Meizu releases a Ubuntu version of the MX6

Previously it was the Meizu MX4 and the Meizu Pro 5 who got the Linux treatment

Meizu has made it a habit to release Ubuntu versions of its higher-end phones, with the MX4 and the Pro 5 being among them. Now another model gets kitted with Linux and it's the MX6.

The only specs confirmed so far is that the phone will have a Helio X20 processor paired with the Mali-T880 GPU. So far, the Meizu MX6 Android version has yet to be released but word is that it will run the same processor and GPU, with no SD slot but have 16/32/64GB storage options with either 3 or 4GB RAM.

Other specs of note (rumoured, as yet unconfirmed) include a 4000mAh battery, fast charging, a 5.5in Full HD screen, and a 20.7MP rear camera with dual-tone flash, while the front camera will likely be an 8MP camera.

A listing of the phone has however popped up on an online retailer's website that show the MX6 to have different specs from what is rumoured. The specs list the same processor, but say the battery will be smaller and the screen resolution will be bigger (1920x1080).

From the specs, it looks as though this model will be in the higher-end of Meizu's phone range. The company's phones have been known for offering decent specs for very good price points, important in a market where China brands such as Xiaomi and ZTE are pushing the performance to price ratio.

Priced at €399.99, it is expected to go on sale 19 July but no word as to international availability for the monent.
