Meizu Pro 6 leaks in full glory (photos)


Meizu’s Pro 5 was regarded as one of the most powerful devices in the market during its launch. While that might still hold true, the company is already prepping itself for a successor to the Pro 5.

The Pro 6, as we come to know of it, will launch in the coming weeks. The phone’s claim to fame were Li Nan’s comments about the Pro 6 being the actual device behind the iPhone 7 leaks. Not much as changed since, especially with the phone’s design. The single antenna stripe on the bottom of the phone seems to be a hit among users of the interwebs already.

The Pro 6 is going to be quite an interesting phone. Not just because of the kind of controversy it has created already, but also for what it’ll have under the hood. What we know so far is that the Pro 6 will be the first and for a while, the only phone to use the MediaTek Helio X25.

Other than that, Meizu’s love for AMOLED displays will be apparent on the Pro 6, with a 1080p display. The company’s experiment with the Pro 4’s 2K display doesn’t seem to have paid off too well, one would imagine.

Anyway, we’d be interested to know what you think of these leaked pictures of the phone.

    Not really innovative design, looks rather boring, I’ll pass.

    Whilst the shots are grainy, I really actually like the look of it in that dark grey/black. Just waiting to see what happens with pricing and performance. The Pro 5 is still a pretty compelling offering, curious to see where and how this can improve on it.

    Does the back slide? Because the bottom totally looks like my good old nokia n70 ?

        I think so too. Better than those ‘segmented’ backs like on many other phones.

    People always quick to complain but the facts are these. We have pretty much exhausted all the component configuration possibilities for designing a modern smartphone, so until there is some huge leap in component shrinking soon then all smartphones will continue to look similar. If you want a fingerprint scanner on your device the most convenient place for it is on the front. Simply no way around this. Be thankful meizu has some style and hasn’t adopted the awful shaped button like xiaomi or the space wasting circle design like apple. Even speaker position, it is either front or bottom, you can put it on the back too like redmi phones but again that would hinder user experience, so you are severely limited. Even Apple have not managed to remove antennae lines on fully metal unibody devices, in fact no manufacturer has period. LG G5 and meizu metal both have metal and plastic coated in primer not real full unibody. Personally what I think meizu has done here with the antennae design is commendable, much more ergonomic and good looking than what apple did with the iphone 6/6s antennae or the straight antennae lines of the HTC m8/a9 or new oppo phones. And this appears to be an actual real metal unibody design unlike the pro 5 and and mx5 which used plastic on the top and bottom. OK it is conservative and iPhone influenced but they have subtly improved on the tired and boring antennae designs of current handsets. Meizu does not get enough credit for the design of flyme or its industrial deign imho, they actually think about stuff like iconography and transition speed in there OS and small things like antennae colour and shape on their handsets. All i’m not sure about is what is going on with the flash, looks weird. I also have a bad feeling meizu may not opt for OIS again which would be a huge mistake.
