An internal document from the company indicating Meizu's smartphone launch roadmap for the coming year, along with the month of introduction has been leaked online.
If a recent leak coming from China is to be believed then Meizu will be launching six new devices for 2017. An internal document from the company indicating Meizu's smartphone launch roadmap for the coming year, along with the month of introduction has been leaked online.
To start with, the company is set to launch the Meizu M5s in February, which will come with a MediaTek MT6753 chipset. Recently, we reported that the device has spotted on the Chinese certification agency, TENAA. The Meizu M5S is listed twice with two different model numbers - M612Q and M612M but share an exactly same set of specifications on TENAA. Along with the TENAA certification, the Meizu M5S has also passed China Compulsory Certification (3C) with the same model numbers.
As per the listing, both M612Q and M612M features a 5.2-inch HD IPS display with a resolution of 720Ã—1280 pixel and is powered 1.3GHz Octa-Core processor. Both the phones come in three variants - 2GB of RAM with 16GB of internal storage, 3GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage. Other specs include 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera, 2930mAh battery, 4G LTE with VoLTE, Bluetooth, a microUSB port, WiFi, GPS. The device will come loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and will be available in Silver, gray, gold and Rose Gold colour options.
As per the documents, the company will unveil the Meizu Pro 7 in June and the device will be powered by a Helio X30 processor. Later in July, the Chinese company will come up with Blue Charm S with octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 chipset.
Moving on, the company is then reported to launch Meizu MX7 in September that will sport a MediaTek Helio P30 SoC. Shortly after that, the brand will reveal the Blue Charm Note 6 in October, which will come with a MediaTek Helio P20. Lastly, Meizu will be launching a device which will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor. This would be interesting, Qualcomm had filed patent infringement complaints against Meizu in China back in June this year and recently in October in United States, Germany and France as well. If the roadmap details are believed to be true, then it seems that two companies have finally agreed on a settlement and we might see more devices with Snapdragon in near future.
