Meizu has at last pulled the curtains off its latest flagship the Pro 6, disproving rumors which had alleged that the phone would boast of a 6GB/128GB setup. It instead features a far more ordinary 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of ROM.
Design-wise, the aluminum-bodied Meizu Pro 6 could easily be mistaken for an iPhone, which is exactly what happened a month ago in a leak. Inviting further comparisons is the brand’s new pressure-sensitive 3D Press feature which works more or less like Apple’s 3D Touch.
The Pro 6 is set apart from its competitors by having exclusive access to MediaTek’s top-of-the-line 10-core Helio X25 processor. The phone also comes with a unique 10-LED flash unit on its rear surface. It forms a ring around the phone’s laser focus assist and sits below the 21MP main camera.
This shooter can supposedly focus on photos within 0.07 seconds with the help of PDAF and image-processing algorithms. Other top highlights of the Meizu offering include its fingerprint scanner, capable of unlocking the phone in 0.2 seconds, and its Hi-Fi Cirrus Logic CS43L36 chipset to output superior sound quality.
