Not even 10 days ago, Meizu launched the m3s. On the 19th of July it is time for the MX6.
The launch will be held at the Beijing National Convention Center.
Thanks to an Antutu benchmark we will already know what will be expecting us.
The MX6 will feature a Helio X20 (MT6797) operating Mali T880 GPU and 4GB RAM (32GB basis version). As a front camera 12MP will do the job, just like 5MP on the back.
Just like all other devices a fingerprint scanner will be included as well.
According to a few rumors the screen size will be around 5.5″ and have a resolution of 1080p, which is quite common for a device in this range.
Software sided Flyme 5.2.X will makes its turn, which is powered by Android 6, making the MX6 the second Meizu device to run Marshmallow.
An Ubuntu version is expected to be released as well.
From a price perspective the MX6 will be everything else than cheap compared to its predecessors. With a price of approximately 2900RMB (400€) the MX6 will be just as expensive as the Pro 6.
At least it is not slower compared to the MX5, but the MX6 is just like the Pro 6 not a new flagship. As of now the Pro 5 remains the most powerful device in the family and this won’t change unless MediaTek changes their strategy and starts to use DDR4 RAM, which the almost one year old Pro 5 is utilizing.
Nonetheless, what we have to expect is no good. Practically the MX6 which we looked towards with high expectations turns out to be just as bad as the Pro 6, if not even worse due to the same price tag.
Sure there are a few days ahead to till the launch takes place, but if there are no updates on the specs or features, this will be a real dissapointment.
