Meizu MX6 with Helio X20 and 6GB RAM?


meizu mx6 helio x20

Meizu rumours today tell that the Meizu MX6 (not the Pro 6) could ship with Mediatek’s Helio X20 processor and up to 6GB RAM.

Meizu split its top end phones last year with the MX range becoming the top of the range Mediatek phones, while the Pro range became the Exynos powered phones. Currently the Meizu MX5 is powered by a Helio X20 while the Pro 5 has a Samsung chipset, but things don’t last and an MX6 is on its way.

According to sources the Meizu MX6 will feature a Helio X20 chipset, which doesn’t seem all that surprising, well in fact it does. So far the only Helio X20 phones we have seen so far are from Zopo and Doogee, which suggests that the latest Helio chip isn’t getting much wide acceptance from the larger phone brands (perhaps they are waiting for a Helio X30 to arrive?). The next tid bit is the MX6 could have as much as 6GB RAM.

We’re not as convinced. The Helio X20 seems possible, but 6GB RAM isn’t likely to happen. In all honesty though we feel that Meizu might use the Helio X20 in a new Meilan phone (Meizu Metal 2 perhaps), while the Helio X30 would make more sense with more RAM in the MX6 with a later 2016 launch date.

This way Meizu would have a new phone with the latest Mediatek chip, and would mean that their budget and flagship phones won’t overlap in the specs department again. Then again this is Meizu we are talking about and they have been known to surprise us in the past.

    You take empty speculations on 2 different matters and mix them up.The 6GB of RAM speculation( as in some random dude guessing specs) is about the Pro not the Helio X20 model – X20 doesn’t even support 6GB.

      This. The X20 only supports up to 4GB.

      Ye, but Intel also claim that the Z8300 Cherry Trail only supports upto 2GB of RAM while there’s plenty of Tablets and Mini PCs coming out with 4GB using the Z8300…

      What if the X20 is something similar???

    I would appreciate it if someone would explain to me why I need to pay for 6GB of RAM. I currently have the iPhone 5s which has 1GB of RAM and haven’t noticed any significant problems. Now I need six times this much? Is this really useful or is it targeted at those of us who are fixated on the best specs possible?

      If you could pay for its price…. Then why complain about anything on this phone… LoL

      IOS and Android work differently.

      You don’t need 6GB but Android needs a lot more than 1GB.

    Is there any chance the MX6 wont have a physical home button?

    • balcobomber25

      I doubt it, Flyme is practically built around the home button. And it works incredibly well.

        Too bad
        But thanks for the info… Never been using Flyme myself

    Hmmm…I wonder that…

    The Helio X20 will support dual channel LPDDR4X 1600mhz up to 6GB as a optional
    I just saying BTW

      The X20 has support for DDR3 up to 4GB.

      The P20 has support for DDR4 up to 6GB.

        “The X20 has support for DDR3 up to 4GB.”

        Yes, of course, but I still wonder that it secretly supports DDR4 up to 6GB
        Who knows!

        Well, RAM support usually isnt limited by the pure amount but on banks and channels… With higher density BGAs it should be possible to squeeze more into the given amount oft banks and channels

        See the Atom Z8300 for example… Intel has listed it with supporting 2GB max but it obviously can run as much as 4GB with current RAM BGAs
