Looks familiar

The Meizu Pro 6 is the latest iClone out of China.

Back to back

The aesthetic similarities the Pro 6 shares with Apple's line of smartphones isn't exclusive to its front.

Middle child

The phone houses a 5.2-inch screen, landing it right in the middle of the displays found on the iPhone 6S (4.7 inches) and 6S Plus (5.5 inches).

Svelte

With dimensions of 148x71x7.3 mm (5.81x2.8x0.29 in), it's just 0.2mm thicker than the iPhone 6S.

Slight differences

Two of the bigger giveaways that this isn't an iPhone is the placement of the camera and the differently placed antenna lines.

Respectable hardware

The Pro 6 (left) has a deca-core MediaTek processor and swiftly performs simple tasks like web browsing and Facebook.

You'll have to go online

Meizu's new flagship isn't officially available in the US, UK or Australia, but can be procured fairly easily online.

One of these is not like the others

The most obvious difference between the Pro 6 and an iPhone is the difference in home button shape.
