Meizu MX6 hits AnTuTu, launch confirmed for July 19
The Meizu MX6 has been long in our rumor section and the interest towards the upcoming phablet is growing by the day. Since the Pro 6 broke pattern with a smaller screen and earlier release, we didn't know what to expect from the MX6.
The latest rumors shed some light though - it will be a 5.5" smartphone with a 1080p AMOLED screen, Helio X20 chipset, metal unibody, and Android Marshmallow with Flyme 5.2. Some reports suggested the MX6 will come with 4GB of RAM, but there will be a cheaper model with 3GB RAM and halved storage (16GB).
Today the Meizu MX6 popped on AnTuTu and spilled the beans on its specs yet again. The databse entry confirms the screen resolution and Helio X20 chipset (Dual-core 2.3 GHz Cortex-A72 & quad-core 2 GHz Cortex-A53 & quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU, Mali-T880MP4 GPU) with 4GB RAM. The chip is a downclocked version of the Helio X25 behind the Meizu Pro 6.
The bigger screen and thus body should allow Meizu to fit a bigger battery, possibly a 4,000 mAh unit.
What's new is the camera setup - as it turns out it differs from all previous rumors for a 20.7MP + 8MP snappers and instead the MX6 should be packing a 12MP main camera and a 5MP selfie shooter.
Another report confirms the official announcement date - July 19. The premiere will happen in the National Convention Center in Beijing. You can clearly see the confirmation on the invitation below.
It seems we are 11 days from the Meizu MX6 premiere and we'll know all the details soon enough. And if you are wondering about the pricing, you should prepare to shell out around $300.

They have some problem with Qualcomm, they only use Exynos or Mediatek ( maybe they will have they own chip soon )

Does Meizu have a special deal or commitment to MediaTek? They make decent phones but that SoC is an automatic dealbreaker.
