One of the emerging smartphone manufacturer named Meizu has been changing its game by updating the very popular Flyme OS to version 6. The Flyme 6 OS listed below is actually a Public Beta version and the official release is near too. Though the Flyme 6 ROM is not based on the latest Android 7.1 Nougat, but it still brings some stunning features. Based on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, it has DND, App permissions, Notification managements, and much more. This update benefits all the Meizu variants. Moreover, in order to get the Android 7.1.2 Nougat on your Meizu device get either the Resurrection Remix 5.8.3+ or the Lineage OS 14.1.
The new version of ROM has become quite popular just like the MIUI ROM for Xiaomi. The best way to gain popularity for a small term manufacturer is by making a popular open source Android OS just like the Flyme OS. It supports many Android devices from other manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, OnePlus, Xiaomi, Google Nexus, Motorola, etc. This makes Meizu more popular as the ROM can be ported to other third-party devices via custom ROMS.
Here with the Flyme 6 ROM you get a completely revamped user interface,
Intelligent Thinking Engine, Game Mode, Auto-repair at Night with One Mind, Process Reaper, Flash Launch, Kid Space, Time Machine for Contacts, Recycle Bin, Notification Management like Intelligent Notification Storage and Notification Management Shortcut, Brand-new Multi-task Management, Zero-delay Camera, Security and Payment options, and much more.
