Meizu has introduced three new smartphones last month, the Meizu M3, M3 Note and PRO 6. These three devices are also the only handsets that were announced by Meizu thus far this year. The company has released the Meizu M3 Note in India earlier today, and the Meizu MX6 is expected to launch in the coming months. Interesting enough, the Exynos 8890-powered variant of the Meizu PRO 6 surfaced recently, so it seems like the company’s flagship will become even more powerful in the future.
Speaking of company’s smartphones, we’ve seen plenty of Meizu leaks in the first quarter of this year, and several of them suggested Meizu is working on a smartphone with a curved display, similar to the Galaxy S7 Edge actually. This basically means that Meizu might join the likes of the Vivo XPlay 5, a Chinese device which also sports such a curved display. Anyhow, a new leak surfaced quite recently, and shares quite a few images of a Meizu-branded device which sports a ‘Dual Edge’ curved display. Truth be said, these images aren’t exactly HD, but they’re clear enough to show off a device which sports a curved display, and runs Meizu’s Flyme OS. The phone resembles company’s previous offerings, especially the Meizu PRO 5. The physical home button is placed below the display, and as you can see, the bezels are basically non-existent on the sides. We’ve seen similar leaks to this, so it’s becoming a pattern at this point. The question remains, however, which device are we looking at here? Will this be a new Meizu PRO 6 variant, or is this maybe the upcoming Meizu MX6? Will Meizu release a completely new smartphone line in order to introduce their first smartphone with a curved display? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see, won’t we.
Meizu isn’t exactly the only China-based smartphone manufacturing company that has such plans, various reports surfaced suggesting that Xiaomi, Huawei and Gionee are also working on curved display smartphones, and that all of those companies will release them before the end of this year, probably even before the third quarter ends. We’ll see how accurate those reports are, stay tuned.
