Meizu has a new entry-level smartphone called the Meizu M6T launching on May 29. Ahead of its launch, the device has appeared on Geekbench and in doing so revealed a few specs.
The Meizu M6T runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat and has 2GB of RAM. It is powered by the SC9850, a chipset from Spreadtrum. The SoC is clocked at 1.3GHz and has 4-cores.
According to the info on Spreadtrum’s website, the SC9850 is a 28nm chipset. It has a Mali 820MP1 GPU and supports 1080p video playback, a single 13MP sensor, and an HD+ panel.
Using the above parameters, we have a rough idea of the other specs of the Meizu M6T. The main camera won’t be more than 13MP and the display will max out at 720p. We also expect it to come in 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM variants.
In terms of performance, the Meizu M6T scored 460 points in the single-core test and 1284 points in the multi-core test. This is a bit low when compared to the scores of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A which is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 425 and is also a 28nm chip.
So if the Meizu M6T can’t even surpass the Redmi Note 5A in terms of performance, it can’t be termed a Redmi S2 killer since the S2 uses a more powerful processor. However, it appears Meizu will be marketing only its camera prowess and I’m sure there is a market for such a phone.
