The front camera on this device will be a 12-megapixel shooter and come paired with a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies and video chat. The device will come running on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 out of the box. There are no details available for pricing of the device but as we with most of the other Chinese flagship smartphones, it’s likely to be eye catching and available at a reasonable cost compared to other devices in its range.

It’s also worth noting that just a few days ago Meizu launched a mid-range smartphone called the Meizu m3e, packing great features such as a 1080p display, a 13-megapixel of camera, a Mediatek Helio P10 SoC, 3GB of RAM and a 3100 mAh capacity battery at an attractive price point of $196 (CNY 1299), and has already managed to receive more than 3 million registrations in less than 24 hours, even before the device goes on sale. Meizu is giving stiff competition to its Chinese rivals such as Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo, so it will be interesting to see whether this potential flagship will prove to be a success just like other recently launched Meizu devices.
