The well-received flagship Meizu MX5, which was made available in the U.S. via e-retailers like Amazon, will apparently get a successor soon in the form of MX6.
According to the update, the MX6 will be the first handset to come powered by MediaTek's Helio X20 chipset. This chip works in tandem with a solid deca-core CPU and the graphics side of thinks is taken care by Mali-T880 MP4 GPU.
Only recently, the same MediaTek chipset visited the Geekbench benchmark site scoring an impressive 7037 points in the "multi-core" test. This chip was presumed to be an early version. Even then, it was able to get the better of Apple A9, Snapdragon 810 and Exynos 7420 chipsets, Phone Arena reported.
This SoC is believed to give tough competition to the latest Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 chipsets. However, the pain point of Helio X20 is the single-core test result. It scored only 2094 points. The Apple A9, meanwhile, tallied a brilliant 2,500 points.
Technically, the Helio X20 comes with two Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.5 GHz, four Cortex-A53 cores running at 2.0 GHz and an additional four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.4 GHz. This core setup is apparently called as "tri-cluster.”
Moving on to the rumored Meizu MX6 specifications, the handset will reportedly carry a Full HD resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels with an unspecified display size. The hardware configurations will apparently be backed by a good 3 GB of RAM.
When it comes to memory configuration, the MX6 is believed to come equipped with 32 GB of built-in storage space. On the software front, as expected, Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS will run the device along with Meizu's Flyme UI.
Speaking of release date, the Meizu MX6 will apparently be launched later this year. The MX5, on the other hand, was launched in June 2015.
As always, readers are advised to take the reported MX6-related details with the proverbial pinch of salt as the company has not confirmed them yet.
