Rumours have been floating round for months now about a Meizu phone with an Exynos 8890 processor. There are also rumours of a Meizu Pro 7 with a dual-curved screen expected to launch soon and probably be the last flagship for the year. All these rumours have been clarified by Meizu Vice-President, Li Nan.
According to Mr. Nan, there will be no Exynos 8890 phone citing dual 4G network policy as the reason. He also mentioned that the Pro 7 will be released next year although he didn’t reveal any of the specifications.
His comment on the Exynos 8890 chip puts to rest earlier news that the company was going to release two more flagships this year: a Meizu Pro 6S with a new chip and a Pro 6 Plus with an Exynos 8890 and a 5.7” display.
So as it appears, the only one we’ll be getting is the Pro 6S. It has been reported that the Pro 6S will only be a slight upgrade from the Pro 6. The major upgrade of the Pro 6S is likely to be the swapping out the Helio X25 for a Helio P20 processor. Projected launch date for the Meizu Pro 6S is late October.
