Meizu's 2016 portfolio revealed: leaked roadmap shows 7 handsets, pricing included
Meizu is a company hailing from China, popular for offering smartphones with pretty stellar hardware for bargain prices. And, unlike its competitor Xiaomi, Meizu has no issue with shipping its handsets worldwide, so users needn't hunt for 3rd party retailer shops. It's the combination between these two things that make the company somewhat popular among those who are passionate about smartphones.

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).
