Following a few revealing leaks, the Meizu M6 has finally gone official today. The M6 is a minor upgrade over the M5, and perhaps the only major improvements here are a higher-resolution front camera and a newer version of Android (7.1.1 Nougat with Flyme OS 6.0) out of the box.
Meizu M6 goes official
The M6 has a polycarbonate body that looks like it is made of metal, thanks to the use of a process called Non-Conductive Vacuum Metallization (NCVM). The front camera is an 8-megapixel unit with f/2.0 aperture, while the rear camera is a 13-megapixel sensor with an RGBW color sensor for reducing noise in images.
Under the hood, there’s a Helio P10 octa-core processor from MediaTek, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, and 16/32GB of internal storage. All this powers a 5.2-inch HD display, which is accompanied by a home button with the mTouch integrated fingerprint sensor that can unlock the device in just 0.2 seconds. The M6 is fueled by a 3,070 mAh battery, which may not look big but should be able to handle the meagre hardware with aplomb.
Matching the budget-grade hardware is a budget-grade price tag of ¥699 (roughly $108) for the base model with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The 3GB+32GB model is priced at ¥899 (roughly $140). The phone will be offered in black, blue, silver, and gold color options.
