Meizu is anticipated to roll out a new flagship smartphone. It may not be an expensive model but it’s expected to be another bestseller. We noted last week it could be the Meizu Pro 7 based on renders but now we’re learning that the device could also be called the M96. We were earlier teased of a September 3 announcement but it seems it will happen later on September 13 instead. So far, we’ve been hearing that this Pro 6 successor will be equipped with an Exynos 8890 chipset, dual camera system, and a curved screen which could make it a S7 edge or Note 7 rival–but still with an affordable price.

The Meizu phone recently appeared on an AnTuTu benchmark document with some information. Listed are the features we know already: Samsung Exynos 8890, Mali T880, 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, 5MP selfie shooter plus 12MP rear camera, 32GB built-in storage, and 4GB RAM.

The device is powered by Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow but we’re crossing out fingers it will be eligible for Android Nougat. Known this early as the Meizu M96, this device was once taught to be the Meizu M3E which turned out to be a different model.

It’s interesting that the Meziu phone will be powered by a Samsung Exynos chip
because the Chinese phone maker usually uses Mediatek Helio processor. The use of Exynos only means this is a high-end model. No doubt about that now because display boasts of 2560 × 1440 resolution as well. Let’s wait for September 3 or 13 to find out if all these information are true.
