Meizu's 2016 portfolio revealed: leaked roadmap shows 7 handsets, pricing included
posted by Paul K. / Mar 23, 2016, 4:36 AM
The company's smartphones range from the entry-level Blue Charm to the heavy-hitting PRO 5, with its 2015 portfolio being made up of a total of 6 smartphones (technically, 5, since the m1 Note was updated to an m2 Note just 5 months after the original's announcement). A recent leak shows us what Meizu allegedly has in store for us in 2016. This time around, we will get 7 bargain-priced handsets, thanks to two new entries to to the portfolio – an MX6 Mini and a PRO 6 Mini. As per the leak, these two will bear similar hardware as their heavy-hitting, bigger counterparts, but will only have 4.7-inch displays. Here are all the upcoming smartphones, some notes about their hardware, and their pricing. Please bear in mind that these are prices for China, and exporting the handsets to somewhere else in the world will probably cost a bit more. Also, as with any leak, this information comes with a bag of freshly refined salt. Especially since the leak points to a UFS 3.0 tech, which is currently non-existant (UFS 2.0 is what Samsung's flagships use, and it is, indeed, super-fast).

Wow, QHD for 4.7" in the PRO 6 Mini... I'm rarely say this, but this IS an overkill

UFS 3.0 doesn't exist. It's UFS 2.0

i think it means this To achieve the highest performance and most power efficient data transport, JEDEC UFS aligns with industry–leading specifications from the MIPI® Alliance to form its Interconnect Layer. This collaboration continues with UFS v2.0, which supports the M-PHY® Version 3.0 specification and the UniProSM Version 1.6 specification.

Interesting information about the upcoming Meizu Pro 6 - 5.5 instead of 5.7 like the Pro 5? Also, recent news saiit would have a ramped up Mediatek processor - Helio X2.5 , now this is saying Samsung again. I prefer the latter and I also would like to see it in 5.5 but no need for the QHD screen if it impacts battery life - more important to me.
