Meizu has just confirmed via the company’s official Flyme OS forum that Flyme OS 6 is coming to international consumers soon. Meizu actually releases both Chinese and global variants of its Flyme OS Android-based skin, and while the Chinese version has been available for a number of devices for a while now, global one is still missing, despite the fact that Meizu promised that it will start rolling updates to existing phones a while back, read on.
Meizu basically apologized to consumers via its post, saying that it took longer than they realized to properly test the update, despite the fact over 300+ global beta testers joined in and helped Meizu’s employees. Having said that, Meizu has confirmed that Flyme 6 is coming to existing Meizu-branded phones in July, well, the company will start rolling out updates in July. The Meizu M3 Note and Meizu M2 will get the update first it seems, and the following devices will get it soon after: the Meizu MX4, MX4 Pro, M1 Note, M2 Note, MX5, PRO 5, PRO 6, M3s, MX6, U10, U20, M3E, M3 Max and PRO 6 Plus. The company also said that the Meizu M5, M5s and M5 Note will also get the update, but it will be released later this year, since those devices are relatively new to the market.
There you have it, now we know when is the update coming, and which devices will get it first. Having that in mind, Meizu did introduce a global Meizu-branded smartphone today which is coming with Flyme 6 out of the box, the Meizu M5s. If you’d like to read more about that, click here. Now, we’ve already talked about Flyme 6, it’s a relatively unique take on Android, and Meizu did introduce a number of improvements compared to Flyme 5. The company often talks about its ‘One Mind AI’ which is built into Flyme 6, and it essentially learns how you use your device, and allocates memory and other resources based on your usage, in order to provide you with the best performance possible. All in all, stay tuned, global Flyme 6 updates are coming soon to a bunch of Meizu-branded smartphones.
