Meizu M6s Review: Meizu just announced an update to the M5s, a bezel-less M6s. The new device is stunning and powered by the Exynos 7872 chipset, Samsung’s first SoC with Cortex A73 cores.
Meizu M6s Design
In terms of bodywork, it looks exactly like the M5s but without the physical home button and a bezel-less display. At the back, it houses the rear camera at the top middle while the flashlight is underneath.
The Meizu logo is still where it is, at the centre of this stunning device. The fingerprint sensor was however moved to the side of the phone, below the power button for easy access. Overall, the smartphone still looks sharp and classy as well.
Meizu M6s Display
Meizu is famous for always trying to go crazy with their screen of late. And they did wonders with the M6s, as they removed the physical home button to achieve the bezel-less look. That’s not all, the company integrated a new software called ‘Halo button’ on the screen.
The new screen button is pressure sensitive and can be used for navigation. The new Meizu M6s boasts of a stunning 5.7-inch bezel-less IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen. With a screen resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels and 282ppi density to bring your movies and games to life.

This affordable smartphone comes in two internal storage versions. One with 32GB while the other with 64GB, although both are upgradeable up to 256GB using MicroSD. Meizu M6s runs on Android 7.0 Nougat OS, which is disappointing for a device released in 2018.
