Meizu appears to be getting ready to release its MX6, the successor of the Meizu MX5 that was released in July last year. Several details of the handset have been leaked over the last few weeks, and now it has appeared that the device may hit the stores next month.

There are reports doing the rounds that the handset could come in July by the time its predecessor completes a year cycle in the market, or even by the end of the year, but it may arrive earlier than expected. GizmoChina has claimed, citing certain reports from China, that the Meizu MX6 would be unveiled on June 20. 

The report went on to claim that the price of the 3GB RAM model could start at $275 and the 4GB RAM variant at $305.

A Weibo post (via TheGadgetOx) had earlier noted that the MX6 will come in two variants -- one with a 32GB internal memory and a 3GB RAM, and the other with a 64GB internal storage and a 4GB RAM. It is expected to sport a slim, metallic body design and powered by a Mediatek Helio X20 processor. One feature that may attract the attention of gadget lovers is its 20.7MP rear camera and an 8MP front-snapper. 

It is also reported that the device will sport a display with 1,080x1,920pixel resolution, run Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based Flyme OS UI and powered by a 4,000mAh battery.

We may see Meizu MX6 with a noticeable upgrade from its predecessor MX5, which has a 5.5-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 1,080x1,920 pixels (401 ppi pixel density), a Mediatek MT6795 Helio X10 processor, Android 5.0.1 Lollipop, 16/32/64GB internal memory, 3GB RAM, and a 3,150mAh battery. The device also mounts a 20.7MP main camera with f/2.2 aperture, laser autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash, 1/2.3" sensor size and 1.2 µm pixel size features, and a 5MP front-snapper with f/2.2 aperture.
