Meizu Pro 6s confirmed to pack a MediaTek chipset, looks exactly like the Pro 6


Chinese handset maker Meizu is expected to launch a new smartphone on October 31, and all sources point to a Pro 6s reveal. The device seems to have been designed and redesigned numerous times, but the most recent information we have suggests the Pro 6s won't be powered by an Exynos or Qualcomm chipset.

If you're familiar with the Meizu Pro 6s, then you probably know that a few live pictures leaked last week indicate that the smartphone will feature a deca-core MediaTek MT6796 processor inside. This particular SoC (system-on-chip) hasn't been officially unveiled, so it must be something new and exclusive to the Pro 6s, at least for a limited time.

Today, Meizu's VP, Li Nan confirmed that the company's upcoming Pro 6s will definitely be powered by a MediaTek chipset, though he did not say anything else about the processor inside.

The company's official also said that the Helio X25 chipset inside the Meizu Pro 6 is more than enough to handle everyday tasks, which could be one of the reasons the Chinese handset maker has decided to go for a MediaTek SoC for the Pro 6s as well.

Since Meizu is not particular fond of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8xx SoCs, it's unlikely that there will be any Pro 6s variants powered by this specific class of chipsets.

One other aspect confirmed by Meizu's VP is the fact that the both the Pro 6 and Pro 6s smartphones will look the same, so it will be hard to differentiate them when put side by side.

Aside from the use of the MediaTek chipset, we also know the Pro 6s will come with Meizu's mCharge 3.0 technology, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. The rest of the phone's specs will be either leaked by October 31 or confirmed on launch day.
