Meizu has been one of the fastest-growing smartphone manufacturers in the last couple of years. Just to put things into perspective, this company has sold 4.4 million smartphones back in 2014, and that was considered a huge success for them. Well, they’ve managed to ship out 20 million handsets last year, which is a huge improvement, obviously. Anyhow, the company has introduced an Ubuntu-powered handset during this year’s MWC, but the vast majority of their lineup consists out of Android-powered devices.
The Meizu PRO 5 is the company’s current flagship. This smartphone was introduced back in September last year, and is the only non-Samsung device fueled by the Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core SoC. We’ve already seen some rumors and leaks when it comes to its successor, the PRO 6, even though that handset is not expected to arrive before Q3 or Q4 this year. The company’s VP has even confirmed that the PRO 6 will ship with a Force Touch display yesterday, and now we have a rather interesting leak to share with you. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see some leaked PRO 6 concept images. Now, the source mentions that the PRO 6 could end up looking like this, though keep in mind this is not the actual leak of the device itself. As you can see, this smartphone actually sports a Galaxy S7 Edge-like curved display (Dual Edge), and it looks quite sleek. A recent report claimed that Chinese manufacturers intend to release such smartphones this year, and Vivo has actually already released their Xplay 5 handset which sports the ‘Dual Edge’ display.
These leaked concept images actually show off a sleek looking device which does resemble its predecessor to an extent. The multifunctional physical ‘mBack’ home button is available here yet again, and the general shape of the device (at least looking at it from the front) is similar to the PRO 5. The Meizu PRO 6 will quite probably going to be fueled by the unannounced Exynos 8870 SoC by Samsung, and you can expect Android Marshmallow to ship out of the box here, with Meizu’s Flyme OS available on top of it. We’ll let you know when additional info leaks, and until then, take a look at the gallery down below.
