The high-end Meizu Pro 5 has been unveiled in China for a price of $439. Meanwhile, the benchmark test results are out and as it turns out, the Pro 5 has beaten the mighty Samsung Galaxy S6, using the South Korean tech giant’s own Exynos 7420 SoC.
The new Meizu Pro 5 specifications include a big 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 1,080 x 1,920 pixels screen resolution. This handset houses a sleek-looking sturdy metallic chassis and it apparently has the charm of the iPhone’s exterior. However, the stand-out configuration of this smartphone is the processor unit.
Meizu has opted for Samsung’s Exynos 7420 SoC to power the device. It is worth noting that the Exynos 7420 is the same chipset seen in the flagship Galaxy S6 and the phablet Galaxy Note 5. This powerful chipset has reportedly been manufactured by utilizing the now-famous 14 nm FinFET process.
Going by the benchmark results, Phone Arena said that the Meizu Pro 5’s Exynos 7420 has trumped the same chip housed in Samsung's own Galaxy S6. To be specific, the Meizu handset has apparently scored 77,768 points in AnTuTu, whereas the S6 amassed only 68,944 points. Speaking of Geekbench testing, the Meizu Pro 5 has tallied a total of 5,593 points, while the Samsung device settles for 5,058.
Moving on to the key Meizu Pro 5 specifications, the device runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with Flyme 5 UI on top of it. It comes backed by 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, depending on the size of the internal storage. The available built-in storage choices include 32 GB and 64 GB.
Speaking of camera specification, the phone features a 21-megapixel rear-facing sensor with 4G video capturing capability and a gracious 5-megapixel front-facing selfie clicker. In addition to the standard connectivity options, the Pro 5 also supports the advanced “4G+” network guaranteeing 300 Mbps speed, VoLTE and USB Type C connector.
