Meizu had previously confirmed that it would unveil the Pro 6 on April 13th and it’s done just that today. The Pro 6 is Meizu’s new flagship smartphone and the company claims that this is the world’s first 10 core smartphone. It features a decacore processor with 4GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage and a 21 megapixel rear camera with a ring flash.
Meizu is just one of the many Chinese smartphone manufacturers that’s flooding the market with relatively cheap handsets that feature top specifications. Other local manufacturers that have made a name for themselves include Xiaomi, OnePlus, Oppo and more.
The new flagship has a design similar to the Pro 5. One major change is that the size has been decreased from 5.7 inches to 5.2 inches. It also features a full HD display, 5 megapixel front camera for video calls and selfies and a 64GB memory option.
Meizu touts the handset’s MediaTek Helio X25 processor making this handset the first in the market to have a 10 core processor under the hood. The figure is good enough for bragging rights as a higher number of cores doesn’t necessarily mean the processor will be able to outperform other flagship processors like the Snapdragon 820 and the Exynos 8890.
The company has also managed to squeeze in a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port, Cirrus Logic CS43L36 audio chip and even a 3D Press screen which is Meizu’s version of Apple’s 3D Touch technology into a handset that starts at $385.
