Meizu is building a lot of excitement around its upcoming flagship Meizu Pro 6 by teasing the phone's features ahead of its much-awaited launch event in China April 13. The Pro 6 smartphone has been in the news for quite some time now, with sources leaking the potential features of the handset ahead of the official release.

Meizu has already sent out media invites for the launch event that will be held in Beijing Wednesday. The company recently shared an image of the Pro 6 smartphone on Weibo, showing off the rear design of the handset, according to Chinese publication Anzhuo. Based on the leaked image of the unofficial Pro 6 and reports outlining the possible features, we were able to list down a few key specs that will make the Pro 6 a true flagship.

Based on the image leaked by the company's CEO Zhang Huang on Weibo, the rear panel of the Meizu Pro 6 showcases a premium design with curved edges and a unique black satin finish. The company's branding appears just below the camera. What's really interesting is an unidentified sensor under the camera, which several media reports suggest could be a ring of 10 LEDs around a laser autofocus module for enhanced photography.

The handset's close resemblance to iPhone in early leaked images created confusion for it being an iPhone 7, but the company's VP Li Nan cleared the air around it with a real-life teaser image of the Pro 6 last month. It's clear that the design of the Pro 6 smartphone will be nothing short of great looks.

Meizu Pro 6 is said to come with an impressive spec-sheet. Based on what we have heard so far, the Pro 6 will sport a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, a 21MP primary camera, 5MP front snapper, a 3500mAh battery with fast charging tech and a USB Type-C port. The handset will also feature a physical home button with a fingerprint scanner integrated within.

It is almost certain that Meizu Pro 6 will exclusively be the first device to be powered by MediaTek's latest 10-core Helio X25 processor, clocking speeds at 2.3GHz and use Mali T880 MP4 GPU for graphics. The handset is expected to come with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage for a high-end variant and 4GB RAM and 64GB storage for an entry-level variant.

Considering these specs actually make it to the Pro 6, it is possible the handset could be priced on a higher scale. Meizu hasn't officially confirmed any of the detail specifications of the handset, however, we would find out more this Wednesday.
