Meizu Pro 6 Mini and Meizu M3 Note allegedly caught on camera


meizu pro 6 mini and m3 note leaked

If Meizu were in charge of national secrets we would be seriously worried, it just seems that their new phones just can’t keep out of the news!

Over the past couple of weeks Meizu have been tied to 7 new phone launches for this year in a leaked roadmap, and details of both the budget Meizu M3 Note, and flagship Pro 6 (or is it Meizu MX6?) have been found in abundance too.

This morning (it is April 1st so take this with a pinch of salt) an image showing two mystery Meizu device has been shared online which the shooter claims to show the Meizu Pro 6 (left) and Meizu M3 Note (right).

Starting with the M3 Note, the phone appears to be made of metal this time around as apposed to the previous plastic phones. It has a typically large camera lens, dual LED flash and the new look Meizu logo. It is hard to confirm if this is the M3 Note or if it’s just the current Meizu Metal. Meizu do have a history of overlapping their products, and the details we see match for both phones.

On the left is an all black Meizu phone which could be the Meizu Pro 6. The black phone features the new antenna designs that Meizu had teased in the fast, and a new LED flash/laser arrangement for the main camera. It’s clear that this black phone is smaller leading us to believe that this could be the 4.7-inch Meizu Pro 6 Mini.

Meizu Leaked Roadmap

    The Pro 6 thing still bothers me, at least now it seems that it is the mini version which makes more sense. But its still far too early in the year for that. I think they have just rebranded the (supposedly cancelled) Pro 5 mini as Pro 6 mini. On the Note 3, the picture above can’t be metal, it doesn’t make sense if Meizu is going to release the Metal 2(Although I don’t really think the metal is needed anyways, it kinda blurs the lines with the MX series.)

      I have a feeling the Metal/MX line will be merged into one midrange phone. I also think this roadmap is complete BS based on Meizu’s own comments (not using the Exnyos) in my post above.

    Should be “in the past”.

    I don’t think that the right one is the Meizu Metal. The Meizu Metal doesn’t have visible antenna gaps, since they coated the back of the Metal.

      Looks almost identical to the MX5 except the logo/wording.

              I didn’t heard any advantage for smartphone cameras yet.

              Maybe it can provide more even lighting at close-up photography.

              I owned the Nexus 6. I couldn’t see an advantage in the ring flash, since the plastic didn’t diffuse the light enough. You didn’t see a glowing ring, so still saw the two leds.

    I am surprised you guys still mention this roadmap despite the comments from Meizu themselves:

    “At the Mediatek conference Meizu boss Bai Yongxiang confirmed that the Meizu Pro 6 will feature the Helio X25 SoC instead. The Helio X25 is basically an enhanced version of the Helio X20 and was co-developed with Mediatek and Meizu. Meizu will have exclusive access to the Helio X25 for several months preventing rivals using the chip.”

    And this from Li Nan:

    “Also in the discussion the company boss stated that the Meizu Pro 6 will not have a Samsung Exynos 8890 as the chipset does not offer full network support. So we know that the Meizu Pro 6 will be designed to support all of China’s mobile carriers, but what chipset could it use? A Snapdragon 820 perhaps?”

    Either the top two Meizu executives are lying or that roadmap is BS….

      That table is probably fan made based on previous year’s phones.

      Li Nan is a deceiver guy IMO.

      • balcobomber25

        Yea I think some of the table will be correct but it’s more common sense (like P10 in midrange devices) than actual inside knowledge.

    At this point there is only speculations around Meizu upcoming products.
    My guess would be that we looking at a thin bezel 5.5 inch Meizu Pro 6 (left) and a 5.7 inch Meizu Pro 5 (right). This is not a 4.7 inch phone.

    Too bad that the home button leads to huge bezels and ugly front.Their permanent need to mimic Apple’s mistakes is rather annoying.

      Side bezels are pretty thin, but it’s chin worse than past year’s Meizu phones. I doubt that that’s related with the button.

      Their determination of following iPhone 6’s design with minor improvements instead to improving their own design is more annoying IMO.
