After months of speculation, and a ton of leaks from a variety of sources, the Meizu Pro 6 has finally been unveiled to the world at a Beijing event. With groundbreaking specifications, the Pro 6 comes in a compelling package that far outshines several other flagship devices.
Meizu Pro 6 bundles a Super AMOLED display that stands at a 5.2 inches, which is backed by a 1080p resolution. Akin to the devices from Apple and Huawei manufacturers, Meizu has also incorporated its very own 3D Press display technology. This simply brings added software functionality whenever the display is placed lightly.
Under its hood, the Meizu Pro 6 runs on a sizable deca-core MediaTek Helio X25 chipset, which is equipped by a single package of multiple CPU cores including a dual core Cortex-A72 clocking at a speed of 2.5GHz, along with four A53s clocked at 1.4GHz, and four other A53s clocked at 2.0GHz. The CPU is specially built for the Meizu smartphone. In terms of GPU, the Meizu device packs a Mali-T880MP4 at a speed of 700MHz for tasks such as gaming among other. Its system's processor is complemented with a LPDDR3 RAM of 4GB. Although Meizu seems to offer no microSD card slot, its model devices will provide decent internal storage, as one comes with a 32GB, while the other option packs 64GB of internal memory. With two CPU cores, the handsets might prove to have a solid processing power while will be greatly facilitated with its more than average battery size of 2,560mAh.
Moving on to its camera technology, the new Meizu Pro 6 device features some similarities to its predecessor, the Pro 5. Bundling the same main camera setup of 21 MP Sony IMX230 camera image sensor, it includes autofocus technology such as the laser and phase Detection. Meizu has however stated that the lens assembly and module have been customized to reduce thickness, in addition to a new 10 -LED ring flash being introduced to the camera. The front selfie camera also remains the same with a 5 MP sensor to look forward to.
Aside from its new 3D Touch technology, Meizu Pro 6 packs a few other unique features as well, this includes a USB Type-C port, fingerprint reader that has been improved to a 0.2 second recognition time, and ability for fast charging, thanks to mcharge 3.0 technology. The device is powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, alongside its own FlyMe 5.6 user interface.
The smartphone is designed with a single metal uni-body, with its design quality resembling most of Meizu's series of handsets.
Because of the lack of noticeable changes, the Meizu Pro 6 generally seems like more of an improvement from its Meizu Pro 5 counterpart, rather an overall leap forward in the Meizu smartphone line-up. As for pricing, the much affordable option, the 32GB model is priced at $390, while the 64GB edition is retailing at a competitive price of $430.
