“The MEIZU M6s will sport an 18:9 display and onscreen navigation buttons”
MEIZU’s upcoming smartphone, theM6s(also known as the mBlu S6), has been circulating online for a while now. A couple of live images of the handset turned up last year, which gave us our first look at the handset. We were then made privy to a leaked hands-on video of the device, which showed off the front, left side and rear panel of the device. Now, yet another video of the device has turned up revealingthe mBlu logo and a new unlock pattern.
To begin with, the smartphone is missing the trademark front physical home button called mBack because of the taller 18:9 display and narrower bezels. Apart from serving as the home button, the mBack button took care of the back and recents navigation functions and integrated a fingerprint scanner as well. In the absence of the same, we can see in the video that MEIZU has relied upon on-screen buttons for the M6s. In the video, the user is seen tapping on onscreen home button to wake up the device, which could be similar to what we have seen in the Galaxy S Series of smartphones from Samsung (always on home button). Given that no fingerprint sensor is visible, we assume that it will be side-mounted, as revealed in earlier leaks.
Coming to the spec sheet of the M6s, it is expected to ship with a 5.7-inch 18:9 display with an HD+ resolution of 1,440 x 720 pixels. On the performance side of things, the device will be powered by an hexa-core Exynos 7872 chipset backed by Mali-G71 GPU. The processor is accompanied by 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, which can be further expanded. The primary camera sensor will be 13-megapixels, while on the front there will be a 5-megapixel shooter. It is also said to be powered by a 3,000mAh battery equipped with fast charging support.
The MEIZU M6S is expected to be priced at the equivalent of Rs 25,000. The phone is likely to be unveiled at an event in China soon.
