Meizu will be launching its next flagship smartphone, the MX6, and the official launch date has been revealed today. The Meizu MX6 will be announced on July 19, 2016 at the National Convention Centre in Beijing, China. The company has also teased an image of its Music Card music player in the update, which might point towards some interesting audio technology on the MX6.
Moreover, AnTuTu has revealed most of the specifications of the MX6. According to AnTuTu, the Meizu MX6 will be powered by a MediaTek Helio X20 (MT6797) processor with Mali-T880 GPU. Other features include a 12-megapixel rear-facing and a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper. Specifications of the Meizu MX6 were leaked earlier by Chinese prominent leaker @kjuma, and AnTuTu’s leaks lines up with that.
The Meizu MX6 is expected to come with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. At launch, the MX6 will boot Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Flyme OS. Meizu’s lead ROM designer Yi Peng has promised Android 6.0 Marshmallow update a few days after the phone’s launch. The MX6 might come with a 4,000 mAh battery and a fingerprint sensor, like the one on Meizu MX5.
Another leak also suggested that the smartphone will support fast charging, a common feature found in most flagship and higher mid-range smartphones these days. Interestingly, last year’s flagship from the company – the MX5 – is also expected to be upgraded with the MediaTek Helio X20 processor, and will be released as a newer variant.
Another rumour states that 32GB storage variant of the MX6 might be priced at $275 (Rs 19,000 approximately) while the 64GB variant would be sold for $305 (Rs 21,000 approximately).
