Meizu Pro 5 Press Render Leaks, Flyme 5 Is On board

September 21, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Meizu’s upcoming ‘Pro 5’ handset has been all over the news lately. This China-based company has announced that they’ll hold an event on September 23rd, and they’ve also teased the arrival of their new flagship a couple of times thus far. The company’s VP has already confirmed that the upcoming handset will be called ‘Pro 5’, and he has also shared some partial renders of the device as well. We’ve recently seen a real life image of the Pro 5 handset, and this time around a new render leaked showcasing this device, read on.

If you take a look at the provided image above, you’ll notice that the Meizu Pro 5 handset actually resembles other Meizu-branded devices released in the last year or so, and that it is running Flyme 5 despite earlier reports. This smartphone is made out of metal, and it features a physical home button below the display. The rear-facing camera, dual-LED, dual tone flash and Meizu’s logo are also visible in this image. Both the power / lock and volume rocker physical buttons are placed on the right-hand side of this smartphone, and the device looks quite sleek all around, at least in this render.

The Meizu Pro 5 is said to sport a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, 3 / 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Both 3 and 4GB RAM variants have been mentioned in previous leaks (including benchmarks), so we’re expecting the company to release at least two variants of this smartphone. The device will be fueled by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 21-megapixel camera will quite probably be available on the back of this phone. The 5-megapixel snapper is expected to be located up front, and Android Lollipop will come pre-installed here with Meizu’s Flyme UI available on top of Google’s operating system. The physical home button (mBack) below the display, will almost certainly going to double as a fingerprint scanner. The Pro 5 is also going to offer quick charging capability, 12V / 2A to be more exact, at least according to the latest certification leak. That is more or less it as far as available info goes. Meizu will unveil this smartphone on September 23rd in China, and we’re going to cover the event live, stay tuned.
