Meizu will announce its Pro 6 flagship smartphone on April 13


Chinese smartphone maker Meizu officially busted the industry's productivity records. This week, it announced a very interesting new device, the powerful, metal-built, and affordable M3 Note. No later than next week, Meizu is straight up announcing the flagship smartphone! Originally expected sometime in May, the Meizu Pro 6 will be officially unveiled next Wednesday, April 13, in Beijing. The company is sending invites and teasing the phone on its Weibo account.

The recent past has seen the Meizu Pro 6 make the rounds on GFXBench and AnTuTu's benchmark databases in two flavors. At GFXBench, the phone was listed with a 4.6-inch screen with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, although we've heard rumors about 5.5 and 5.7-inch versions. There are two spec sheets variants as well, with one having a 2.0GHz deca-core MediaTek Helio X25 MT6797T processor and 3GB of RAM, and the other having the 2.5GHz deca-core MediaTek Helio X25 MT6797T processor with 4GB of RAM. Meizu has confirmed that the Helio X25 will remain an exclusive for the Pro 6 for a few months after its announcement, before MediaTek starts selling the chip to other smartphone makers. It's a departure from the Samsung-made hardware Meizu used in past phones, including the Pro 5, which is basically a Samsung Galaxy S6 on the inside.

Additionally, the Pro 6 will have the ARM Mali-T880 GPU, which is able to deliver up to 1.8 times the performance and as much as 40% higher energy efficiency compared to the Mali-T760 unit, found in devices like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Pro 6's predecessor. Storage-wise, the Pro 6 should offer a choice between 32GB and 64GB. The phone might feature a 20MP rear camera with an LED flash and a 5MP front cam.

Meizu is among the Chinese brands to be on the watch for. The manufacturer is highly consistent in improving its phones from generation to generation, managing to one-up itself every time. Next Wednesday, we'll see what the brand has brought to the table just six months after releasing the Pro 5.

Stay tuned for more updates from the Meizu’s official event on April 13.

I wish Meizu had gone with Exynos on the Pro 6 . I have Wifi issues on most Mediatek phones i have owned and not sure about this exclusive version. I feel the exclusivity may be a marketing stunt. Otherwise i love Meizu for their choice of HiFi audio components in their phones
