January 17 is the launch date of the new Meizu M6s, but specs and promo materials leaked on the Chinese social network Weibo revealing almost everything there is to know about it. The new phone will be the first Meizu handset with 18:9 screen and will have a fingerprint scanner on its side. The M6s will arrive with a 14nm Exynos 7872 chipset.
The back will keep the minimalist style already seen in the Meizu M6 - one 16 MP camera, LED flash and nothing else. The front will be mostly occupied by a 5.7” screen with HD+ resolution (1440 x 720 pixels). There will also be a selfie snapper with 8 MP sensor.
The new Exynos chipset will have hexa-core CPU with two of them being Cortex-A73, clocked at 2.0 GHz for performance and four more Cortex-A53 at 1.6 GHz for power efficiency. The GPU is Mali-G71 MP3. The RAM will be 3 GB, coupled with either 32 GB or 64 GB storage.
The specs sheet also reveal Flyme OS, based on Android 7.0 Nougat. The battery will have 3,000 mAh capacity. We are looking forward to the official announcement when the rest of the specs will be unveiled, along with pricing and availability details.
