Meizu CEO teases upcoming Pro 6 smartphone
The 5.7-inch smartphone will be officially announced next week, but that hasn't stopped the manufacturer from posting more images on the upcoming flagship.

It was only just last week when Meizu launched the affordable M3 Note smartphone with an octa-core processor, fingerprint reader, and 5.5-inch FHD display for a bargain price of just under 800 Yuan or roughly 110 Euros. Now, CEO Huang Zhang has posted teaser images for the upcoming Meizu Pro 6 on social networks.

Meizu Pro 6: Not an iPhone

When the Pro 6 first leaked onto Chinese social networks, users immediately began comparing the alleged design to the iPhone. Meizu CEO responded directly to the allegations by claiming that the Pro 6 will be even slimmer than the new iPhone and that the leaked chassis was only an engineering sample not representative of the final product.

Hardware specifications remain a mystery for the Pro 6. While current specifications point to a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED QHD (2560 x 1440) touchscreen, more recent rumblings are also suggesting 3D Touch capabilities as well. Nearly all Android smartphones thus far are not equipped with the necessary hardware to support the feature with the recent Huawei Mate S being the notable exception.

Meizu Pro 6 features

Digging deeper into rumors will find specifics like a deca-core Helio X25 SoC from MediaTek that was only recently announced last month. Beyond the brand new SoC, the rest of the specifications are the standard flagship fare including 4 GB RAM, 32 GB eMMC, and the 12 MP and 5 MP rear and front cameras, respectively. The Chinese manufacturer is expected to formally reveal the Pro 6 smartphone this coming April 13 in Beijing, China.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
