Meizu Pro 6 Plus, M3X go official

Meizu Pro 6 Plus

Meizu’s officially unveiled the Pro 6 Plus and M3X at a huge event in China which also saw the launch of its new Flyme OS 6. The former is a premium offering, while the latter leans more towards the mid-range market sector.

Starting off with the Pro 6 Plus, one version of the handset costs CNY 2999 (approx Rs 29900) and contains 64GB of ROM and a 2GHz Exynos 8890 processor. The other is priced at CNY 3299 (roughly Rs 32800) and features 128GB of ROM and a 2.3GHz Exynos 8890 CPU.

The Meizu handset will likely invoke comparisons to the iPhone due to its overall look and the presence of a 3D Touch-like feature dubbed 3D Press by the brand. There’s a significant Galaxy S7 connection as well since both run on the same SoC. The phone strikes an independent path when it comes to its photography department though.

The handset further boasts of an enhanced mTouch fingerprint reader which unlocks the phone within 0.15s, an in-built heart rate monitor, and a dedicated ESS ES9018K2M audio chip for Hi-Fi audio.
