After what can be considered a slow year for Meizu the company is preparing a new comeback in 2018 with multiple devices to be released and a whole revamp over their mid-range series.
The very first smartphone to be launched by the company is the Meizu mBlu S6 or more popularly known as Meizu M6S. The smartphone has been the target of multiple leaks in the last months and the most recent comes from no other place than from the Chinese Regulatory department of TENAA.
Surprisingly the new smartphone doesn’t bring the very known mBack button present in most of Meizu handsets, instead, it seems to move to On-screen buttons. That’s something really curious to see, since the latest release of Meizu’s main rival, Xiaomi, has also dropped the use of capacitive buttons to the virtual keys solution.
The mBlue S6 packs a 5.7-inch display with 1440x720p resolution resulting in the trending 18:9 aspect ratio. Comparisons will be inevitable since that’s the same size and resolution found in the Redmi 5. The phone rear is remarked by the presence of the mBlue logo being the first smartphone to be launched under the Meizu’s mBlue sub-brand and division of mid-range smartphones.
Surprisingly Meizu opted for a side mounted fingerprint sensor place just below the standard power button. This is something that isn’t being offered by most of Chinese companies that regularly opt between Front or Rear fingerprint sensors.
The mBlue S6 processing power is ensured by a an hexa-core Exynos 7872 which have the graphical power ensured by the Mali-G71 GPU. The processor comes coupled with 3GB RAM along 32GB of Storage. The lights are kept on by a 3,000mAh battery with fast charge support. Earlier the week the smartphone also made an apparition on the AnTuTu database.
The smartphone is likely coming in Q1 2018 to compete with the likes of Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus.
