On the heels of alleged live images of the Meizu MX5 Pro making rounds online, a new press photo of the upcoming Meizu smartphone has cropped up ahead of the device's impending release. The render shows the handset in gray hue with Flyme 5.0 OS and metallic body in tow.

The alleged new official press render has originated from China’s Weibo. The render showcases a beautiful, sleek device with full metal exterior. On the software front, the handset will be running on the Android-based Flyme 5.0 OS.

As far as the rumored Meizu MX5 Pro specifications go, the phone will apparently feature either a 5.5-inch or 5.7-inch display, bundled with 1080p screen resolution, GSK Arena reported. Under the hood, the device will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 or MediaTek’s Helio X20 chipset and backed by a phenomenal 4 GB of RAM. Speaking of Helio X20 chip, this silicon works in tandem with a one-of-a-kind, powerful deca-core SoC. In any case, Qualcomm chipset is out of the picture because Meizu's Vice President had earlier acknowledged that the Chinese tech titan will not utilize the overheating problem prone Snapdragon 810 chipset on its Pro series of handsets.

When it comes to camera configuration, the Meizu MX5 Pro will reportedly sport a cool 21-megapixel rear-facing sensor. In addition, TechGadgetSZ said that there will also be a gracious 5-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies and live chats.

The Meizu MX5 Pro price, on the other hand, is quoted to be less than $500. The handset will reportedly hit the store shelves of China soon. However, there is no information available to ascertain if this device will be released outside China.
