Meizu M6 Note May Surprise with a Snapdragon Chipset

by Anvinraj Valiyathara 7

Meizu had announced the M5 Note in December 2016 and the Chinese firm is now prepping up to launch its successor. Meizu has confirmed that it will be holding an unveil event on Aug. 23. The official poster revealed by the company suggests that the upcoming Meizu M6 Note will be coming with dual rear cameras. The company has released a few statements that shows that Meizu M6 Note will surprise the audience with its processor.


Here are some Meizu’s statement on the processor of Meizu M6 Note:

“The Meizu M6 Note will feature a processor that may surprise people, and will offer a vast improvement in performance and efficiency compared to the previous generation.”

“The Meizu M6 Note will debut some very exciting changes for our M-series. One will be in the camera department, whereas the other is related to the processor.”

Most of the Meizu smartphones are either powered by MediaTek or Samsung Exynos chipsets. However, it seems that Meizu may use a Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile chipset for the M6 Note. The MediaTek Helio P10 powers the M5 Note and a leaked image that had appeared in the previous week had suggested that the Helio P25 may power the M6 Note.

However, Meizu’s statement suggests that we may see a Snapdragon driven M6 Note this year.  There is a possibility that the Meizu M6 Note may come in MediaTek and Snapdragon editions. The inclusion of the Snapdragon chipset indicates that the Meizu M6 Note may release in the U.S.

As far as the photography prowess of the M6 Note is concerned, a leaked photo has revealed that it will be coming with dual rear cameras and a quad LED flash. However, the quad LED flash system seems to be different from the one present on Meizu E2. The exact camera configuration

It is speculated to house a 4,000mAh battery like the Meizu M5 Note. Rumors have revealed that the Meizu M6 Note would be coming with a 5.5-inch full HD display. It is expected to arrive in two variants such as 3 GB of RAM + 32 GB of internal storage and 4 GB of RAM + 64 GB of storage. It is expected to come with a front-facing fingerprint reader.

    This is just wishful thinking. Both M3 Note and M5 Notes used Helio P10, the “suprise” is Helio P25.

    It will use a Mediatek processor and that will be the surprise. Every year there’s expectation of Meizu using a host of processors from Qualcomm, Samsung and even Kirin this year. Every year they stick with Mediatek and the occasional Samsung. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though, MTK has come a long way and some of their midrange SoC’s are actually better than Qualcomm’s midrange.

    Unless they are planning to launch outside of Asia, which they have shown no indication of, there really isn’t any reason to use Qualcomm. But as always with Meizu, you never really know what they will do. They are one of the few companies that does their own thing.

      Meizu UI is shit. I hate their efforts to copy iOS style single button action. They should had stuck to normal android button layout.

      • balcobomber25

        Flyme isn’t bad and their single button works incredibly well with the fingerprint sensor.

        • AbdulB1

          There is a reason Google created 3 button layout to make things easier

            Actually the mBack button is one of my favorite things about Flyme. Really miss it when using other phones.

      Hi Balco, I am planning to order the Xiaomi Mi 5X on Ibuygou website. I believe that the 32GB variant will be more than enough for me. I could get the phone at 195€. Would you recommend me to get that phone? I am not a power user, the Mi 5X has very good battery life and pretty good camera which might be useful on some occasions. Thanks in advance!
