Meizu Pro 6 leaks promise that the smartphone will be the second device to come out of China with 6 GB of RAM under its premium hood.
Until recently, only the Xplay 5 Elite handset from Vivo holstered the record-breaking 6 GB of RAM.
Officially, Meizu is keeping mum about the impressive specs of its handset, but leaks continue to surface. A Gizchina report indicates that Meizu Pro 6 will land in two models: the first will come with an intimidating 6 GB of RAM and a generous 128 GB of standard storage space, while the second will only pack 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of default storage.
The preceding model, the Meizu Pro 5, also had two variants.
The first packed 3 GB of RAM coupled with 32 GB of standard storage, and sold for CNY 2,799 ($430). The larger model came with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of inbuilt storage and was available for CNY 3,099 ($476).
According to more insider information, the Meizu Pro 6 will use a full HD to display 1,080 x 1,920 resolution. The processing power will depend on an Exynos 8890 SoC. The device will benefit from nifty features, such as fast-charging capabilities and Hi-Fi 3.0 sound.
The Meizu Pro 6 will come with Flyme OS 6.0 pre-installed.
Should the rumors prove true, it will be the second time Meizu uses a Samsung-crafted processor. The former flagship from Meizu, the Pro 5, contained the octa-core Samsung Exynos 7420 processor. The Exynos 7420 is made of a quad-core 2.1 GHz Cortex-A57 and a four-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53. The Pro 5 also relied on a Mali-T760 MP8 graphics processing unit.
Ubuntu fans should know that no sooner than last month, Meizu also signed a deal with Canonical to release the Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition, its second Ubuntu smartphone.
The only difference between the Meizu Pro 5 smartphone and the Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition is that the latter runs Ubuntu OS (previously known as Ubuntu Touch OS) and not Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Meizu gave no official information about the launch date of Meizu Pro 6, but we will hopefully see the flagship rolling out during the second or third quarter of 2016. For now, you can check out what seems to be a real Meizu Pro 6 in the wild.
