In 2016, Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Meizu launched quite a few smartphones. Earlier this week, it had launched the Meizu M3E smartphone under the new E-series. It is priced at just 1299 Yuan and came with high-end specifications built into a metal body. Apart from the affordable devices, the company also launched the premium flagship devices Meizu MX6 and Meizu Pro 6 smartphones in China.

Today Antutu revealed specifications of a new Meizu smartphones that was listed as Meizu M96. From the teaser image, we guess the device to be launched under the Pro series and will be officially unveiled on September 3rd in China. The device runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box with the latest Flyme OS on top. It comes with a Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution display and comes powered by the Exynos 8890 SOC.

This is the same processor that powered popular Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge. It comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded with MicroSD card slot. The device also comes with a 12MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. While we expect this device to be the Meizu MX 6 Pro or the company might coming with a premium series. The MX 6 also came with the few similar specifications when compared to the above mentioned device.

But its 5.5-inch display is only limited to Full HD resolution and is powered by the Helio X20 deca-core processor. We can expect the upcoming device to also feature the same 5.5-inch display. If the rumors are to be believed, the company will be soon launching its first curved display smartphone. Yesterday, we also posted the leaked images of Mi Note 3 which suggests the device to feature dual curved display.

Along with this new smartphone, Meizu might also unveil its first smartwatch. It comes with a circular dial and will be powered by Alibaba’s YunOS. Alibaba is one of the investors in Meizu, and it had already launched two smartphones Meizu M3 and Meizu M3E powered YunOS in 2016. The leaked smartwatch comes with metal body with the leather strap. It also two buttons to the right side of the dial.
