Chinese smartphone manufacturer Meizu may be announcing a plus-sized version of the Meizu Pro 6 as soon as September 3. Here’s everything you need to know.
The rumored Meizu Pro 6 Plus may offer up a seamless blend between the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 — because that’s what the renders look like. The device has a similar edge panel, made famous by Samsung’s Galaxy series, and the rounded corners top off the iPhone-esque look. You’ll also find a physical home button that’s not quite a circle, but not quite a rectangle either.
The renders come from a user on Weibo — we can’t verify them, so take them with a grain of salt.
The back of the device is sleek, with a circular camera in the top center, and a possible second camera below it. There’s also another circle below the camera, which is likely the flash.
The top and bottom of the smartphone house the antennas — it’s a relatively new look that we’ve only seen in the upcoming iPhone 7 and the LeEco Le 2S.
Meizu’s upcoming device reportedly has a resolution of 2,560 by 1,440 pixels, and the Quad HD screen is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 8890 processor — the same one powering the likes of the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, and the recently announced Note 7, according to Phone Radar. It’s rumored to come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, and like the Note 7, is expected to have a 12-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera.
The Meizu Pro 6 Plus will also likely run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but it will be layered with the latest version of its Android skin, Flyme.
Meizu has an event planned on September 3 — smack-dab in the middle of IFA, the Berlin-based consumer electronics trade show. It’s likely where we’ll find out more information about the Meizu Pro 6 Plus, its price, and release date.
We’ll update this post as we get more information.
