Meizu's flagship Pro 6 Plus has fancy specs for its price

The phone shares more than a few similarities with other Android flagships in the market

Meizu unveiled not just one but two new phones, one being a high-end competitor to Samsung Galaxy S7 range and the second a mid-range device.

Of course the most interesting is the Meizu Pro 6 Plus - think the same processor as the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge (Exynos 8890) with a 5.7in Super AMOLED display with QHD resolution and 4GB of RAM. The 64GB version will have a 2GHz processor while the 128GB version has a slightly higher 2.3GHz clockspeed.

As for the camera, the Pro 6 Plus has a 12MP f/2.0 Sony IMX386 sensor with optical stabilisation, a 10 LED ring flash, laser autofocus and a 5MP f/2.0 front camera.

There's also a fancy mTouch super-fast (0.15s) fingerprint reader, built-in heart rate monitor as well as a dedicated audio chip - the same used for the LG V20. You also get USB Type-C, fast charging, a 3400mAh battery and a fairly lightweight 158g chassis.

 

 

 

As for the Meizu M3X, it has the same camera sensor but a smaller 5.5in full HD display.

The processor is a Helio P20 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage, and 4GB of RAM on the 64GB model. The battery is slightly smaller at 3200mAh. While it has a fingerprint sensor, it does without the heart rate sensor and yes, it also has a Type-C port.

The Meizu Pro 6 Plus will be priced at RMB3000/64GB (S$620) and RMB3300/128GB (S$685), with colour choices in Champagne Gold, Deep Ash and Moonlight Silver. As for the M3X, it comes in Phantom Blue, Streamer Gold, Pearl White and Obsidian Black. and is priced at RMB1700 (S$350) and RMB2000 (S$415) for the 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB models respectively.

As for availability, the phones are only available in China for the moment. Hang in there.
