Meizu is one of the fastest growing China-based smartphone OEMs in the world. This company managed to get people’s attention last year when they released a couple of well-built and well-specced devices while keeping their price points really low. Meizu MX4 and MX4 Pro were the company’s flagships in 2014, and the company has announced the long-awaited Meizu MX5 during their conference yesterday. We were present at the event, and have covered the launch quite extensively on our site. The MX5 arrived, but what about the MX5 Pro? Or even the M2? Well, we have some new info regarding that, read on.
The Meizu MX5 is not the only Meizu-branded handset that was mentioned in the last couple of weeks. The Meizu MX5 Pro has also been leaking quite frequently lately, and some reports have been stating that it might arrive this month (July), but it seems that won’t happen. Meizu actually launched both of their flagship (MX4 and MX4 Pro) at the end of last year (September and November), but the company decided to move those release dates a bit. The MX5 got announced yesterday (June), and according to our source, the MX5 Pro will arrive in Q4 this year (October or November quite probably).
What about the Meizu M2, the mid-range successor of the M1 which launched back in January? Well, according to the info provided by our source, this handset will be launched this summer, so you can expect it to see the light of day in the coming weeks. The Meizu M1 is an extremely affordable, and yet really capable mid-range handset Meizu released earlier this year, and the M2 is expected to be somewhat similar to it. We haven’t seen many leaks regarding this device, but those might start popping up soon.
According to rumors, the MX5 Pro will feature a 6-inch QHD display along with 4GB of RAM. The 4,000mAh battery was also mentioned, and same can be said about the 20-megapixel camera which will be located on the back of that device (quite probably Sony’s IMX230 20.7MP shooter that can be found in the MX5). The phone will be made out of metal, and it will ship with Android Lollipop pre-installed, while Meizu’s Flyme UI will be installed on top of it. There you have it folks, we’ll report back as soon as additional info surfaces.
