Meizu has introduced their newest flagship handset last month, the Meizu PRO 6. This smartphone is a direct successor to the Meizu PRO 5 phablet which has been introduced back in September last year, and it is fueled by MediaTek’s Helio X25 64-bit deca-core processor. This SoC is quite powerful, but many consumers have been wondering whether the company plans to introduce an Exynos-powered PRO 6 variant. The Exynos 8890-powered Meizu PRO 6 surfaced the other day in China, and now we have some additional news to share with you, read on.
Several rumors surfaced in the last couple of weeks claiming that Meizu is planning to release a smartphone with a curved display, similar to the Galaxy S7 Edge and the Vivo XPlay 5 which have been introduced earlier this year, as you probably already know. Well, according to a new rumor, the Exynos 8890-powered Meizu PRO 6 model will sport such a display. This information comes from ‘Mocha RQ’, a China-based industry insider. The source has also shared the expected price for this smartphone, he said that the phone might cost around 3,000 Yuan ($460), which means it will be somewhat more expensive than the regular Meizu PRO 6 variant.
What about its specs? Well, that info hasn’t been shared, but we do expect this device to be almost identical to the regular PRO 6 in terms of specs, aside from its processor, of course. It is, however, possible that Meizu opts to use a larger display in this device, and essentially release a phablet device, but we’re only guessing at this point. Either way, the Exynos 8890-powered Meizu PRO 6 is expected to ship with 4GB of RAM, 21-megapixel camera on the back, a fullHD (1920 x 1080) AMOLED display, and a full metal unibody build. So, when can we expect this device to launch? Well, the release date hasn’t been mentioned just yet, so we can only guess at this point. Several rumors surfaced recently saying that various Chinese smartphone manufacturers intend to release curved display smartphones in the third quarter of this year, so we’re guessing this announcement is still not as close as we’d like it to be.
