Meizu M6s was expected to launch on January 4, which clearly did not happen. Now, the Chinese company has sent out media invites for a launch event on January 17. In the meantime, the smartphone has also been spotted online in two major leaks. One is an AnTuTu benchmark listing, and the other is a hands-on video that reveals an under-display fingerprint sensor.

Meizu’s media invite reveals that the January 17 launch event will be held at the National Convention Center in Beijing, GSMarena reports. While the invite doesn’t explicitly mention the phone, the company is likely to launch the Meizu M6s. The upcoming smartphone is also expected to be the company’s first device with 18:9 aspect ratio display. Also Read - Meizu 17 series to launch on May 8 with Snapdragon 865, horizontal camera module
Coming to the AnTuTu listing, the listing reveals that the Meizu M6s will feature 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. The smartphone is also said to run Android 7.0 Nougat. The third, and probably the most important leak, is a hands-on video of the Meizu M6s shared by Slashleak. This video reveals the much-rumored under-display fingerprint scanner. In the video, the person is seen demonstrating the new technology. This happens to contradict earlier reports suggesting that the Vivo Xplay 7 will be the first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
From what we know so far, the Meizu M6s will feature a 5.7-inch FullView display, Samsung s Exynos 7872 chipset, 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-camera. TENAA listing also revealed that the smartphone might also be backed by a 2,930mAh battery.
