Meizu is apparently trying to segregate the “MX” lineup of devices and hence, a new series named “Meizu Pro 5” is gearing up for release. It’s worth reminding that, Meizu introduced a jumbo version of the flagship MX4 as the “Meizu MX4 Pro.”
The flagship Meizu MX5 was released back in July. Following the release, the company’s “Pro” version of the flagship will be unveiled as a new series in the form of “Meizu Pro 5” and not as “Meizu MX5 Pro,” as rumored earlier. Meanwhile, freshly leaked images of the handset show a retail box with the logo of Meizu on the side, along with the device name embossed on the top.
Speaking of Meizu PRO 5 specifications, GSM Arena said that the handset will apparently be released as two variants. Under the hood, the device will be powered by either a Samsung Exynos 7420 chipset or MediaTek's Helio X20 with a one-of-a-kind deca-core processor. Notably, the deca-core version was caught visiting a benchmark testing site earlier. Meanwhile, Meizu's Vice President has reportedly stated that, the company will not opt for the overheating issue prone Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC for its Pro 5 lineup.
When it comes to memory specification, the Meizu Pro 5 will apparently come equipped with 32 GB of in-built storage space. The handset will flaunt a 5.5-inch display, bundled with 1080p screen resolution. In addition, the under the hood configurations will be backed by either a 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM configuration. There will also be a 21-megapixel rear-facing camera unit, however, the front-facing snapper is unknown at this point.
As far as the Meizu Pro 5 price goes, the smartphone will reportedly cost nearly $470. The Pro 5 release date has been scheduled for Sept. 25, however, the Chinese tech giant has not yet confirmed the specifications so far.
