Meizu has finally unveiled their new flagship phone, the Meizu Pro 6 in China today. Flaunting an iPhone-inspired aluminum unibody, the new handset packs all the necessary specifications in a mid-budget price bracket. The major attraction it carries, however, is the pressure sensitive display, something which companies have started to mimic from Apple phones.
The Pro 6 comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD AMOLED display with 3D Press technology that is capable of recognizing multiple levels of pressure. There’s also 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection maintaining an impressive 0.715mm narrow frame and 70.8mm width. Under the hood, it runs on a Deca-Core MediaTek Helio X25 SoC along with 4GB of RAM and Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. On the back, Meizu has provided a 21-MP Sony IMX230 sensor with dual-tone Ring flash, laser auto-focus and phase detection autofocus (PDAF) for quick focus in just 0.07 seconds.
It runs on Meizu’s own Flyme OS 5.1 that based on Android 5.1, while Android marshmallow is yet to make an appearance. It supports Dual-SIM and there’s also a 5MP front facing a camera. With a 2560 mAh battery pack, getting a day out of this handset with all those power hungry cores is definitely going to be painful. Thankfully, mCharge 3.0 fast charging with a USB Type-C port is present which can charge up the device 2.4 times faster.There’s also a fingerprint scanner housed under the home button up front, that the company claims can unlock the phone in just 0.2 seconds. It has NXP’s SmartPA chip and Cirrus Logic CS43L36 DAC for an enhanced audio experience.
The Meizu Pro 6 will be available in three different colors including Gray, Gold, and Silver. It will cost 2499 RMB (US$ 386 / Rs. 25700 approx.) for the 32GB variant and 2799 RMB (US$ 432 / Rs. 28,790 approx.) the 64GB version. Available only in China as of now, it will go on sale from April 23rd, with India launch expected to happen later.
