Flyme 6 is the latest version of Meizu’s custom UI which ships pre-installed on Android when the company’s smartphones are concerned, and it seems like Flyme 7 is right around the corner. It has been over a year since Meizu announced Flyme 6, so it’s about time Flyme 7 steps in its shoes, and if the latest leaked info is to be believed, Flyme 7 will arrive on February 24, as you can see in the first image provided down below. That image comes from IT Home, and it seems to be some sort of a teaser for the release of Flyme 7.
The second image in the gallery down below will show you what seems to be a screenshot from a beta version of Flyme 7. This new version of Flyme will, allegedly, improve power efficiency of devices it gets installed on, though we still do not know on which version of Android is it based, Android Nougat or Android Oreo. It seems like we will see some UI adjustments as well, though we do not really get to see other parts of the UI, so cannot comment on that any further, everything that leaked is shown in the aforementioned screenshot. Flyme 7 will also add something called ‘mQuick button’, and the company’s OneMind AI will jump to version 2.0. Cloud backup option will be included in this version as well, and chances are we will get quite a few additional features that were not mentioned just yet. Considering that the new version of Flyme is expected to arrive in one month, it’s quite possible that we’ll see more leaks in the coming weeks, so hopefully parts of the Flyme 7’s UI will leak as well.
As some of you already know, Meizu actually restructured its business last year, it basically split the company in three, and the company’s Flyme division is in charge of handling the company’s software, including Flyme UI for smartphones. Meizu introduced the Meizu M6S quite recently, its new mid-range smartphone, which is considerably different than the company’s previous offerings. The Meizu M6S comes with thinner bezels, a side-facing fingerprint scanner, and a multifunctional ‘Halo button’ which replaces the company’s physical mBack key. The Meizu M6S will probably be one of the first smartphones to get Flyme 7, and the upcoming Meizu 15 Plus may actually ship with Flyme 7 out of the box.
