Meizu MX5 is the unannounced smartphone that will replace last year's flagship, the Meizu MX4. New unofficial photos of the Meizu MX5 have surfaced that show the manufacturer is working on a very high-end device.

Gizmo China reported the Meizu MX5 photos reveal the device will sport a bezelless display, meaning no side bezels, allowing the display to stretch all the way to the sides of the device. The top and the bottom bezels of the device appear narrow.

Below the display, there is a circle-shaped, touch-sensitive home key. Instead of embedding the fingerprint scanner beneath the home key, the manufacturer has placed it on the rear of the device. The handset will feature a full-metal unibody exterior. From the images, it can be clearly seen the corners of the device are rounded. 

Gizmo China reported the images may not reflect the final design of the Meizu MX5. However, the photos do hint at the kind of device Meizu is working on to succeed the MX4.

The Meizu MX5 will be powered by MediaTek MT6795 chipset that contains an octa-core processor. It can deliver a clocking speed of 2.2 GHz. As of this writing, the information on the amount of RAM and camera configurations are still under the wraps. However, Gizmo China claims the rear camera will arrive with support for infrared focus.

Since Meizu has not confirmed the existence of the device, details like pricing and availability are unavailable. However, rumors indicate the Meizu MX5 will be unleashed June 30, Gizmo China said.  

Speculation also has Meizu working on the Meizu M1 Note 2. Except for inclusion of a full HD resolution screen and fingerprint sensor, the design and specs of the device will be almost same as those of the original Meizu M1 Note released in January. The Meizu M1 Note 2 will be more expensive than the original device. It is expected to be released June 2.
