We’ve seen quite a few Meizu leaks and rumors recently, after months of relative silence as far as Meizu-related news go. We’ve seen some content regarding the Meizu’s upcoming mid-range M1 Note handset, and the Meizu MX5 flagship. That’s not all though, some Avengers-themed Meizu M1 Note handsets leaked, and the rumors claims Meizu will announce the Avengers-themed MX4 and M1 Note devices on May 18. That being said, we’ll here to talk about the MX5, the company’s eagerly anticipated device.
Some previous rumors claimed that the device will launch on July 30, and we’ve seen quite a few images of the device sporting a physical home button, much like the MX4 Pro. Well, a new render surfaced in China, showing off a device with a circular capacitive button below the display, also claiming to be the MX5. Let us make some sense out of all this, the physical home button version which leaked a number of times before is quite probably the upcoming Meizu MX5 Pro, and not the MX5. The Meizu MX5 will almost certainly feature a capacitive dot below the display considering that previous variants of the device also sported that button, it’s kind of a Meizu’s calling card. That’s just a guess at this moment, of course.
If you take a look at the gallery below the article, you’ll notice two alleged Meizu MX5 renders which leaked in China. As you can see, this device sports no bezel on the sides, and even if there are black bars on the sides, they will be incredibly thin considering the icons up top are really close to the side frame. The phone actually resembles the recently released Letv smartphones, and it looks really sleek. The MX5 will be made out of metal, and even though we still don’t know its specifications, you can expect top-of-the-line specs and a MediaTek processor on the inside of this device. Meizu’s Flyme OS will be pre-installed on top of Android, and Android Lollipop is probably the version this handset will ship with. Take this leak with a pinch of salt though, the render looks really sleek and perhaps even too good to be true, we’ll find out soon.
