Here’s the first real image of the Meizu MX6


meizu mx6

With a launch date for the phone confirmed yesterday, today a real life photo of the Meizu MX6 has appeared showing a final working model.

To say we are less than excited about the MX6 as we have been of other phones is a bit of an understatement. Over the past few years Meizu have been launching more and more phones than every, but each one has been nothing more than a slight update over the previous with slight physical changes.

Meizu’s lack of inspiration compared to Huawei, Xiaomi and Lenovo who have released all new models with new innovations recently makes the Zhuhai phone maker a little predictable.

For anyone hoping this predictability might end with the Meizu MX6 then I’m afraid you are in for a disappointment as the new MX6 looks just like the current Pro 6, which in turn looks only slight different to the MX5, Meizu Note, MX4 Pro, MX4 etc etc.

An image of the rear of the phone shows the sale LED ring design as the Pro 6, while the photo of the working phone shows narrowish bezels and a physical home button with fingerprint scanner.

Specs of the phone (according to benchmarks) include a Mediatek Helio X20 chipset, 4GB RAM, 32GB memory, 5 mega-pixel front camera, 12 mega-pixel rear, 3000mAh battery and 5.5-inch FHD display.

Pricing for the MX6 is believed to start at around 2099 Yuan, a slight increase in price over the MX5 which might be due to upgraded audio hardware.

What do you think of Meizu? Do you wish they would take a few more risks and build something new? Or are you happy with their overlapping machines?

    I bought an MX4 almost two years ago and this is a good news for me because my product still look great?.
    It is like German carmakers… but I agree with you when you say that Meizu should take more risks…
    For example they should improve their cameras with ois and maybe produce a note version like the Samsung one… with a wacom pen…

    I have been using 1st gen Meizu MX 4-core for more than 3 years now and still working magnificently. I just love Flyme OS especially the original music player that came along with it. I have more than 1000 FLAC songs in my playlist and it really is a joy listening to high-quality audio with a Meizu phone. My next phone will surely be another Meizu phone – I will decide if it would be the MX5 or the upcoming MX6. Can’t wait!

      Thing is – hardly anything changes in them apart of the SoC. Forums say of first ageing problems with MX5, so looks liek it isn’t as durable as MX4 is. I don’t know, they seem bit confused, or smthn.

        Aging problems with MX5? Mine is still running fine apart from a cracked screen (my fault). As for changes between the MX4 and MX5 the only thing that was carried over was the camera, everything else including the display was changed.

          I know you would be first to tell us if sometihng bad happened to it. I follow a thread about MX5 on one of the forums and amount of problems reported recently is huge. MX4 thread – full of still happy people.
          I might have expressed it badly – it’s not like nothing changed, I’m just not sure if it changed for better. I believe MX4 where better engineered.
          When it comes to camera department, looks like it’s still going to be the same thing. This move is the biggest surprise to me – forget about getting OiS because? For me this one is the reason enough to stop reading about new Meizu devices.

    I would never expect this kind of design from Meizu…

      July 10, 2016

      This is the same design of the Pro 6….

      I actually prefer what they have now instead of the halo. I love the multi-function home button which more companies are starting to incorporate.

      • July 10, 2016

        Zui on ZUK phones have it. It really is handy.

            My next planned trip is India after that maybe Thailand and Taiwan.

            • July 10, 2016

              Oh well, I’ll have to wait for an international release then…

              Probably won’t be back in Malaysia till at least November

            • July 10, 2016

              Alright. You can buy it in Senheng BTW.

              July 10, 2016

              I’ll look around see if I can find one

            • July 10, 2016

              Well, Senheng is a Malaysian store, but i would buy an international version of the A9 pro of you if you find it somewhere:)
              My perfect device at the moment.

    If only the camera will be better (I dont expect too much – just a crisp image in daylight , which is hard to get on Pro 6, lol) this is my new phone.

    Just like with the new Xiaomi if it doesn’t have US LTE I am not interested. There is little excuse in 2016 for these brands not to have full LTE.

    Xiaomi is better with 4000mah battery. I will wait for redmi note 4.

    DOA,everything about meizu strategy this year has been wrong. This will no doubt be another mediocre overpriced handset, they really need to focus more on being more competitive, the market in china is just too overcrowded not to be and at the moment there are just too many better value handsets out there.
