Meizu has launched an upgraded version of the Pro 6, and is calling it Meizu Pro 6s. The smartphone is a carbon copy of its base variant, with respect to design, but comes with upgrades in the camera and battery life. It is priced at CNY 2,699 (roughly Rs. 26,700), and is expected to launch in China soon.
The Meizu Pro 6s will be available in the same – Grey, Gold, Silver, and Rose Gold – colour variants, and will sport the same curve-edged aluminium body with identical antenna bands design. It is essentially just a specifications upgrade, while the design and look has been kept intact by Meizu. Just to recap, the Meixu Pro 6 was launched in April this year, with the price starting at CNY 2,500 (roughly Rs. 25,700).
The Meizu Pro 6s features a 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 rear sensor with enhanced with 4-axis optical image stabilisation, laser-assistance, phase-detection autofocus, and 10-LED dual-tone ring flash. The 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture stays the same with large 1.4-micron pixels.The battery has also been bumped up to 3060mAh (from the 2560mAh seen on the Pro 6), and this has caused the weight to also increase slightly. The Meizu Pro 6s measures at 147.7×70.8×7.3mm, and weighs 163 grams. The smartphone supports fast charging with mCharge 3.0 technology via a 24W charger.
The Meizu Pro 6s also has the 3D Press functionality seen on the base variant, and the fingerprint scanner is integrated under the Home Button. The 3D Press feature is nothing but Meizu’s take on the 3D Touch pressure sensitive display technology that Apple debuted with the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. The smartphone features a 5.2-inch Super Amoled full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolution display with a pixel density of 423ppi and Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
It is powered by a deca-core MediaTek Helio X25 processor with the 4 Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.4GHz, 4 Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.0GHz, and 2 Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.5GHz. The deca-core processor is clubbed with 4GB LPDDR3 RAM and Mali-T880 GPU. The Meizu Pro 6s offers 64GB of non-expandable storage. On the connectivity front, the Meizu Pro 6 comes with the support for 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS, A-GPS, and USB Type-C connectivity.
