It’s about time, as it was launched in its native China a little over a month ago. We still don’t know exactly when, though, but we’ll update this article as soon as we get a reply from Meizu.

While we have mentioned that its body does seem to be inspired by the iPhone, the Meizu Pro 6 Plus actually shares more similarities with Samsung’s ill-fated Note device. The two have the same screen; they’re both AMOLED, they measure 5.7 inches, and their resolution is at 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. The Pro 6 Plus and the Note 7 feature 12- and 5-megapixel rear and front cameras. They both use the same Samsung Exynos 8890 octa-core processor. And they have the same amount of RAM at 4GB and storage at 64GB, though the Meizu phone has a 128GB version but doesn’t have a microSD card slot. These are the major ones.

Of course, you won’t see curvy edges here. Or a stylus, for that matter. The Pro 6 Plus runs its own customized OS, too, which the Chinese company calls Flyme — at least the one for the international variant, as the Chinese model has YunOS. The new Flyme, it says, boasts more than 400 additional features. Too bad it’s based on Android Marshmallow, not Nougat. Hopefully, the device will get an update early this year.
The 64GB Meizu Pro 6 Plus with 2GHz Exynos 8890 chip retails at 2,999 yuan (about P21,700 or $436), while the 128GB variant with 2.3GHz Exynos 8890 processor costs 3,299 yuan (roughly P23,900 or $480). Let’s see how Meizu Philippines will price the smartphone here.
