Today, Meizu pulled the wraps off its latest top-of-the-line smartphone, the PRO 6 Plus. This device marks the latest entry into the PRO line and also a more souped-up version of the Pro 6 from earlier this year. It also features the latest version of the Android-based Flyme operating system.
The PRO 6 Plus comes with a 5.7" QHD Super AMOLED display (518 PPI), the Exynos 8890 CPU and Mali-T880 MP12 GPU, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB/128GB of UFS 2.0 storage, USB-C 3.1, 12MP f/2.0 rear and 5MP front cameras, a fingerprint sensor, and a 3,400mAh battery. Meizu has thrown in an ES9018K2M 32-bit DAC and an AD45275 amplifier for some theoretically good sound. It supports 24W fast charging, too.
In addition to the announcement of the impressive PRO 6 Plus, Meizu also revealed version 6 of its Flyme OS. This is similar to Xiaomi's MIUI or Huawei's EMUI. The apparent focus is on simplicity and not bugging the user with superfluous things ("irrelevant factors" are what Meizu calls them).
The OS also includes the AI called One Mind, which adjusts system performance based on user preference. Basically, it attempts to identify the most used apps and allocates more resources to them to make them run smoothly. Meizu is also proud of some 400+ features that have been added to Flyme 6, including an overhauled photo capturing process and a new phone finder.
The PRO 6 Plus comes in three colors: gray, champagne gold, and silver. Availability includes a fair chunk of the world, excluding the U.S.. The price appears to be in the range of 2,999 CNY ($435) for the 64GB model and 3,299 CNY ($479 USD) for the 128GB model. If true, that is not too bad at all considering everything included with the phone.
