Just as we published the Meizu MX5 concept render that surfaced, we get an actual specification leak regarding the device itself. It seems a bit early for such news to start showing up considering the phone will most likely launch in September, or at least Q4 2015. This isn’t the first whisper we’ve heard regarding this device though, back in December a rumor surfaced very similar to this one actually. Anyhow, let’s check out this new rumor and see what it has to say, shall we.
According to this leak from China, the Meizu MX5 will feature a 5.5-inch QuadHD (2560 x 1440) display, while a fingerprint scanner will also be a part of the package. It is still unknown if this scanner will be located on the front or the back of the device though, Meizu might opt to stick with their circle capacitive button on the front, which would mean the fingerprint scanner will be implemented on the back of the device (similar to Huawei Ascend Mate 7’s sensor). It is also said that the device will be powered by MediaTek’s chip, just like its predecessor, the rumor doesn’t say which model though. 4GB of RAM is also mentioned here, and the most interesting part of all this, is the 41-megapixel camera that is mentioned. We’ve already seen this sensor mentioned back in December, and this new rumor brings forth the very same info. This is allegedly the Nokia’s PureView sensor, though that seems a bit far-fetched at the moment, but who knows.
Meizu really did a great job last year, and the company will definitely grow in 2015. They have all sorts of plans ahead of them, and Alibaba’s recent $500 million investment will surely help the company achieve many of its plans. Meizu is expected to release the Ubuntu-powered smartphone at MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona next month, and who knows what will they unveil after that. The Meizu MX5 quite probably won’t launch before September though, so don’t hold your breath for that, we’ll see many more rumors and leaks surface before the company unveils their new flagship.
