Is Meizu’s New Phone A New Line Entirely or The Pro 6 With an Exynos 8890?

by Habeeb Onawole 8

Meizu’s next event is on the 10th of August and while the company has indeed confirmed that the event will be for the launch of a new phone, leaked pictures of a Meizu phone are pointing in another direction.

The leaked pictures shows a phone that closely resembles the Meizu Pro 6 and MX6 (more like the latter IMO). The only visible difference is the antenna line at the bottom which doesn’t curve upwards on this new phone. The camera and the LED flash are both positioned in the same spots and it also features a physical home button/fingerprint scanner.

The E Means Exynos

So what does this imply? We have translated this to mean that the E on the invite doesn’t stand for a new E-series but for Exynos and in this case the Samsung Exynos 8890.

Rumor also has it that the new device will have 4GB of RAM like the MX6, 64GB of ROM, and support fast charging. The picture already shows a USB Type-C port positioned in between the speaker grille and 3.5mm audio jack.

No Curved Display Yet

Meizu’s CEO, Bai Yongxiang mentioned after the launch of the MX6 that the company might release a curved screen phone in future. We can already see that it won’t be showing up on this device. But there are still 4 months before the end of the year, so that curved display might still be released.

    AMOLED or bust

      I would prefer if they use the same Sharp IGZO found on the MX6. But Meizu has used a lot of AMOLED panels in the past.

      • Karly Johnston

        You would prefer the MX6 display to the AMOLED of the Pro 6?

        • balcobomber25

          Yes. I don’t hate AMOLEDs like some here (realjjj) but I do prefer a really good LCD over a really good AMOLED. But of course it all depends on the actual panels used.

    Something is wrong with the last picture. It shows that the phone is using MOLY baseband which is from MediaTek and not Samsung. So that picture does not seem legit.

    do i see 3.5mm jack, is that true, keeping FM radio
    as usual, mid rang phone with MediaTek and the Pro comes with something much better like Exynos

  • balcobomber25

    Meizu bosses have already said they aren’t using Exnyos on any future phones because it doesn’t have full network support in China.

    M1 was also the name for the Meizu Metal, as the person below commented MOLY baseband means Mediatek. This is going to be an M1 Edge with Helio P10 or P20.
