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.
