Helio X20 costs Yuan 1999 (270 Eur, $299)

After Meizu MX5 came the MX6 and yet again the company chose the deca-core Helio X20 processor and packed it in a 5.5 inch phone that is 7.25 millimeters thin. Let’s not forget that the Helio X20 also brings the Cat 6. modem in play with support for carrier aggregation. 

There were a lot of leaks about the Meizu MX 6 and most of them claimed that Helio X20 will be the part of the phone. This is the second deca-core for Meizu as the Meizu 6 Pro also uses a bit faster Helio X25 processor and works really well.

Meizu MX6 is powered by the Helio X20 chip and comes with a deca-core processor (2x A72 at 2.3GHz, 4x A53 at 2.0GHz, 4x A53 at 1.4GHz), Mali-T880MP4 GPU, and 4GB of RAM. This is a 5.5 inch phone using  Full HD with Sharp TDDI technology and 1500:1 typical contrast.


The surprising thing is that Meizu now uses a 12 megapixel Sony IMX386 1/2.9" sensor with 1.25µm pixel size and f/2.0 lens, phase-detection AF (PFAF), and dual-tone flash. So far, this is the best camera Meizu ever put in a phone and it may give  flagship Samsung phones  a run for the money.

The front face camera has 5 megapixel resolution, four element lens, f/2.0 aperture, FotoNation 2.0 and Face AE support. Of course like all modern phones it supports fingerprint unlocking and comes with Android 6.0 powered FlyMe 5.5 operating system.

The phone packs a 3060 mAh battery that can charge from 0 to full in 75 minutes via 24W peak charging power. This is another phone that started using USB Type-C  but slowly and surely is becoming a standard, even though it makes some phones thicker.

The phone weighs 155 grams, and measures 153.6 x 75.2 x 7.25mm and comes in golden, gray, silver and "rose gold". The Meizu MX6 comes in 32GB and 64GB version without microSD support. 

This phone will probably be popular with Meizu MX5 and MX4 users looking to upgrade and who like the 5.5 inch phone form factor. The Meizu 6 Pro with Helio X25 and 5.2 inch screen was too small for many, and now people have an option.
