Meizu MX6 release date, specs: device available to purchase starting July 30


Chinese mobile developer Meizu recently revealed its newest smartphone, the new Meizu MX6. The new smartphone has been the topic of countless rumors, speculation reports, and major leaks, but it was only recently that the company had finally made the device official.

The Meizu MX6 is expected to go on sale first in its home market in China, but as of now, there is word yet on whether the company would be selling the device internationally, or if users who want the device would instead rely on third-party resellers.

Meizu’s MX6 smartphone was revealed during a launch event in Beijing, China. The device takes pride in its unibody build that is made entirely out of metal. Looking at the back panel of the device, one can see that the new smartphone still keeps the antenna bands that were also featured in the Meizu Pro 6 smartphone.

The device is 153.6 mm in height, 75.2 mm in width, is 7.3 mm thick, and weights 155 grams. It sports a display of 5.5 inches made by Sharp with a 2.5D curved glass on top, and it has a Full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels.

The new Meizu MX6 runs under a MediaTek Helio X20 chipset, with a deca-core central processing unit (CPU) clocking in at a speed of 2.3 GHz. The handling of the graphics and playback of the device is made by the Mali-T880 MP4 graphics processing unit (GPU).

The device packs 4 GB worth of random access memory (RAM) with 32 GB worth of internal storage capacity. Unfortunately, the device does not support an external microSD card slot for memory expansion. Other specs include a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper, a fingerprint sensor, and a 3,060 mAh battery with fast charging capability. The device boots on Android Marshmallow 6.0 operating system with the Flyme user interface on top of it.

The Meizu MX6 would be available in China starting July 30 for a price of CNY 1,999 or $299.
