Meizu Pro 6 was an example of what the Meizu could really do. Even though it carried many features and designed styles from the iPhone, it succeeded to provide a full high-end experience for under $400. Now, Meizu has a new flagship phone. It is not the Pro 7. Instead, it is an upgraded Pro 6, simply called as Pro 6 Plus.
When compared to the regular model, it is bigger, and basically faster. To start with, Pro 6 Plus equips a 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 OLED screen, which is not only bigger than the regular model’s 5.2-inch display, but has more pixels as well. However, the biggest change is its processor. Normally, we were used to use MediaTek CPUs on low and mid-end Meizu phones, but they were using Exynos processors on the high-end phones. Pro 6 was an exception though. It didn’t use Exynos as expected, but instead, it was being powered by Helio X25. Now, Meizu continues with their tradition by putting Exynos 8890 to the Pro 6 Plus.
There is also a bigger battery with a capacity of 3400 mAh. Even though it can be consider a quite improvement over last year’s 2,560mAh battery, don’t forget the size difference.
However, that is pretty much everything new with its hardware. Otherwise, Pro 6 Plus looks like the Pro 6. Nevertheless, Meizu also made changes with the software. So far, 6 Plus is company’s one of the first phones to run Flyme 6, which, according to them, comes with more than 400 changes.
There is also the M3X, which seems like an upgrade over Meizu M3 Note. It comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD screen, but its screen is brighter than the other members of the M3 family. Furthermore, M3X is powered by MediaTek Helio P20 chipset alongside with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM depending on the main storage.
