By most accounts, the Meizu PRO 6 was a great device which boasted flagship-level specs for a reasonable price. Because the Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer managed to deliver such a smartphone to end users, many people were excited by the prospect of the Meizu PRO 6 Plus, a larger, slightly upgraded version of the company's latest flagship. We've been hearing rumors of the Meizu PRO 6 Plus being slated for an immediate release since late May, but the device has yet to hit the market. In fact, some recent reports even suggested that the Chinese company canceled the said phone and that the next Meizu-branded flagship that's hitting the market is the Meizu PRO 7.
Well, if latest developments are to be believed, those reports were false. Namely, the Meizu PRO 6 Plus listing just surfaced on Geekbench. According to the benchmark's online database, the said device is powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 1.48 GHz, as well as 4 GB of RAM. Regarding the latter, it's interesting that Geekbench states how less than 200 MB out of the said 4 GB of RAM are system-reserved. If the Meizu PRO 6 Plus ends up boasting the Exynos 8890 system-on-chip as latest rumors suggest, it's curious how the Chinese OEM decided to reserve less than 5% of its RAM for the Mali-T880 GPU and the operating system itself. For comparison, the Galaxy S7 Edge which features comparable specs reserves more than 500 MB of RAM for the Android OS and its graphics chip. Other than that, the Geekbench listing reveals that the tested Meizu PRO 6 Plus was running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but that's pretty much all there is to it.

As for the device itself, the Meizu PRO 6 Plus is rumored to sport a 5.7-inch QHD display, 32 GB of internal storage, and a 12-megapixel rear shooter. The smartphone is allegedly slated for release in early 2017, but take that rumor with a pinch of salt because this is one of those phones that's been "launching" for half a year already. However, Meizu might reveal more tomorrow as the company is scheduled to hold an event to commemorate the release of the Meizu X and Flyme 6 GUI.
