On January 17, Meizu will unveil its latest smartphone, the M6s. Incidentally, this will be the first model to bear the new mblu brand, at least in China, where the Blue Charm line got spun off into its own division. The same phone will thus also be called mblu S6, depending on market.
The M6s has just received the full certification treatment from TENAA, the relevant Chinese authority. As usual, this means we have some pictures of it to look at, and its specs have been outed as well - though we already knew those from a past benchmark run.
Meizu's first handset to sport an 18:9 touchscreen will be a mid-ranger as its branding implies. It has a 5.7-inch 1,440x720 display, and is powered by Samsung's Exynos 7872 SoC, with a Mali-G71 CPU. You get 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and a 3,000 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging.
The Meizu M6s interestingly has its fingerprint sensor on the right side, under the power button. From the front it looks quite similar to Xiaomi's Redmi 5, which has identical specs for its screen. The M6s should also be priced similarly, at around CNY 1,000 (that's $154 or €127 at the current exchange rates).
Great for Razer and Meizu then. Perhaps Apple could settle their iphone X's crisis regarding their moves by ditching Touch ID completely with a fingerprint scanner on the power button; if "under display" fingerprint sensor still unavailable for the m...
Funny, Apple is actually gonna use MediaTek's modem for their future SoCs.
