Meizu MX5-8

A report from China suggests that Meizu is gearing up to launch a new high-end smartphone this year called the Meizu Pro 6. The likely successor to last year’s Pro 5 is said to come with Samsung’s high-end Exynos 8890 processor found in the Galaxy S7, 128GB of internal memory, and 6GB of RAM. Because you can never have enough RAM, right?

Along with the huge memory pool, the same rumor states that the Meizu Pro 6 will also come with a 4GB RAM, 64GB storage option as well. Other specifications are said to include a 1080p display with 3D/Force Touch technology, fast charging support, and the company’s Flyme 6.0 operating system and a few other unique pieces of software.

Even if this report turns out to be true, the Meizu Pro 6 won’t be the first smartphone to feature a whopping 6GB of RAM. That particular milestone has already been claimed by the Vivo Xplay 5, which was announced at the start of the month.

The Meizu Pro 6 isn’t likely to be unveiled until the third or fourth quarter of the year. While we wait, the company is expected to announce its mid-tier Meizu MX6 smartphone sometime in April.
