Meizu lineup for 2016 leaked, Pro 6 to come with Exynos 8890 chip and QHD display
The Meizu Pro 6 has been a regular in our news section, regardless of the fact that it's still nowhere near official status. A whole bunch of other Meizu smartphones are to be expected this year though, detailed in a leaked document - complete with specs and pricing.
Bottom to top, the lineup starts with the Meizu m3, featuring a 5-inch 720p LCD screen, 2,800mAh battery, and unknown chipset. Prices are listed at CNY 599 ($92) for the 16GB version and CNY 200 on top for twice the storage.
Meizu m1 metal
The Meizu m3 note ups display diagonal to 5.5 inches, resolution to FullHD, and battery capacity to 3,200mAh. This one is said to be powered by the Mediatek Helio P10 chipset. Prices are CNY 799/999 ($123/$154) for the 16GB and 32GB versions, respectively. Then it's the Meizu m2 metal (or metal 2), which gets the more powerful Mediatek Helio X20 chip and mTouch 3.0 fingerprint sensor, and that comes at a CNY 200 premium over the m3 note.
Which brings us to the first of the minis, the MX6 mini. 4.7-inch FullHD Super AMOLED display and Helio X20, mTouch 3.0, and 2,800mAh battery, all for CNY 1,499 ($230) for the 16GB base storage. The proper MX6 has very much the same specs, save for the 5.5-inch diagonal and 3,300mAh battery. Prices start at CNY 1,799 ($277).
Flagship mini enthusiasts will drool over the Pro 6 mini, though. This one is powered by the slightly modified Helio X25, which has its Cortex-A72 cores clocked higher than in the X20. The Pro 6 mini also gets an updated fingerprint reader (mTouch 3.1) and 30-watt fast charging. Base storage is 32GB, and the price tag is CNY 2299 ($355).
Meizu Pro 5
The Meizu Pro 6 also stars in the leaked document. Sitting atop the lineup, it gets some exclusive features - its 5.7-inch display has QHD resolution, storage is UFS3.0, while all the rest have eMMC5.1 chips, and battery capacity is the largest at 3,500mAh. It's also said to be powered by Samsung's Exynos 8890 chipset, while at the joint Mediatek/Meizu event for the Helio X25 announcement it was stated that the Pro 6 will come with this precise SoC.
The above table is a nice and clear representation of what to expect from Meizu in 2016. While it certainly looks logical and believable, you'd be best-advised to take it with a reasonable dose of skepticism.

Splitting hairs and then repeating what I've already explicitly said. Good job.

You don't even know what in-house processors mean. Qualcomm has been doing these for years. They are designs bought from ARM and modified to improve perfomance. Qualcomm started these with Krait CPU Cores. This is Samsung's first try with the M1(Mong...
