Meizu Pro 6 is the next flagship from the Chinese smartphone maker which is going to offer crazy 6 GB RAM and can also feature the latest Samsung Processor Exynos 8890.
On March 1st 2016, Vivo launched the Vivo XPlay 5 Elite which is the world’s first smartphone to have 6 GB RAM. Vivo actually launched 2 models one with 6 GB RAM and the other with 4 GB of RAM both powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820.
The latest news is that the successor to the Meizu Pro 5 is on cards and we can see it launch this month in China featuring some of the top line hardware specs available in the industry. Meizu has previously tied up with Samsung for the Meizu Pro 5 which runs on the Samsung made processor Exynos 7420 ( which was also used in the Samsung S6 edge and S6). This time around we are also expecting that Meizu will get the Samsung made Exynos 8890 in it’s next smartphone Meizu Pro 6.
There are also news that states the Meizu Pro 6 can debut the next generation processor from Mediatek the Helio X25 and can be an exclusive deal with Mediatek to use the processor.
Recently Mediatek has debuted the 10 Core Mediatek Helio X20 on the unknown brand Zopo (Zopo Speed 8 Smartphone).
Readers would be aware that Samsung has used 2 separate processors in the latest Samsung S7 and S7 edge – Exynos 8890 and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. The Snapdragon 820 offers slightly better performance in gaming compared to the Exynos 8890.
The other specs for the Meizu Pro 6 include a 5.5 inch Full HD Display ( 1920*1080) pixels with 401 PPI. It is however not clear if the display it is going to use is made by Samsung an OLED screen or by some other vendor.
The smartphone is expected to come in 2 storage variants with 64 GB space and 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage and 6 GB RAM. The Meizu Pro 6 will run on the latest Android Marshmallow 6.0 along with the custom Meizu UI Flyme OS 6.0.
The Meizu Pro 6 will also have the HI FI sound for better audio through speakers and headphones. The smartphone will come with the fast charging support and will feature a front mounted Finger print scanner.
Is 6 GB RAM an Overkill ?
If you are wondering that is 6 GB RAM an overkill will the smartphone ever will be able to use it. I think we don’t need anything more than 3-4 GB for at least 2 years from now. Currently 2 GB is sufficient and 3-4 GB gives a solid future proofing.
Having 6 GB in the smartphone may make it future proof for 4 years, but that is not going to happen , who uses a smartphone for 4 years either way processor and camera and design will get too evolved in that period that it will become outdated either way. So 4GB variants makes more sense to me , like FHD or 2K displays rather than opting for 4K display Sony Xperia Z5 premium.
