After a few months of silence, Meizu suddenly came into the spotlight, thanks to its Meizu Pro 6 flagship smartphone. We have seen the device in a couple of benchmark apps like AnTuTu and the performance of the phone has been quite impressive. Now, a screenshot of an internal mail sent by Meizu’s VP Li Nan reveals the pricing for the phone.
According to the leaked mail, the Meizu Pro 6 flagship could be priced at 2999 Yuan which comes to around $462. When compared to rivals such as the Xiaomi Mi 5 Pro, this is much more costlier. The Pro variant of the Mi 5 retails for an official price tag of 2699 Yuan ($415), which is a good $45 less than this figure.
Thanks to the recent AnTuTu listing of the Meizu Pro 6 smartphone, we know the specs of the device. The phone is confirmed to feature the Helio X25 deca-core processor (upgraded variant of the Helio X20) and this chip will be exclusive to the device for a few months.
Apart from the powerful specs, the Meizu Pro 6 smartphone will come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There will be a 21MP rear camera sensor and a 5MP front facing shooter. The screen size is unknown at the moment, but the resolution will be 1080 FHD. Finally, the phone will be running on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS out of the box.
Do you think these specs are comparable to Xiaomi Mi 5 which is way cheaper? I mean, the Mi 5 standard version managed to score about 106K on AnTuTu during our review. On the other hand, today’s AnTuTu listing showed that the Meizu Pro 6 scored nearly 100K. And this particular model featuring 3GB of RAM costs almost $150 less than the rumored price of $460 for the Pro 6.
So, do you think the 2999 Yuan ($460) price tag for the Meizu Pro 6 will be a bit too high?
Meanwhile, Meizu CEO Huang has confirmed that the affordable Meizu M3 Note will meet us soon. Read more about the device from here.
