Meizu isn't about to let the rest of the world start announcing and releasing phones without having their own flagship refreshed as well. The Meizu PRO 6 is now official, and will be available starting this spring with some very high-end specs.
The new flagship phone from the Chinese company packs a smaller 5.2-inch super AMOLED screen, but with much more technology packed underneath. But not at the behest of battery-life. They've paired the MediaTek Helo X25 deca-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz with the Mali-T880, the flagship ARM-specified graphics chip. The two could potentially be a very potent combination, especially in terms of power savings with the way that the MediaTek can switch on tri-core clusters depending on the task at hand. It'll be able to draw from a 2560-mAh battery.
It had been rumored for some time that we'd see a massive 6GB of RAM, but instead, they've opted for a more reasonable, and realistic, 4GB and have paired that with either 32 or 64GB of internal storage. It's also can be expanded via the microSD slot as well, in case you want to keep your whole life on your phone. For the camera, they've gone with the tried and true Sony IMX 230 sensor at 13MP, which means that it's theoretically capable of 4K video recording and quite a few auto-focus points for taking photos faster. The front camera is a 5MP model of unknown type.
Also included on the phone are a fingerprint sensor and something that's known as Meizu Press 3D, which sounds like it's their version of Apple's 3D touch. It's coming to the west, though that release date is still illusory at the moment. We can expect around $500 or so once it finally hits the streets in the US, though.
