this month, we told you that Meizu
would be skipping the Meizu MX5 Pro. That tip
came from a Meizu executive, who said that the manufacturer would be replacing
the phone with a handset from a new series. Whether or not this is that
handset, images have leaked today of a new model called the Meizu MX5 Pro
Plus. Speculation has this handset powered by the Samsung Exynos 7420,
the chipset providing the horsepower for the Samsung
Galaxy S6, Samsung
Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy Note5 and the Samsung
Galaxy S6 edge+. However, the Snapdragon 820 is
also linked to this model via another rumor. Either way, this phone is probably
going to be quite zippy.
Another rumor has the Meizu MX5 Pro Plus being a
multi-tasking monster with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM inside. Imaging wise, we expect to
see a 20.7MP rear-facing camera handling photography chores for the phone.
While the Meizu MX5 Pro Plus apparently made a
trip through the AnTuTu benchmark site, the results have been blurred out. The
model number also can't be found, which could have helped us check out the
specs on the phone. For now, we recommend taking this story with a grain of
salt until Meizu announces what could be its new top-shelf handset.
We have images from Chinese tipster @KJuma, allegedly
showing off the MX5 Pro Plus.
