Meizu unleashes its latest beast: the Pro 6

Meizu Pro 6

I’m not going to lie. I’ve seriously waited for this device for a while now. Meizu yesterday launched its flagship, the Pro 6. The Pro 6 joins the Android big leagues making it even more difficult to choose from the mass variety of device powerhouses.


The Meizu Pro 6 is powered by the deca-core MediaTek Helio X25 processor, which Meizu claims to be the first deca-core in the market. The monstrous processor is supported by 4GB of RAM. The device is 7.25mm thick and has the thinnest and prettiest antennas seen yet.


The screen is a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED Full HD display and the camera is a 21MP Sony IMX230 sensor, though Meizu says it has customised the construction of the entire module and lens assembly to make the device thinner. Focus speed on the camera has been reduced to 0.7 seconds through phase-detect auto-focus and new image-processing algorithms. Weirdly enough, the device has a 10 LED flash that isn’t above the camera but instead frames the laser focusing assist, which now focuses up to 2 metres away.


The Pro 6 comes with Meizu’s own 3D Press technology to give competition to Apple’s 3D Touch. Other specs on the device include a surprisingly small 2,560mAh battery, USB Type-C charging, dual-sim capabilities and integrated high-temperature and short circuit protection. The device also has Cirrus Logic CS43L36 chip for audio.


The Meizu Pro 6 will release in 32GB and 64GB variants priced at 2,499 Chinese Yuan (about Dh1,415) and 2,799 Chinese Yuan, respectively. During the launch of the m3 note in Beijing, we did get confirmation that the Meizu brand is coming to the UAE, but whether the international variant of the device is coming along remains to be seen.
