Meizu MX5 Pro September 2015 release date: handheld rumored to arrive in Q4; may be most powerful smartphone in the series


Rumors have it that Chinese smartphone maker Meizu will release the next installment to its flagship series, MX5 Pro during fourth quarter this year.

Reports previously claimed that the handheld may arrive at the end of this month after Meizu reportedly received certification from the China Quality Certification Center, but it did not happen.

Following the company’s previous launch of MX5’s predecessors, MX5 Pro may arrive any time between October and November, Android Headlines reported.

When it comes to specifications, it may have a 6-inch High Definition Quality display with 1536 x 2560 pixel resolution or simply a 2K resolution at the ratio of 15:9. It also deems to support the same rear lens the recently announced MX5 and MX4 Pro features a powerful 20.7 megapixel shooter that can shoot 2160p videos and clips.

Under the hood, it is suggested to be powered by MediaTek Helio X10 processor which may be combined with 4GB RAM. The battery is said to have 4,000mAh capacity and the body will be made of metal.

Another report speculated that it may come with Exynos 7420 chipset, the same processor that has wowed users of the premium Samsung Galaxy S6 and a back-covering made using a flat glass pane.

It may run using Android Lollipop Operating System that can be incorporated on Meizu’s own user interface called Flyme. A fingerprint sensor may also be included that may delight some users.

According to Christian Today, in comparison to the smartphone it followed in the series, MX4 Pro has a 5.5-inch screen with 1536×2560 resolution, same camera, and a slightly smaller battery at 3350 mAh. The software included is the older version of Android OS Kitkat 4.4.4 alongside Flyme 4.0.

Moreover, for mid-range successor to affordable M1, “Meizu M2” may also come in the next couple of weeks before summer ends.
