Meizu Pro 6 benchmarked by GFXBench, confirms use of deca-core CPU

Meizu Pro 6 benchmarked by GFXBench, confirms use of deca-core CPU
The Meizu Pro 6 is going to be the first phone to be equipped with MediaTek's powerful Helio X25 chipset. This means that the handset will carry a deca-core CPU under the hood. The device, which was mistaken by a Foxconn employee for the Apple iPhone 7, has just gone through the GFXBench benchmark site.

According to GFXBench, the Meizu Pro 6 will feature a 4.6-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Yes, the deca-core chipset is listed along with the Mali-T880 (MP4) GPU. 4GB of RAM is on board, with 32GB of native storage. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 20MP, with a 5MP snapper for selfies and video chats. Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

The Helio X25 has a slightly faster high performance cluster than the Helio X20. Instead of a 2.3GHz clock speed on the Cortex-A72 cluster found on the X20, the X25 runs at 2.5GHz. In addition, the clock speed on the Mali-T880 MP4 GPU on the Helio X25 is 850MHz. That compares to 780MHz for the same GPU used on the Helio X20.

Doesn't Meizu usually put the latest Exynos chip on its "Pro" phone? Isn't this like the mini version or something, especially since it has a 4.6 inch screen.

That Cpu on a compact screen like this is going to be top-tier especially in the hyped up antuntu.. The GPU though not top-tier though it's going to be good enough for this compact device...

The frame rates of the Pro 6 aren't bad even compared to the Pro 5, that being said I don't get why they are using the X25 over the E8890 or Sd820, maybe they are thinking of pricing the Pro 6 very aggressively because that's the only reason I can think of as to why a company's latest flagship would be less powerful than it's predecessor.

That suggests the Meizu Pro 6 will be cheaper rhan the previous Pro 5.

GFXBenchmark does that, it could be a 5inch, 5.5inch, 5.7 inch, but it will display 4.6inch.

I don't understand the naming. I thought anything should be bigger than the non pro. Why called a 4.6" phone a pro? As far as I know anything pro should be pro in every aspect.

This isn't the full fat pro 6, this is the mini, the top end pro 6 will have an 8890 in combination with a qHD SA display, 3500mAh battery ect, there was a roadmap for Meizu released that shows not only this device but the pro 6 you're interested in. I sadly can't post the link but pocketnow wrote an article on it.

How do you phonetically pronounce Meizu? Is it me-zoo? my-zoo? may-zoo?

4.6-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. ???

so it have 479dpi, which still lower than QHD on 5.1inch.. but I guess its the most compact FHD screen

I think FHD on 4.6 inch is not an overkill. I own a Galaxy Alpha and the display is definitely not sharp enough. IMO 400 PPI is the sweet spot for phones. The HTC One M7 comes close (FHD, 4.7) but I think this would be the smallest FHD display


Posts: 1168; Member since: Oct 05, 2015

thats because its an AMOLED screen, where ppi needs to be higher in order to look sharp

Still, I can say the same about my cousin's Z3 Compact.

You mean because of the pentile pixel arrangement. Not all AMOLED screens have a penile matrix, so your statement is categorically incorrect.

No it isn't, the smallest FHD displays used on a smartphone were of merely 4.5 inches, they were used on Sharp Aquos mini SHL24 and Aquos Serie mini SHV31. These two phones had extremely narrow bezels and were just 124 mm long and 63 mm wide.

There used to be some Sharp Aquos Mini phones with 4.5 FHD IZGO displays, so a 4.6 inch FHD display is nothing extraordinary.

Cool, sadly they aren't very popular outside of Japan. More manufacturers should have compact phones with FHD displays.

The funniest part about Sharp is that the reason they aren't popular outside Japan is because of stupid and clueless marketing team of Sharp, they have cool phones but they never sell them outside Japan, even though the phones are fully compatible on international networks.

Marketing team's too afraid to get out of their comfort zones. Either their execs don't want to or they don't have the budget to expand. Sharp aquos compact was a beast phone, at least meizu might be a good contender for the z compact and iphones with 4" displays.

Sharp also showcased a 4.1 inch 736ppi smartphone display with a extremely high resolution of 2560 x 1600. Their plans are to use it on their limited production Armani designed Aquos phone. Too bad that its availability will be limited to just Japan. Sharp's market policy seriously pisses me off.

I want to see the Mali-T880 MP16 used in the SoCs later this year But that's unlikely from MediaTek and Huawei Hopefully the Exynos in the Note 6 has it

it won't have a 4.6 inch display, every phones on GFXBench show 4.6inch as display size.

4.6" as their flagship is not possible. Regarding the fact that the Asian smartphone market is dominated by Phablets!

Meizu had to use the Mediatek processor this time in the Pro 6 because Mediatek made a big investment in the company. I won't be interested in the Pro 6 though unless the battery life is as good as the Pro 5, which is excellent. Extra speed does nothing for me.
