Meitu should be a familiar name already. The phone manufacturer/selfie app maker’s latest phone is the Meitu V6. While it maintains the hexagonal-design of its predecessors, it is in a class of its own with respect to design and specs.
Meitu V6 Design
The Meitu V6 is a luxury device through and through. From the colorful hand-stitched calfskin leather that is available in Edinburgh Blue, Melbourne Green, Morocco Powder (pink), and Rotterdam Orange, to the 18K gold rivets on its back and gold colored metal frame. Let’s also not forget it has dual cameras on both sides and four LED flash on the rear.
In a world where manufacturers are moving towards smaller bezels, Meitu is not scared of making them bigger. The top bezel of the V6 is huge thanks in part to the dual cameras. The lower bottom doesn’t miss out on the size too as it houses a circular fingerprint scanner. The Meitu V6 rounds off the design with its boomerang-shaped front facing stereo speakers at the top and bottom.
Meitu V6 Specs
The Meitu V6 has a 5.49” FHD OLED display. It is powered by an unspecified processor clocked at 2.8GHz and comes with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Storage is 128GB on both variants.
The V6 packs 4 cameras in total -two on each side. The primary sensor on both sides is the Sony IMX362 with a F/1.8 aperture, 6P lens, 4th gen dual ISPs, and OIS. The secondary cameras are 5MP sensors for capturing depth of field information for portrait images. While the front doesn’t have its own LED flash, the sensors on the back are flanked by dual LED flash on each side.
Meitu doesn’t disappoint with the ton of filters and beauty enhancements built into the camera app. There are also live filters for video recording. Since this is a camera-centric phone, it is easy to understand why it has 128GB of storage.
The Meitu V6 runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. It has a 3100mAh battery and comes with the usual connectivity features.
Pricing for the Meitu V6 has not been revealed yet. However, pre-order for the phone will begin on the 13th of November. It will then go on sale on the 23rd.
