Early this morning in Beijing, Meizu announced the MX6, its latest smartphone which closely resembles the Pro 6 which was unveiled just three months ago. Just like the Pro 6, the MX6 features a 10-core processor (albeit a slightly slower one) and an all-metal design, along with some pretty formidable specs:
- 5.5-inch 1080p display
- Android 6.0 with Flyme 5.2
- 2.3GHz MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core processor
- 4GB of RAM
- 32GB of storage
- 12MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera
- 3,060 mAh battery with 24w fast charging
- Dual SIM slots, USB-C port, fingerprint sensor
The MX6 falls behind the Pro 6 when it comes to the camera and processing speed (arguably the two most important features on a phone) but can match Meizu's flagship device everywhere else, and at a cheaper price. The Meizu MX6 will retail for $299 when it's released, $90 less than the cheapest Pro 6.
The company has also announced the Loop Jacket, a smart cover with a circular cutout (reminiscent of LG's Quick Circle case) that will work with the MX6, Pro 6, and Note3. The case will allow users to answer calls and check notifications without having to activate the entire display. The $15 Miezu Loop Jacket and the Meizu MX6 will both be available for purchase on July 30th in China.
