Meizu PRO 6 debuts with a ten-core CPU, 21-megapixel camera

The first phone to pack Mediatek's 10-core processor, the PRO 6 also boasts 4GB RAM, and a custom Android UI.

The battle for unlocked Android smartphones with killer hardware gets more interesting today as the Meizu PRO 6 arrives.

Powered by a Flyme 5, custom version of Android 5.1, the PRO 6 features a 3D Press software experience not unlike what Apple does with 3D Touch. As to how that translates in real world practice will remain to be seen.

The PRO 6 comes with a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display and a sleek, unibody metal design. Screen resolution is pegged at 1920 x 1080 pixels.


The handset boasts a very slim 7.2mm chassis and offers up very small antenna lines. Moreover, you’ll note that it doesn’t have a big protruding camera bump on the back.

Where things get even more interesting, the Meizu PRO 6 draws strength from a 10-core MediaTek Helio X25 processor with 4GB RAM. Reportedly, this is the first phone to pack a deca-core processor.

The PRO 6 packs a 21-megapixel Sony IMX230 sensor with a 10-LED ring flash and laser auto-focus. The front-facing camera features 5-megapixels. In terms of storage, the phone comes with either 32GB or 64GB of space; connectivity options include 4G FDD-LTE, 3G WCDMA, 2G GSM, 4G TD-LTE, and 3G TD-SCDMA.


Other specifications include a fingerprint reader and a 2560mAh battery. Although it’s a lower capacity as compared to its competitors, the USB-C port should allow for very fast charging. According to Meizu, the phone can go from 0-100 percent in one hour.

It is not clear which markets will offer the Meizu PRO 6 just yet. Pricing for the 32GB model is listed at 2499RMB ($386USD) while the 64GB comes in slightly higher at is 2799RMB (432USD).
