Meizu MX 5 news: MX5 to have Pro variant with Exynos chip, 6" display, 4GB RAM


While the upcoming Meizu MX5 is still hot on the rumor mill, an all-new sibling phone is reportedly coming along from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer. 

According to a report by Softpedia, Meizu is planning to release a bigger and more powerful version of the MX5, and this will be called the Meizu MX5 Pro. While the ordinary MX5 is 5.5-inches, the MX5 Pro is bigger as it is expected to come with a 6-inch display with a QHD 2560 x 1400 resolution. It boasts of a 4GB RAM, 1GB more than its standard version, making the phone perfect for heavy gaming and multitasking.

However, its 20 megapixel rear camera with the capability to shoot HD videos with 2160p resolution at 30 fps remains the same as that from the MX5. The specs of the front cam will also be the same at 5 megapixels with the capability to shoot 1080p HD videos. 

One of the two new features and hardware specifications of the rumored Meizu MX5 Pro is its utilization of an oval-shaped physical center button, something that is out of the ordinary for a Meizu phone. The center button won’t lay there as it is though, as it is expected to be equipped with a fingerprint scanner technology.

For its main hardware part, the processor of the rumored MX5 Pro will differ greatly form its smaller variant. The MX5 Pro is rumored to be running under Samsung’s very own Exynos 7420 chipset. This octa-core processor is the same chip that powers the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, so users may already have an idea of the processing power of this new device.

Meizu has yet to make an official announcement to confirm the rumors. 

The Meizu MX5 and MX5 Pro is expected to be release sometime this July.
