU and the Mali-T880 MP12 GPU.

4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 12MP camera graces the rear of the device, while the front-facing 5MP shooter takes selfies and handles video chats. Pricing and availability should be revealed during the September 3rd event. The long rumored Meizu smartwatch might also see the light of day during that event. Last month, we passed along leaked photos of what allegedly is the watch. Reportedly, the timepiece will be powered by the Rockchip RK6321 SoC with two Cortex A5 cores. That would seem to rule out Android Wear as the OS for the device.

Coping Samsung. They know a beautiful design when they see one.

At least they tried to be different with their camera design... No major OEM is as guilty of copying this year as OnePlus. The Three is basically a mashup of Galaxy S6/One M9/iPhone 6. A truly bland, unoriginal design.

IMO the OnePlus 3 looks more like a metal Galaxy S4 than anything else.

I really don't like the fact Samsung licensed out or is selling it curved display tech to other outfits. I know it means millions of extra dollars in Samsung's pockets and I like they want to share their innovations with others, unlike some company's we know. But the curve display would have been a nice Samsung Galaxy distinct print for their phones. But the one good thing about increasing their production of the curved glass to other, will drive the cost down. Will also make it so mid-range and low-end phones will also have the same design in a few years without a price increase (or at least not $100 increase). But you know once phones go up, they rarely go back down, unless they aren't selling. They all need to work at getting pricing backdown. Because $600 for a phone was more than enough. But $900 is ridiculous even with monthly payment plans being available.

I know it can not ever happen but if people would just stop buying the high end phones (I am guilty too) the price might would come down.
