Meizu PRO 5 is a smartphone marvel released by the Chinese OEM. Not only does it have a processor running inside Exynos 7420 at the same frequencies as all of Samsung’s current generation flagships, but it also has better features compared to the latter. However, for those who were waiting to see a Helio X20 version of Meizu PRO 5, an analyst has some bad news for the public.
According to the company’s website
One of the major reasons why Meizu PRO 5 is not coming in a Helio X20 version is because MediaTek’s chipset is manufactured on the 20nm node, which is much higher than Exynos 7420, which is processed on 14nm FinFET, making it far more efficient, but much more expensive to manufacturer. With a Helio X20, the starting price of Meizu PRO 5 will be much lower compared to the pricing details of the newly announced smartphone version.
Irrespective, the handset is a much better device to purchase than any model of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 primarily because of its larger battery capacity, smaller resolution, and of course a microSD card slot with a maximum storage expansion limit of 128GB. When compared to Samsung’s flagships, no device has a removable card slot, which is perhaps the reason why the smartphone is unable to perform well in the market.
