Meizu is one of the most interesting companies in the mobile industry these days. This company was quite unknown up until few year ago, and then they started growing, fast. Meizu has sold 4.4 million smartphones in 2014, while they've managed to ship 20.5 million units last year. The company has introduced three smartphones thus far in 2016, and all of them were announced last month. The Meizu PRO 6 is the most powerful smartphone the company has rolled out this year, but chances are it won't be the most powerful Meizu-branded device in 2016 considering Meizu is planning to release something even more powerful in the coming months, read on.

The Meizu PRO 6 is fueled by MediaTek's Helio X25 64-bit deca-core processor, but we've seen several rumors / leaks touting the Exynos 8890-powered variant of this smartphone which will launch at some point this year. The Meizu PRO 5 which was announced in September last year was fueled by the Exynos 7420, so the Exynos 8890 variant of Meizu PRO 6 certainly makes sense. That's not all though, Meizu's smartphone with a curved display leaked several times now, and even though we could assume that such a device will become a reality this year, we were not sure that will happen, until now. Mocha RQ, a China-based industry insider, has posted some information regarding Meizu's smartphone with a curved display. The source basically shared a screenshot in which he shows that Meizu's CEO, Huang Zhang (also known as Jack Wong), confirmed that the company is working on a curved display smartphone. That's not all though, Mr. Zhang also says that Flyme 6 is being developed for that handset, and that the phone will not be called Meizu PRO 6 Edge.

There you have it, the company's curved display smartphone is basically confirmed at this point, but we still don't know when will it land. We doubt this smartphone will land before July, and it is possible Meizu plans to release it in late Q3 or maybe even Q4 this year. The device might even be called Meizu PRO 7 in the end, but who knows. One thing is for sure, we'll see a ton of rumors and leaks regarding this device in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
