Meitu is not a famous smartphone manufacturer internationally, but the company does have a small fan following in China. A couple of days back, Meitu announced the brand new Meitu M6 smartphone, and the phone was a unique shaped device. It was good to see something different in the market flooded with phones with traditional rectangular design and glass/ metal bodies. Instead of following the tradition, Meitu came up with a different design, hexagonal in shape with a curved back that should be easy to hold. The phone features 2.5D curved glass on the back as well as the front.
The Chinese website, mydrivers got their hands on the new Meitu M6 flagship and they have done an unboxing of the device. You can check out the pictures of the M6 in real life down below.
To recap, the Meitu M6 comes with the Helio P10 octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz with 3GB of RAM on board and 64GB of internal storage. The main highlight of the phone is the 21MP sensor that is fitted up front. It is one of the largest sensors we have seen on a front camera, and given that its Sony IMx230, we expect pretty good pictures from this shooter. At the back as well, you have the same 21MP sensor, making sure that the performance of the rear camera is also up to the mark. Since this phone is focused on its camera performance, Meitu has used Fujitsu’s Milbeaut image processing chip along with other techs such as M-Face recognition, and M-color. The battery isn’t large, with a capacity of just 2940mAh, but considering its 5-inch 1080p screen, it should probably be enough to last a day. The Meitu M6 will go on sale in China for 2399 Yuan ($363).
So, what do you think about the phone’s design? Did you notice that the home button looks exactly like the iPhone?
