Standard Variant Of Meizu MX5 Might Cost Less Than $322

Meizu rumors and leaks are really persistent lately. We’ve seen a number of Meizu-related leaks, mainly renders and real life images of Meizu’s upcoming devices. We, of course, cannot confirm that any of those leaks are true, but Meizu M2 Note and Meizu MX5 leaks made us wonder. The M2 Note has leaked sporting a physical home button, which seems a bit odd considering its predecessor was sporting the circular capacitive button below the display. Same can be said about MX5 images, we’ve seen the device leak with a capacitive button and a physical home button. It is possible that the physical home button leaks actually showed off the upcoming Meizu MX5 Pro, and not the Meizu MX5, but we can’t be sure of that.

Anyhow, a new leak surfaced in China, though this time we’re not looking at a leaked render or anything of the sort. This new leak actually talks about the price of Meizu’s upcoming flagship, the Meizu MX5. According to the source, the standard variant of the device will cost less than 2,000 Yuan ($322), which makes sense actually. This is a great price point for Meizu, but considering that the 16GB version of MX4 was priced at 1,799 Yuan ($290) at launch, the leaked MX5 pricing certainly makes sense. We don’t have many details regarding the Meizu MX5, but according to a number of leaks, this handset might be powered by MediaTek’s Helio X20 deca-core processor, though that seems a bit far-fetched considering that the Helio X20 won’t be available until the end of the year. The Helio X10 64-bit octa-core processor seems like a more probable solution for Meizu at the moment, but we’ll see. Either way, this handset will almost certainly be powered by MediaTek’s SoC. The handset might also sport a 5.5-inch QuadHD display along with 3GB of RAM, though a 4GB variant might be available as well according to the source, and will be priced at less than 2,500 Yuan ($403). You can also expect Meizu to use metal materials here, so a premium build quality is a given.

There you have it folks, judging by the source, the MX5 will also be a really affordable handset, just like its predecessor. That makes all the sense in the world, especially considering this is Meizu we’re talking about. The MX5 is expected to be announced in September, though some leaks have been saying it will arrive sooner than that, we’ll see.
