Meizu will announce its Pro 6 flagship smartphone on April 13
The Pro 6 comes exactly six months after its predecessor, powered by an exclusive MediaTek chipset.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.
