Meizu today unveiled its latest handset in China: the MX6. With the handset, the company aims to take on the likes of the Xiaomi Mi5, OnePlus 3, and LeEco Le 2 Max. The handset shares a similar design as Meizu’s own Pro 6, though it features a mere 7.25mm thin waistline making it the thinnest smartphone ever launched by a Chinese company. 

The MX6 features a 5.5-inch Full HD display from Sharp and lacks the 3D Touch functionality that is found on the Pro 6. It is protected by a 2.5D glass. The handset is powered by MediaTek’s deca-core Helio X20 chip clocked at 2.3GHz that also comprises of ARM’s Mali T880-MP4 GPU. Other specs of the handset include 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There is also a fingerprint scanner integrated into the home button located at the front of the device.

Perhaps the most impressive spec of the MX6 is its camera setup. The handset features Sony’s latest IMX386 sensor which features a 12MP shooter with 1.25u pixels and PDAF. It is paired with an f/2.0 lens and dual-LED flash. The front of the phone houses a 5MP selfie snapper. The 3060mAh battery on the phone might not let it run as long as other phones with bigger batteries. But it makes up for it with the company’s proprietary m-Charge technology that allows it to charge from 0-100% in just 75 minutes. The company achieves this by using a 24W charger and the USB Type-C port.

On the software front, the MX6 runs on Flyme OS 5.5 that is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The handset goes on sale in China from July 30th in Silver, Pink, Gold, and Gray colors. The handset has been priced at CNY 1,999 ($299).
