Meizu had introduced three new smartphones back in April, the Meizu M3, M3 Note and the PRO 6 flagship. This China-based company is expected to introduce a couple of more devices this year, and the Meizu MX6 handset seems to be the next in line. Its predecessor was announced back in July 2015, and it sported a really compelling spec sheet, while it wasn’t that expensive at all. The Meizu MX5 shipped with a 5.5-inch fullHD display, 3GB of RAM and the Helio X10 64-bit octa-core processor, which was MediaTek’s flagship processor back then. The MX5 also came with a full metal body, and its 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera was also quite capable.
That being said, the company has opted to introduce the PRO 6 before the MX6 this year for some reason, and we’ve recently reported that the company plans to host an event next month in order to announce a new smartphone. We immediately assumed that this might be the Meizu MX6, and thanks to an anonymous (reliable) source, we now have some exclusive material to share with you. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see the upcoming Ubuntu Edition of the Meizu MX6 handset. These images reveal that the phone will be priced at €399, while they also confirm that the device will be fueled by the Helio X20 64-bit deca-core processor manufactured by MediaTek. This SoC ship with the Mali T880 GPU for graphics rendering, and is almost identical to the Helio X25 which was included in the Meizu PRO 6, the Helio X20 ships with a lower clock rate than the Helio X25, but the SoC is otherwise identical.
Now, you can also get a good look at the design of the device by looking at these images, the Meizu MX6 will resemble its predecessors quite a bit, though that was to be expected. The phone will be made out of metal it seems, and Meizu has opted to include their ‘mBack’ physical home key below the display once again. This is, as you can see, the Ubuntu-powered variant of the device, but as you all know, Meizu released both the Flyme-powered and Ubuntu-powered variants of the Meizu MX4 and PRO 5 thus far, and those devices were identical on the outside, so you can basically expect this very same phone to land with Android, and Meizu’s Flyme UI on top of it.
