Meizu M6 was officially unveiled earlier today as the sixth generation model of the M Series family and the Chinese company thinks of it as a “Back to Basics” choice. Don’t get me wrong, the device looks beautiful but in terms of specs it is indeed somewhat “basic” as you can see below.
The Meizu M6 is made out of polycarbonate materials, but in order to achieve a vibrant metallic look, Meizu said they used a process called Non-Conductive Vacuum Metallization (NCVM) technology. The front side of the device is also revamped, with the ambient sensor placed on the left, while the selfie camera has moved to the right.
Meizu M6 – Technical specs
You won’t see any major breakthrough’s here. The Meizu M6 uses the same 5.2-inch HD display of the previous model and it’s powered by an 8-core SoC @ 1.5GHz, paired with just 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16/32GB of storage. The M6 has a hybrid dual SIM slot, so you can throw in two SIM cards or swap out a SIM for up to 128GB of MicroSD storage.

There’s an 8MP selfie camera in front, with an f/2.0 sensor – a significant upgrade from the 5MP shooter of the previous model. On its back, we can find a 13MP main camera with an RGBW color sensor that can improve the image clarity by reducing noise reduction. The M6 retains the Home button below the display, and inside it we can still find the mTouch fingerprint sensor, that can unlock the phone in just 0,2 seconds. There’s also a 3.5mm audio jack, a micro USB port, a 3070 mAh battery and the necessary speaker grilles.
The M6 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Flyme 6 on top, in addition to Meizu’s One Mind AI Engine.
The Meizu M6 will be available in the coming days in 4 colors: black, blue, silver, and gold. In case you’re interested to buy it, know that the 2GB RAM +16GB ROM model will sell for ¥699 (~$106) and the 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM version will get a ¥899 (~$137) price tag.
