Meizu PRO 5 was not the last smartphone we have seen in 2015 because the company has another event planned for October 21. According to a source, there is a teaser poster suggesting that the device will belong to the company’s Blue Charm Series, meaning that it will belong to the lower tier of smartphones belonging to Meizu. In short, the price of this smartphone is going to be far more affordable compared to MX5, and will probably be available to purchase in the following colors:
As far as its specifications as being spoken about, the upcoming Meizu smartphone is going to be running MediaTek’s MT6573, which is going to be running eight cores of Cortex-A53 at a speed of 1.3GHz. It is also going to be running a different mobile platform, since the source indicates that it will be running YunOS 3.1.6. It will also have a screen size of 5.5 inches, and a resolution of 1080p, which is the exact same configuration as Meizu MX5. However, it will have 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a rear camera with a maximum resolution of 13MP and a front camera of 5MP.
Since MX5 and PRO 5 feature Sony’s IMX230 camera sensor, we should expect that the upcoming device will also be running a sensor belonging to the Japanese company. According to the source once more, the price of the smartphone is going to be 999 Yuan, or less than $160. While it is extremely affordable, we would have been much more impressed with Meizu’s upcoming smartphone had it featured better specifications, since an MT6573 might not bring that much performance as we are hoping to see.
However, the smartphone could become a popular product in certain regions that desire low-priced handsets, so we are going to have to wait and watch to see how the device performs.
