Meizu is among the best smartphone makers. Though it is still unable to compete with Huawei, OnePlus, Vivo, Oppo and Xiaomi, no one can doubt about its ambitions. The manufacturer has revised its price policy, and this is the first move to get closer (even to outrun) to its main rivals. The latest phone with such goals is the Meizu M6 Note, which has grabbed the title of the most affordable mid-range smartphone from the Xioami Mi 5X. But as the name suggests, it comes with a larger screen, which affects the pricing as well as it is not comfortable for those who have a small palm. So it’s been expected the smaller variant of this amazing handset will come soon. Last Wednesday, on September 20 Meizu hold a special conference and unveiled the anticipated version of this handset dubbed simply the Meizu M6. It’s the next member of the big Blue Charm family. So we are offering to take a glance at the blue version. (We have already come in with the unboxing photos of the Meizu M6 Note Blue (Peacock green), and we have to state it looks the way better than the obsidian black variant. The same should be true for the original M6 as well.)
We have been informed about this device in 2016, when an interesting document dubbed the Meizu plan for 2017 leaked. According to it the Meizu M6 Note should appear on the market in October and it should sport a MediaTek P20 chip. As for the Meizu M6, it should come in December with a Snapdragon 626 on board. Now we can state, Meizu has modified its plan and the M6 Note was launched in September with a Snapdragon 625, while the lighter version in face of the Meizu M6 came at the end of September and it sports a MediaTek MT6750 SoC. Though it’s confusing (or disappointing for some people), this sounds more logical. It’s an octa-core 64 bit processor clocked at 1.5GHz.
Apart of this, the Meizu M6 is packed with a 5.2-inch 720p screen, 8MP front shooter, 13MP rear camera, 3070mAh battery, and two memory combinations of 2+16GB and 3+32GB. The former one is priced at 699 yuan ($106), while the latter comes at 899 yuan ($136). As usual, the phone comes with an mTouch button supporting fingerprint payment. The phone runs on Flyme 6.0 OS based on Android 7.0.
Generally, the Meizu M6 looks like other Blue Charm line models, but as we are dealing with an entry-level smartphone, it’s reasonable to see a non-metal housing. This handset uses NCVM vacuum coating technology and 3D laser engraving process for the back, which is made of polycarbonate material. That’s why it provides a feeling of a metal body. There are several color options you can choose from (moonlight silver, champagne gold, and matte black), but we have got our hands on the blue variant. Enjoy the first unboxing photos.
