A new rumor out of China is claiming that the upcoming Meizu MX6 smartphone will be made official next month – June 20 to be precise. That’s broadly in-line with the already-rumored H2 2016 launch time-frame for the device.
Meizu has introduced three news devices last month, including their PRO 6 flagship. That being said, this China-based company is expected to announce their sixth-gen MX handset, the Meizu MX6. This smartphone has been rumored for quite some time now, and judging by what we’ve seen thus far, it will certainly going to be inferior to the recently released Meizu PRO 6, but it will still be quite a powerful device.
Usually, MX series smartphones are released around June-July period. It looks like the company is going to continue the tradition this year as well, as the release is expected to be on June 20. If true, this would make nearly four smartphone launches, all in different lineups in a matter of 3 months. That’s pretty aggressive even for a Chinese smartphone maker.
As for the specs, earlier leaks have said that the phone will feature 3GB RAM and 4GB RAM variants. The former could start at $275 and the latter at around $305, which would put it in competition with the Xiaomi Mi 5. But inside, this device is said to feature Mediatek’s Helio X20 instead of X25 chip that powers the Pro 6 flagship.
Considering the rumored specs and pricing, the Meizu MX6 should comfortably sit between the top-end Pro 6 and the mid-range Meizu M3 Note. Further, it is said that apart from the Meizu MX6, there is at least one more device from Meizu in the works — a dual curved edged smartphone with Exynos 8890. That is sure one flagship that we would want to see, but expect a launch only by the end of the year.
Prices reached $385 for the 32GB model or $430 for the 64GB model variant in China. The Meizu MX6 won’t be as powerful as the Meizu Pro 6, but it will provide decent specs for the price of just $275. However, that will be confirmed on June 20.
