Chinese tech giant Meizu on Wednesday will introduce the long-awaited Xiaomi Mi5 rival, Meizu Pro 6. Although, leaks and rumors surrounding this device have been rife since the beginning of 2016, the latest news is that a credible Russian source has uploaded key details about the flagship.
Alleged high-resolution, live photos of the Meizu Pro 6 showcase the super-thin exterior in pale white hue with a metallic frame running through the corners of the device.
Spec-wise, the Pro 6 will reportedly feature a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display, complemented by 1080p screen resolution. Meizu has apparently packed 3D Touch-like capabilities with the handset. However, GSM Arena says this feature is compatible only with native applications and hence, it may not be as efficient as the one seen in Apple's iPhone 6s series.
When it comes to camera configuration, the Meizu Pro 6 is believed to sport a solid 21 MP rear-facing sensor with LED flash and laser autofocus. To top it off, a 5 MP front-facing snapper will also be part of the handset.
Under the hood, the Meizu Pro 5 successor will apparently come powered by MediaTek's MT6797T (Helio X25) SoC, working in tandem with a deca-core CPU. Out of the 10 cores, two of the Cortex-A72 cores run at up to 2.5 GHz, while four Cortex-A53 cores are clocked at up to 2 GHz, and extra four Cortex-A53 cores run at up to 1.4 GHz. While ARM's Mali-T880MP4 takes care of the graphics, the entire configuration is backed by 4 GB of RAM.
The Meizu Pro 6 will come equipped with 32 GB of internal storage space. However, there is no microSD card slot to facilitate expansion. This device will reportedly support dual SIM. On the software front, without any surprise, Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS will run the smartphone with Meizu's custom Flyme OS on board.
The Meizu Pro 6 reportedly made a silent visit to the AnTuTu benchmark testing site and it apparently amassed 91,165 points. In comparison, the predecessor Pro 5 scored 86,322 points. But, the main rival Xiaomi Mi 5 tallied a strong 136,875 points, even trumping the power-packed Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge's 134,599 points, GSM Arena noted.
Readers should note that Meizu has not confirmed any information so far.
