Meizu’s M6S should be the first Meizu phone of 2018. It should also be the first Meizu device to launch with an 18:9 aspect ratio display. Now that the company has come forward and cleared the launch date to be January 17th, earlier it was though to launch today. The handset has now appeared on benchmarking site AnTuTu today with the name Meizu mblu S6. Judging by the AnTuTu listing, this might also be the first mblu phone in China.
From the AnTuTu listing, the Meizu M6S seems to be a low level mid-ranger. From the resolution 1440 x 720 we’re deducing this is the all-screen phone that has been leaked earlier in live images. More importantly, the GPU in the device is the Mali-G71 which points towards an Exynos 7872 chip. Other rumours have also pointed to an Exynos 7872 chip especially since things aren’t going well between Meizu and MediaTek.
The AnTuTu benchmark reveals Android 7.0 running on the mid-range phone that carries 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. This can be quite the deal breaker for many as Meizu doesn’t focus much on software support.
So, this is all that’s on the platter for now. Meizu’s upcoming device has been certified by TENAA already and press invites have been sent. Let’s wait and see what Meizu has to offer.
