Meizu has been playing both ends of the CPU market for a long while now, flirting with Qualcomm, MediaTek and Samsung for its phone chipsets. They’ve launched multiple Exynos and MediaTek models and now they’re at it again, supposedly. Leaks regarding the Meizu M6S are showing that the device is meant for arrive in an Exynos and MediaTek version.
The Meizu M6S has been certified by TENAA recently, which confirmed it’ll have an Exynos 7872 version and MediaTek MT6750 version. The Exynos model is meant for the Chinese market and the MediaTek one for the international one, but it could end up being the other way around. The debut is scheduled for January 17th and the phone has leaked and appeared in AnTuTu as the “Meizu mblu 6S”, which could end up being its official name.
The handset scored a bit under 100.000 points, which is not bad at all. The TENAA listing also mentions a bunch of midrange specs, like a 5.7 inch 1440 x 720 pixel screen with an 18:9 aspect, 32 GB of storage, 3 GB of RAM and Android 7.0 Nougat as the OS. There’s a 2930 mAh battery and a side mounted fingerprint scanner. No info about the camera, but I expect a typical 13 MP back + 5 MP front sensor combo.
