Chinese smartphone maker Meizu today sent out press invites to a media event that it will be holding in China later this month. At the August 23 event, Meizu will be unveiling the M6 Note. What’s interesting is that Meizu has chosen to announce the M6 Note on the same day when Samsung will be taking the wraps off its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note8. Previously, it was rumored that the M6 Note will be announced on the 6th of September.
The invite does not give out any clues regarding the specs of the handset, but the “Can you go faster?” question on the invite suggests it could be powered by a high-end SoC under the hood. If rumors are to be believed, the chipset in question could be the Helio P25. Manufactured on a 16nm process, the MediaTek Helio P25 is an octa-core chipset with four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.6 GHz and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz. Graphics are taken care of by the integrated ARM Mali-T880 MP2 GPU clocked at 1GHz. It supports up to dual 13MP or single 24MP primary camera and video recording up to 4K UHD resolution. It should be noted that the Helio P25 chipset is also rumored to power the standard variant of Meizu’s upcoming Pro 7 flagship smartphone.
As far as the rest of the specs are concerned, rumors suggest the M6 Note will feature a 5.5-inch display and come in two different versions. While the core specs will remain identical, the two M6 Note versions will differ in terms of memory. At the rear, M6 Note is likely to sport a dual-camera setup, although the exact resolution of the two sensors and other details haven’t been revealed just yet. The only other info that has been rumored is a 4000mAh capacity battery.
