There was a lot of buzz regarding what Meizu’s next flagship would be a little while ago. Some were saying they would skip over the MX5 Pro line, and then new “alleged” MX5 Pro Plus images got leaked out. Nobody really knows what Meizu’s plan is, but we believe to know a little bit today. We already established that the next flagship will be using Samsung’s Exynos 7420 Chipset, as it’s currently the most powerful mobile processor on the market (beating Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 in almost every department.) Let’s go over what the AnTuTu benchmark listing had to say for this device.
Other claims from the Chinese source is that the ME5 will feature a fingerprint scanner on the back-side of the device, and seems to confidently confirm the display size of 5.5 Inches, and what seems to be another variant of this device. The Meizu ME5 might come with 2 variants, one with the Exynos 7420, and the other with Mediatek’s Deca-Core Helio X20 SoC. The source also claimed the phone could be priced as high as 5000 Yuan, which means it will equate to 4 US, which is pretty insane even for a Meizu product.
In terms of design, the source claims the Meizu ME5 will follow a similar construction design as the Samsung Galaxy S6, with a metal border surrounding it and possibly even a dual-sided curved display, except it utilizes 2.5D glass. Some of what the Chinese sources claim seem to differ from the AnTuTu benchmarks, as they claimed, once again, the RAM capacity is 4GB instead of 3GB. We may possibly be looking at the higher end variant here.
