It’s no secret that Meizu is gearing up to launch the successor to last year’s M5S. Scheduled to launch on January 17, the company has revealed the teaser posters for the upcoming device. This teaser (spotted by Gizmochina) focuses on the chipset of the smartphone and reveals that it will have ARM’s Cortex-A73 cores.

The company has also teased an image showing that the Meizu M6s will ditch the physical mBack button, and instead opt for on-screen navigation buttons. Users can activate a virtual mBack button that works exactly like the physical one. The poster also reveals that the registration to grab the device is now open, with the smartphone going on sale starting January 17. It will be available on the official online store, Suning, JD.com, and Lynx.

From what we know so far, the Meizu M6s will feature a 5.7-inch FullView display. The smartphone is said to feature 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. On the camera front, there might be a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-camera. The smartphone is likely to be backed by a 2,930mAh battery. The smartphone is also said to run Android 7.0 Nougat.

In fact, according to a recent hands-on video posted online, the smartphone is likely to come with an under-display fingerprint scanner. However at CES 2018 last week, Vivo showcased its first in-display fingerprint scanner. The company also said that the first smartphone to feature the in-display fingerprint technology will be announced in the first half of 2018.
