Meizu recently shared a photo of the Pro 6 online, showcasing a design that is in line with recent leaks. Apart from the big form factor and the curved edges, an interesting thing to note is the camera flash. It looks Meizu has opted for a ring of LEDs circling the laser autofocus, and as per reports, this ring could have as many as 10 LEDs. There is currently no word on why Meizu could be opting for so many LEDs, but seems like low-light photography is one area of focus.
Meizu Pro 6 specifications, features: From what we have come across so far, the Pro 6 will flaunt a 5.7-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) Super AMOLED display, and will be powered by MediaTek’s latest Helio X25 chipset with 10-cores. This new chipset is believed to be exclusive to the Pro 6 for the time being at least.
Another talking point of the Pro 6 will be 6GB of RAM. This will be only the second smartphone after the Vivo XPlay 5 to boast this much RAM. The company is also expected to launch another variant of the smartphone, which will come with 4GB of RAM and Samsung’s Exynos 8890 chipset. The Pro 6 is also expected to feature 21-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, a 3,500mAh battery, and USB Type-C port. A fingerprint will also be included, embedded into the physical home button up front.
