Meizu is set to launch a new smartphone for the Chinese market on March 6, but the company might be working on other models as well. A Meizu smartphone with model number M712Q-B has been spotted on TENAA, which could be the M6S. The smartphone seems to have same specifications as its predecessor, but with different memory and storage configurations.
The original Meizu M6S launched with 3GB RAM and 32GB or 64GB internal storage options. The new TENAA listing shows that company is planning to add new models with 4GB and 6GB RAMs. The listing reveals that 4GB RAM variant will offer 32GB storage, while the 6GB RAM model will have 128GB storage. These new models will be offered in addition to the existing variant with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage.
Meizu M6S is a mid-range smartphone, but what makes it interesting is the option to configure it with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. We have seen smartphone makers spec-out their mid-range devices with 6GB RAM and up to 64GB storage, but the M6S could become an exception with 128GB storage. There is no word on when the M6S will go on sale, but the TENAA listing suggests it will hit the Chinese smartphone market very soon.
In terms of specifications, the M6S features a 5.7-inch display with 1440×720 pixel resolution, and 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7872 processor, and offers 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera. It is also unique with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and it runs Flyme UI 6.2 based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
Meizu M6S is backed by a 3,000mAh battery under the hood, and supports fast charging via 18W power brick. The smartphone is expected to be available in black, silver, gold and blue color options. The M6S will compete with Xiaomi’s Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus smartphones in China.
