Meizu Pro 6: all new features and official images


Meizu may not be a household name in the United States, but the brand - which has its root in China and started in the electronics industry by making music players - has grown tremendously in the past few years. Popular in Asia, and even officially sold in some parts of Europe, Meizu has just brought out its latest phone: the Meizu Pro 6, and it's impressive.

Featuring a metal design with antenna bands that are shaped like eyebrows in a very peculiar fashion, this phone is easily remembered. A 5.2" Super AMOLED display with support for what Meizu calls 3D Press, an alternative to Apple's 3D Touch, this metal slab also features one of the latest chips by MediaTek and sports an interesting 21-megapixel camera with a 10-LED ring flash.

Bad news is that the phone will not be officially available in the United States. At least Meizu is not saying any such thing yet, but for those of you curious about the phone industry or willing to experiment with importing phones from China, here is a quick summary of all the essential new features on the Meizu Pro 6 and a gallery of all its official images.

According to gsmarena's review, Mi5 have 0.7nit minimum brightness. 0.7mm side bezels doesn't seem right and width of the device not especially narrow. It has same width with LG G2. I think that that 0.7mm is thickness of the black borders on white front.

Please, I don't want to hear anymore that Asians do not copy. Look how the antenna lines resemble the unconfirmed (but widely circulated) design of the antennas of the iPhone 7. Not only it is a blatant copy, but it also means that probably this phone was designed and put into production in a few months. When I see such things, I say I'd rather stick with trusted companies like Apple, Sony or at the very least Samsung or LG.

You make it sound like Meizu only been in business for a few years while they have been in the industry for over 13 years... Everyone is copying from everyone.. Whether you want this phone or not is up to the consumer

Sure, this phone has take a lot of clues from iPhone 6. Including slightly refined antenna line. But that unconfirmed iPhone 7 leak only surfaced a day less than a month ago, not few months like you suggested. Are you crazy enough to believe that Meizu developed and manufactured it in a large quantities within just a month? Its benchmark results can be found on Geekbench database dated just 9 days later that purported iPhone 7 leak.

They may have insider's information from the iPhone 7 supply chain. It's anyway manufactured in China. It's not the first time that the iPhone design gets copied by the Chinese before it appears. When Apple was about to made the change from the sharp, flat design of the iPhone 5 to rounded shape of the iPhone 6, the market flooded suddenly with smooth, rounded Chinese phones, before the iPhone 6 actually was officially introduced. I cannot even exclude Sony from this, who changed the flat chamfered frame of the Z2 to the completely rounded one of the Z3, based clearly only on speculation of what Apple would be doing with the iPhone 6 (as the Z3 was presented at the same time as the iPhone 6 and still it showed a shift to rounded frame).

Or they may just refined ugly antenna lines of iPhone 6. At this point we can't even be sure of legidity of the leak. I think they just tried to make an iPhone 6 looks alike with slightly different and improved design.

Look at the interface, and 3D touch like blaring and frosted glass like context menus. This is direct copy of everything iPhone introduced last year. I do like the slightly different antennae lines - they look better than iPhone 6/6s. But if your still in denial that this company blatantly copies Apple - I won't even waste my time to even argue with you. Funny though, when Apple does its stupid and ugly, when copycats do the exact same thing - "this is nice".

It still is superior to the iPhone.

Meizu - the champ of iphone design. Put an elongated dual camera in top left corner and u have the incoming iphone 7.

LOL I guess the Meizu designer team had only 1 or 2 minutes to decide what they have to change about the Iphone antenna lines in order to look different. How silly...
